Houston is well-known to the world of Disco, R&B and Motown. One of her most notable singles during that period was “You’ve Been Doing Wrong for So Long” which secured her a Grammy nomination for a Best Female R&B Vocal Performance. Houston released her third album Any Way You Like It in 1976 and the first single released was her version of Harold Melvin & the Blue Notes’ 1975 song “Don’t Leave Me This Way”. In February 1977 the track hit Number 1 in the U.S. on the R&B and Club Play Singles charts and in April 1977 on the Hot 100 Charts.

“Don’t Leave Me This Way” won Houston the Best Female R&B Vocal Performance at the Grammys for 1977.

Thelma’s Grammy-honored career spans four decades of American musical history, yet her vocals have never sounded richer than today.

Thelma Houston & JANITOR met in 2012 while performing at a benefit concert in Northern California. He played cello. She sang. Despite the 42 years between them, a musical bond was clear. Writing and recording music since 2012, Thelma & JANITOR are pleased to release their debut EP, “fortytwo” ­named for the difference in their ages ­ on September 17, 2013. The five-song EP maps a journey of success and struggle in Thelma’s words and a genre-defying tapestry of contemporary and vintage sounds in JANITOR’s beats.
