Born and raised in Detroit, Michigan, Pam Vincent began her professional career in show business as a young teen in the 1960's.
Her sister, Joyce, first began as a Motown/Stax artist. Soon after her group disbanded, Joyce began singing on sessions that proved more lucrative than being a recording artist. Pam soon followed in her sister's footsteps and united with Joyce in the studio. The two quickly became a highly sought-after background vocals team. It was also during this time that they met with Telma Hopkins and within three years, would go on to perform background vocals on an enormously impressive list of some of the most legendary songs ever produced by Motown.
In 1970, Bell Records tapped Joyce and Telma to become "Dawn." They were paired with Tony Orlando and upon the success of "Candida" and "Knock Three Times," would go on tour in Europe. Pam sought out two new session singers to fill the void left by Joyce & Telma, and would join with Donna Davis Sadler and Cynthia Douglas to form her own group, "Brandye." The group released one album, "Crossover To Brandye," on the Kayvette/T.K. Records label - where they also provided backing vocals for label-mates, K. C. & The Sunshine Band on the album, containing their mega hit "Get Down Tonight." Brandye quickly began working both in the studio and in live performances with an extensive list of established artists, such as Johnny Taylor, Marilyn McCoo & Billy Davis, Funkadelic, Bob Seeger, James Brown, Peabo Bryson, and Isaac Hayes.
After Dawn's tour of Europe, Pam joined them in the studio where in addition to singing, she also arranged all the background vocals. Touring commitments with Aretha Franklin as well as her involvement in many other projects meant Pam seldom appeared with them, but she is credited with the other members of Dawn on all of the group's albums.
In 1991, Tony Orlando, along with Joyce and Pam, released "With Ev'ry Yellow Ribbon (That's Why We Tie 'Em)". A DVD compilation from their variety series was released in 2005, as well as the group's catalog of albums on CD. Tony Orlando & Dawn also reunited to release the "A Christmas Reunion" CD that same year. Publicity events for those releases marked the first time Telma, Joyce, and Pamela appeared together onstage.
On November 9, 2008, Joyce & Pam experienced another musical milestone when they appeared to accept their awards to be INDUCTED INTO THE VOCAL GROUP HALL OF FAME
Joyce and Pam continue their impressive careers as session singers as well as performing around the world. They are currently members of the 5-piece group Tour De 4Force, which also includes Jim Gilstrap, Theresa Davis, and former Supreme Scherrie Payne and released the album, "QUIET MOON". In September 2009, Joyce was added as a member of the Former Ladies of the Supremes, which is now billed as Scherrie Payne and Lynda Laurence. They often appear at special events such as the annual Heroes And Legends (HAL) Awards in Beverly Hills, California. They often work with their good friend Windy Barnes-Farrell - as members of Windy's Inspirational Voices of Free gospel group. They can be seen on the Christmas special at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion, which is televised annually.
They have millions of fans internationally that continue to follow and support these talented sisters and are always eagerly waiting to support their next project.
