Forming in 1981, The Deele recorded three albums during the 1980s, and scored two hit singles. In 1984 “Body Talk” reached #77 on the Billboard Hot 100 pop chart.
In 1987 their song “Two Occasions” reached #4 on the R&B charts and was the biggest hit for the group, which created new opportunities to write and co-produce for
others such as Babyface, Tevin Campbell, Bobby Brown, and The Whispers (Rock Steady) to name a few.
The group reunited in 1993, without Reid and Edmonds, to record their final album, Invitation to Love. The Deele in 2007 is back and currently touring to

This would be the beginning of an entity that would give birth to the most influential group of musicians and singers in the music industry today,
changing the course of R&B forever.
