Teddy Pendergrass's rough, sensual croon was first introduced to the listening public during his tenure as a singer for Harold Melvin and the Blue Notes. After leaving the group in 1976, Pendergrass recorded several albums for Gamble & Huff's famed Philadelphia International label, and became one of the definitive purveyors of the slow jam. Pendergrass was left permanently paralyzed and confined to a wheelchair following a car accident in 1983. Despite his disability, Pendergrass continued to record and has remained one of R&B's most popular artists.
