What ever happened to the group Faith, Hope, and Charity? They had a few hits back in the 70's and sang background on a lot of other hits back then, including David Ruffin. The members were Albert Bailey, Brenda Hillard, and Zulema Cusseuzx, who went solo, and recorded by the name Zulema, and was replaced by Diane Destry. Where are they now and what has happened to Zulema and her solo career?

Diane passed away from Aids and drug abuse.
I do not know what hapened to the rest. I saw Zulema in concrt back in the day.

So Much for the Cardinal Virtues of Faith, Hope and Charity???

Zulema went solo soon after "So Much Love" was released on the Maxwell label. She recorded for Sussex briefly & was featured in the concert film "Save The Children." Around 1975 she signed with RCA Records & recorded her version of Michael Jackson's "I Wanna Be Where You Are," a nice-sized R&B hit for her. She recorded 2 or 3 albums for RCA before fading into the sunset.
Music researcher David Nathan reissued through Ichiban Records a fine Zulema anthology of her RCA sessions that is sadly out of print. From what I remember of the liner notes (keep in mind the CD came out in 1993-94), Zulema is still alive and well. If you go on Nathan's website (davidnathan.com) and email him, he could probably give you better insight.

One thing we should never, ever forget: while there was talent in front of the microphone, there was also a genius behind the scenes of Faith, Hope & Charity: Van McCoy was with them every step of the way, each label they recorded for, until the group broke up. What an amazing talent he was!

Wow! Faith, Hope and Charity. I had long fogotten them. I saw them in person when they opened for the "new" Supremes in 70, right after Ross left and Jean took lead. They were quite good, as I remember. Does anyone know if there's a CD of their's floating around?

Yes Supreme...the Faith, Hope, & Charity CD (with a Ernie Barnes looking cover art) featuring "To Each His Own" is available through the usual internet sources.

Well, I've looked and looked....but, can't find a Faith, Hope and Charity CD. Any suggestions out there?

Supreme...if all else fails, try www.GEMM.com. I've found a wealth of out of print music there...including David T. Walker's Ode Records output. (Just be sure you check any particular vendor's ratings....)

I've been looking for a CD compilation on Faith, Hope & Charity for years and have yet to find one. I'd love to own re-mastered versions of their Sussex/RCA/20th Century recordings on CD...

I came across a Faith, Hope & Charity LP in a record store last year. I should've picked it up. Maybe I can try back at that store to see if it's still there.
