The Temptations are an American Motown singing group whose repertoire has included doo-wop, soul, psychedelia, funk, disco, R 'n B, and adult contemporary. The group, known for its finely tuned choreography, distinct harmonies, and stylish suits, was hugely influential - in fact as influential to soul as The Beatles were to rock music.
The group formed in 1960 in Detroit, Michigan, and were originally named The Elgins. They're responsible for the hit songs "My Girl" and "Papa Was a Rollin' Stone," and have fourteen number one singles to their name! The band's lineup has undergone countless changes over the years, and Otis Williams remains the only living original member.
