A birthday party in Detroit.

The beginning of a powerhouse group, their Motown musical renditions creating endless hits.

The formation of the Four Tops – one of those aha moments.

Two friends went to the that birthday party.

So did another two friends.

They did not know each

But one thing they had in common – all going to the same high school, all loved music.

They ended up singing at that birthday party – the Four Tops were born.

For more than 40 years they worked together without any personnel changes, receiving endless accolades, creating hit after hit.

Rolling Stone ranked them number 79 on the list of the 100 Greatest Artists Of All Times.
