An African American gospel sextet playing Harlem's Apollo Theater in the finale of the entertaining 1970 blaxploitation film, Cotton Comes to Harlem. The group is comprised of three young ladies and three boys. They're singing onstage when evangelist Deke O'Malley (Calvin Lockhart) reveals himself for the skunk he is when he hits and curses one of the boys in front of a capacity crowd, trying to wrest a mic away from him.
