(born 1930 - died 23 March 1995, Newport News) and Raphael Ingram. Ingram left in 1949 and Maryland Pierce (born 1933) and Dickie Smith
became members in his place. At this juncture the name of the group was changed to The Five Keys.
In 1954 Dickie Smith left and was replaced with Ramon Loper. At this point the Five Keys was signed to Capitol Records, and their popularity increased,
although more instrumentation was used.
The group was inducted into the Vocal Group Hall of Fame in 2002.
