- UNIFICS, the show-stopping soul group from the Washington, D.C. area, was established at Howard University in 1966 by Al Johnson and Tom Fauntleroy, two students from Newport News, VA. The UNIFICS signed with Kapp Records in 1968 and released two hit singles ”Court of Love” and “Beginning of My End”. Often called “the act that no group wanted to follow”, hometown icons, the UNIFICS “raised the bar” to the satisfaction of standing-room-only audiences at the Apollo Theater, Uptown Theater, and the Howard Theater.
- An American R & B singer, first a member of the R & B Group Mista before signing to rapper Ludacris through his imprint, Disturbing the Peace under Def Jam Recordings. His Album Electrik in 2018 includes a collaboration with Snoop Dog. In June 2022, Bobby V in Verzuz, paired with Ray J. and went against Sammie with Pleasure P. Their segment went viral resulting in the four singers to meet virtually on social media and develop a R & B supergroup R.S.V.P, currently under development.
