88. Tammi Terrell
Band Or Solo Artist?: Solo
Greatest Hit: "Ain't No Mountain High Enough" (1967)
Motown was a magical era in music. There were solo artists and groups that consistently cranked classic cuts year after year. A few of those classics came courtesy of the lovely and talented Tammi Terrell. In 1967, "Ain't No Mountain High Enough" burned up the charts. While it's commonly referenced as a Marvin Gaye song, it's important to remember that the track was as much his as it was Terrell's.
Following the success of her first big hit, Terrell released "You're All I Need To Get By," which was famously remixed by Method Man and Mary J. Blige in 1995. The fact that the person behind two of the greatest songs from the Motown era was extremely attractive makes the listening experience that much better.
