Personalities | Kim Weston | Sixties | Rock

(Vocals, b. 1939)

Best known for her duets with Marvin Gaye, Weston was also a successful Motown solo artist. She reached R&B No. 2 with 1965’s ‘Take Me In Your Arms (Rock Me A Little While)’, later covered by The Doobie Brothers, and notoriously turned down ‘Dancing In The Streets’, only to see Martha Reeves take it to No. 1. She had already left Motown when her last duet with Gaye, 1967’s ‘It Takes Two’, became her biggest hit.
