The 5th Dimension

Uploaded by jbenford
“Aquarius/Let The Sunshine In” by The 5th Dimension is one of the most iconic songs of the 1960s songs that embodies the spirit of the era. After its release in 1969, the song spent six weeks on the Billboard singles chart, selling three million copies. “Aquarius/Let The Sunshine In” won Grammys for Record of the Year and Best Contemporary Vocal Performance by a Group. As people of color, The 5th Dimension (sometimes called The Black Mamas and Papas) didn’t receive the same “peace and love” mentality as their white counterparts. Despite those hurdles, the group has 22 Top 40 hits and five singles that hit No. 1. See the prolific group when they take the stage at The Palace Theatre on Sunday, tie-dye not required.
