On October 18, 1969 The Jackson 5 made their U.S. television debut on ABC-TV’s “Hollywood Palace.”
Diana Ross was serving as the guest host of the special show devoted to Motown acts.
Ross introduces the Jackson 5 to perform, and then a 10-year-old Michael participates in comedic skits with Ross and Sammy Davis Jr. In one bit, she begins to announce a special guest and Michael walks on stage before she says his name. When she teases him, saying that he isn’t the person she was referring to, Michael replies,
“Well, who else do you think makes the stage come to real life besides me and Ed Sullivan?”.

Dennis Edwards feat. Siedah Garrett - “Don’t Look Any Further” (1984)
The bass groove, played by session man Nathan East, was sampled by Eric B. & Rakim on their 1987 hip-hop landmark "Paid In Full," which lead to many samples and interpolations over the next several years.
The song was written by Franne Golde, Duane Hitchings and Dennis Lambert, and produced by Lambert. It finds the couple looking forward to a romantic interlude, with Edwards letting her know that she need look no further for "a man to take over."
The part where Garrett and Edwards sing in another language is a loose translation of "Don't Look Any Further" in Swahili: "Day-o day-o, mombajee ai-o."
This was issued on the Gordy label, which was part of Motown Records.
In 1968, Dennis Edwards replaced David Ruffin in The Temptations, handling lead vocals on many classics, including "I Can't Get Next To You" and "Cloud Nine." He left the group in 1983 and released his debut solo album, Don't Look Any Further (1984) with the title track the first single, being by far his biggest solo hit. Edwards returned to The Temptations in 1987, but left in 1989. He later toured as "The Temptations Review featuring Dennis Edwards."

Rick James - “Give It To Me” (1981) was a #1 R&B hit for five weeks. James said, "I wrote it because I had come home one night and my old lady was in bed and I wanted to mess around, but I was too drunk. So I sat at the piano and wrote the song." James overdubbed the off-the-beat tom-tom drums in this song to create a distinctive track. He would create a "skeleton" of a song, then look for unusual elements to "color it."
