Enchantment

More Event Dates

(1) Remaining dates for this event

Enchantment’s music is soulful, smooth, romantic, and melodious with loving lyrics, and understanding. The golden sound of Enchantment was formed in 1967 at Pershing High School in Detroit. In 1976, the charismatic showmen received national acclaim with the release of their second single Gloria. Written and arranged by dynamic lead singer E.J. Johnson, Gloria became a smash hit. They followed it with another smash hit, “Sunshine,” from the same album. They recorded their second album in 1977 and came up with their third consecutive number-one single, It’s You That I Need, which reigned at #1 for four weeks. They continued their hit making ways with top ten singles If You’re Ready (Here It Comes), Where Do We Go From Here, Forever More, Enchanted Lady, and many more. Enchantment’s longevity is attributed to their vitality and the dedication they have for their craft. The group continues to impressively demonstrate their quality golden sound at concerts and events around the country.
