It was ’71 and after a major summer touring schedule in the states (NY fans STILL talk about the Forest Hills stadium appearance!) and a top-rated network TV special (“Traveling Sunshine Show”), The 5th Dimension–Marilyn, Florence, Billy, Ronald & LaMonte– were the featured guests for the finale of the Jerry Lewis Labor Day Telethon. The songs performed were a LIVE version of “Light Sings,” then Marilyn stepped forward to unveil The 5th’s new single, “Never My Love.” It was all pretty thrilling!
As awesome fan reviews of “MarBill” at Catalina Jazz Club this holiday weekend are coming in on Marilyn & Billy’s official Facebook page, The 5th Dimension Family wishes you a blessed, peaceful Labor Day Weekend…may the Light sing!!
And remember, The 5th Dimension featuring Florence LaRue;
group founder, LaMonte McLemore;
and the duo of Marilyn McCoo & Billy Davis, Jr.,
EACH have exciting endeavors this coming fall and holiday season…stay tuned!! —Robert-Allan Arno
