Jessie Lee Daniels was a member of The Force MDs, his R&B vocal group. The American male was born in Staten Island on July 4, 1963. The group, which was created in 1981, was successful in their hometown of Staten Island.
The group was well-known in the New York nightlife, playing music from genres such as urban, quiet type, and new jack swing. They were found by Vansilk and began cooperating after performing on the streets and on the boat for a while. They joined to Tommy Boy Records and released their debut album, Love Letters, in addition to cultivating a local fan following.
The band was founded in Staten Island, New York, in 1981. Tender Love and Love is a House are two of Force MDs’ best-known songs from the 1980s. The group was originally called as The L.D.s, and they were one of the first vocal groups to combine doo-woop-affected singing with hip-hop sounds.
The group’s founding members were brothers Stevie D., Antoine “T.C.D.’ Lundy, and Rodney “Khalil” Lundy, as well as their uncle Jesse Lee Daniels. “Trisco” Pearson and Charles “Mercury” Nelson then joined them.
In 1984, Tommy Boy Records signed them and published their first album, Love Letters. They went on to record a compilation of R&B songs in the 1980s, which was well appreciated by the public. Love is a House, from the Force MDs’ third album, Touch & Go, was their first R&B hit in 1987. The group became more well-known after the release of their fourth album, Step to Me, in 1990.
Moments in Time, the band’s 1994 album, received little attention. They did, however, feature in the tracks of the 1996 album Ironman. Within five years, three of the group’s members perished. Dr. Rock died of a heart attack in 1996, and Nelson died of a heart attack in 1995. In 1998, Antoine Lundy died of Lou Gehrig’s disease. In 2000, the remaining members released the album The Reunion, which marked their comeback. However, it did not have the same level of success as their earlier singles.
