Rose Royce played an important role in the resurgence of soul during the Seventies, re-establishing the music-making career of Sixties songwriting legend Norman Whitfield.
Songwriter and producer Norman was an integral part of the Motown Records hit-making machine. With the famous record label he wrote and produced soul classics like I Heard It Through The Grapevine, Ain’t Too Proud To Beg, Papa Was a Rolling Stone and Just My Imagination (Running Away With Me).
After leaving Motown, Whitfield put together a group to perform his brand-new material.
