As noted in the British Hit Singles & Albums, Shalamar were regarded as fashion icons and trendsetters, helping to introduce 'body-popping' to the UK. Jeffrey Daniel brought street dance to the United Kingdom – he is noted as the dance mentor for Michael Jackson and the man that taught him the moonwalk having first performed the dance on US TV with the Electric Boogaloos. Howard Hewett is a one of the most iconic US soul artistes of all time, releasing numerous solo albums and collaborating or performing with some of the greats including Stevie Wonder, George Duke, Earth, Wind and Fire, Teena Marie, Anita Baker, Dionne Warwick, Deniece Williams and El Debarge. He was recently voted by Soul Tracks as one of the top 10 greatest male soul singers of all time.
