The People's Choice (band)
(Read all about the People's Choice after the video)
The People's Choice was an American funk band formed in 1971 in Philadelphia by Frank Brunson and David Thompson. While they had several vocalists, their biggest hits were instrumentals.
Their debut single, "I Likes To Do It," got to #9 on the U.S. Billboard R&B chart and #38 on the Billboard Hot 100. A short time later Kenny Gamble and Leon Huff saw People's Choice in concert, and told Brunson that they wished the group had recorded "I Likes To Do It" for Philadelphia International Records. Gamble & Huff signed the group up in 1974, and it was with them that they had another hit single with "Do It Any Way You Wanna. It sold over one million copies in three months, and was awarded a gold disc by the R.I.A.A. in November 1975. This song was used in Fred Williamson's 1976 film Death Journey.
Brunson died on November 24, 2007 after a long illness.
