    Willie Headen. He was the lead singer of The Kansas City Gospel Singers, who had two releases on Castle (1950) and one on SwingTime (1951).

    While on tour in Los Angeles, he decided to remain there and further his musical career. In 1956, the popularity of blues music had faded, and Headen and Dootone's Dootsie Williams formed an R&B vocal group that they called the Five Birds.
