Formed in Chicago in 1965, the Five Stairsteps included Burke, three of his brothers and a sister. They owed their name to their mother, who said that they looked like stairsteps when they stood beside each other in order of age, the Los Angeles Times ( ) reported.

Invisible Man's BandThe Burke FamilyThe Five Stairsteps, known as "The First Family of Soul", were an American Chicago soul group made up of five of Betty and Clarence Burke Sr.'s six children: Alohe Jean, Clarence Jr., James, Dennis, and Kenneth "Keni", and briefly, Cubie. They are best known for the 1970 song "O-o-h Child", listed #392 on Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Songs of All Time. Later regrouped in the 1980s as Invisible Man's Band.

The song remains their biggest (and only) hit in the US. Thirty five years after its release, former Disney Channel star Selena Gomez covered the song for the soundtrack of her show "Wizards of Waverly Place."


The song peaked at number one on the Hot 100, and topped charts around the world. Simple Minds capitalized on its success and actually scored another top five single with "Alive and Kicking," but the band's enduring legacy will always be "Don't You (Forget About Me)."


Even though Biz Markie is a certified one-hit wonder, he is definitely beloved. VH1 ranked "Just A Friend" at 81 on their list of greatest hip hop songs ever. The song is certified Platinum, and also Markie's only song to ever grace the Hot 100.


But "Baby Got Back" was huge in its own right. It spent five weeks at number one on the Billboard Hot 100, a feat none of the rapper's other singles came close to reaching. Even if you think you hate this song, give it one more try (when was the last time you listened to it in its entirety?) and just try not to smile.


The group was managed by their dad, Clarence Burke Sr., who was a police detective. The band's name reportedly came from their mom Betty, who noted the five siblings resembled a staircase when lined up by age.

The Chicago group was dubbed "First Family of Soul" because of their successful five-year chart run; the moniker was later passed on to The Jackson 5. Initially a teenage five-member brothers and sister vocal group made up of the children of Betty and Clarence Burke, The Five Stairsteps, named by Mrs. Burke who thought her kids looked like stairsteps when lined up according to their age, featured lead singer Clarence Jr., Alohe, James, Dennis, and 13-year-old Kenneth ("Keni"). Most of the members attended Harlan High School. Clarence Sr. was a detective for the Chicago Police Department. He backed the group on bass guitar, managed them, and co-wrote songs with Clarence Jr. and Gregory Fowler. 076b4e4f54
