Great High school talent from the '80's. Greensboro, NC James B. Dudley High School students (I think some may have gone to Smith also); came together as Otis Shabazz (lead singer) and the Imperial Force. Once again, RELAY (later AmericasCHILD RELAY) students provided the "stage" for this talented group of youngsters. I have no doubt that had they received the proper management, exposure and leadership--they would have been the "original" "Black Eye Peas" or BETTER! Tune back in on AmericasCHILD RELAY in the future for more from this exciting group--including a song they dedicated to "Dudley High". Clearly there was NO SHORTAGE OF TALENT. Unfortunately, just goes to show that great musical skills and talent does not automatically equate to musical and/or financial success. The management side needs to kick in. ENJOY! P.S. This is a "rebroadcast" of the 1987 telecast and thus has been "re-edited" to include a "promo" of a memorial broadcast for the great Greensboro children and youth advocate, Ervin Brisbone, Sr. who passed away in 1998. No one in Greensboro should mind sharing the "stage" with Ervin however. Ervin also was key in bringing the first 13 members of RELAY into our program. RIP Ervin; WELL DONE!--THEN the broadcast RETURNS to Otis Shabazz & Imperial Force.
