Three Degrees, The

This Philadelphia female vocal trio formed in 1965 and was fashioned into a slick act with the ability to play intense soul as well as smooth ballads and disco-style dance music.


Best known for their 1974 hit, When Will I See You Again? the group had a greater impact in Britain than they did in America, although their credibility was somewhat slighted when Prince Charles declared then his favourite band in the 70s.

He invited them to perform at his 30th birthday party on 15 November 1978 where it became apparent to lead vocalist Sheila Ferguson that he also appreciated her personal finer points . . .

After leaving the band, Fayette Pinkney recorded one solo album (1979’s One Degree) before quitting music to work as an education coordinator, counsellor and therapist in Philadelphia. She passed away in 2009.
