Biography
Hank Ballard (November 18, 1927 - March 2, 2003) was an American rhythm and blues singer and a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. He was the lead vocalist of the group Hank Ballard & The Midnighters. He was born in Detroit, Michigan but grew up in Bessemer, Alabama, where he sang in church. In 1951, Ballard moved back to Detroit and formed a doo wop group. He soon joined a group called The Royals, along with Henry Booth, Charles Sutton, Sonny Woods and Alonzo Tucker. The Royals had already signed to Federal Records when Ballard joined, and the group soon released Get It (1953), a major R&B hit.
