RIDGEFIELD, Conn. – Seven time Grammy Award-winning couple Marilyn McCoo and Billy Davis, Jr., original stars and lead singers of the group The 5th Dimension, will perform Saturday at 8 p.m. at the Ridgefield Playhouse.
The 5th Dimension is known for pop hits such as "Up, Up and Away," "Aquarius/Let the Sunshine In," "Worst That Could Happen," "Stoned Soul Picnic," "Sweet Blindness," "Wedding Bell Blues" and "One Less Bell to Answer." After leaving The 5th Dimension, McCoo and Davis recorded "You Don't Have to be a Star (to Be in My Show)," a chart topping No. 1 record, which won them their seventh Grammy Award and a television series on CBS.
Additionally, Davis devoted his efforts to a successful gospel music career, and McCoo performed in television's "Solid Gold." The couple enjoyed success through the years as recording artists, performers and authors. Along with their multiple Grammys, they have earned 15 gold and three platinum records. Married for more than 44 years, the pair co-authored, "Up, Up and Way," chronicling their relationship and musical careers while sharing secrets and advice for staying happy and committed.
Named by Billboard as the "The First Couple of Pop and Soul," McCoo and Davis will perform a musical tribute to the hits throughout their careers at their show on Saturday.
