Formed in the San Francisco Bay area in 1963, Caldwell was an original member of the group that included twin brothers Walter and Wallace Scott, Marcus Hutson and Gordy Harmon.
Their first top 10 R&B hit was in 1970 with “Seems Like I Gotta Do Wrong.”
Their first album to go platinum was “The Whispers” in 1980. It included the disco hit, “And The Beat Goes On.”
