25 Jan 2004 – The final episode examines the evolution of harmony singing, from gospel via doo-wop, rhythm & blues, soul and rock to the boy bands of today. Doo-wop was a vibrant musical style and street culture that evolved from gospel, emerging on street corners, where rival gangs held singing battles, and developing into a major and influential musical genre. In spite of its links with gospel, the church viewed doo-wop as the devil's music, as it did rhythm & blues, although it too was inspired by gospel. Motown took harmony singing to a new audience, with a global influence that extended to the Beatles.
