Growing up in Harlem, the Four Tops were the epitome of excellence when they performed at the famous Apollo Theatre. As talented, well groomed entertainers, many young Black boys wanted to look and dress like them. You would hear their songs at all of our dances and family gatherings. They had positive lyrics the entire family could sing. But they were equally as popular among whites the world over, because excellence has no color. Levi Stubbs was the ultimate crooner. Married for over 48 years, he was also a strong family man. I and my wife had the privledge, 15 years ago by chance, meeting Levi after his show in an elevator in Las Vegas. He was a true gentleman. Levi, the world is going to miss you but you're singing with the angels now.
The Four Tops Performed Together For Over 40 Years.
