August 10, 1940 Happy Birthday Bobby Hatfield (Righteous Brothers)!
Somehow, You’ve Lost That Lovin Feeling just doesn’t sound right with only one voice. I sang my part, so if any of you want to jump in, have at it!
The Stingers have been around for a long time. Different great singers have been in my roster over the years, but in the day George Morton (who passed away a few years ago) and Ty Stephens (who is in Monte Carlo now but coming back soon) would sing this song together with great choreography they made up on the spot.
Sometimes in singing or in dancing there come along 2 people who are so in sync with each other it’s magical.
George and Ty HAD IT! They were mesmerizing together. We couldn’t lose. The Stingers also had that same magic with Valarie Pettiford (TV & Movie Star extraordinaire) and Allison Williams Foster (Broadway Diva). These 2 – when they got together — would pull out some Bob Fosse moves and slay all the men in the audience (and some women too)! These four were so fierce together we cast them in the original circa 1990 version of our rock opera Winner Take All at Sweetwaters.
Well, You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feeling was George and Ty’s big number and I can’t sing it without thinking of them!
