Alexander O’Neal and Cherrelle


They were the Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell of their time – an unlikely pairing of opposite personalities that made musical magic together. Alexander O’Neal grew up poor and troubled in Mississippi, while Cherrelle was the pampered daughter of a successful attorney in Beverly Hills. He sang ballads with the gruff-voiced soul of a Teddy Pendergrass, while she showed off an appealing voice and good looks on infectiously fast-paced dance hits. But both artists, whose most popular songs were often produced by the stellar team of Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, really took off when they were teamed together on unforgettable duets like "Saturday Love."
