The O’Jays have spent more than 40 years producing hits and entertaining audiences with their soulful singing and incredible stage presence, and include original members Eddie Levert, Sr. and Walter Williams, Sr. and gifted vocalist Eric Nolan Grant who joined the group in 1995.

With a career that spans more than 50 years, The O’Jays were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2005, the Vocal Group Hall of Fame in 2004 and received the Lifetime Achievement Award from BET in 2009.
