René & Angela

René & Angela were an early-’80s soul duo from Los Angeles. Before forming in 1977, René Moore — the brother of Rufus’ Bobby Watson — played with the Brothers Johnson; Angela Winbush had sung backup vocals for Dolly Parton, Lenny Williams, and Jean Carn. René & Angela had their first R&B hit for Capitol Records in 1980 and proceeded to have seven other hits over the next three years. Along with Watson, they collaborated as songwriters and producers for the likes of Rufus & Chaka Khan, Janet Jackson, and Plush. In 1985, the duo switched to Mercury, where they had the number one R&B hit “Save Your Love (For #1)” — their first single from the album Street Called Desire. Over the next year, the group had three other Top Ten hits — including the number one R&B single “Your Smile” and the number two “You Don’t Have to Cry” — before pursuing solo careers. Moore released a solo album in 1988 and co-wrote Michael Jackson’s “Jam,” while Winbush enjoyed more success during the tail-end of the decade and the first half of the ’90s. Winbush also wrote and produced material for Ronald Isley, the Isley Brothers, Stephanie Mills, and Lalah Hathaway; she and Isley were briefly married.
