SOUL TRAIN SPOTLIGHT// THE DRAMATICSPublished by Taj R. Chrisp on Tuesday, December 14, 2010 at 9:00 am.
The Dramatics may not have been filled with a ton of drama, but they definitely were a group that graced any stage that they were on with amazing songs, choreography, and most importantly: a whole lot of soul.
These six men joined forces in Detroit, Michigan in 1967, but they didn’t find commercial success until the 1970’s with their top ten hits “Whatcha See Is Whatcha Get” and “In The Rain.” Their work was so instrumental in music history that they were guests on Snoop Dogg’s 1993 single “Doggy Dog World” and 2002’s “Ballin’.
Outside of working with Snoop Dogg, The Dramatics have remained a major part of our culture by having a legacy that lives on through soundtracks for the films Sunday Driver, Wattstax, and the Don Cheadle 2007 film Talk to Me.
To catch The Dramatics at their best, tune in to Soul Train today at 11PM and 12 AM EST only on Centric.
