As part of the GRAMMY Museum’s Programs at Home, Moderator Scott Goldman talks with seven-time GRAMMY winners Marilyn McCoo and Billy Davis, Jr. about the making of their highly anticipated first new album in three decades, Blackbird: Lennon-McCartney Icons, out April 30. Following the conversation, fans can relive Marilyn and Billy’s exciting memories at the GRAMMY Awards. Marilyn McCoo and Billy Davis, Jr., are the co-founders and lead singers of the original 5th Dimension, where they launched Champagne and Pop Soul Classics, including "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 original 5th Dimension, Marilyn and Billy recorded "You Don't Have to be a Star (to Be in My Show)," a chart topping number 1 record, which won them their 7th GRAMMY Award and a network television variety show on CBS. "The Marilyn McCoo and Billy Davis, Jr. Show" made TV history, with the couple being the first African-American married couple to have their own variety show.
