Best remembered for their tremendous hit single "Car Wash", Rose Royce were one of the most successful and talented soul groups to emerge out of the 1970's. Hailing from Los Angeles, the band was formed by high school friends. They were soon working as studio musicians and then began a slew of hits themselves. Their music has been sampled and covered by artists as diverse as Madonna, Mary J. Blige and Christina Aguilera. Other songs they are famous for include "Do Your Dance", "I'm in Love" and "Wishing on a Star".
