Results for - Fatherly and Daughterly Musicality

1. Figuring pretty high among my all-time favorite musical acts is The Staple Singers. Though Roebuck "Pops" Staples son, Pervis, was in the group's line-up for a while, the act is most famed in its combination of their patriarch and daughters Yvonne, Cleotha and Mavis. At various stages in their career, they were accepted in soul gospel, r&b, pop, folk and club music circles. The clip accompanying this question sees them singing their minor hit rendition of Talking Heads' "Slippery People," Do you personally know any families with musical talent who like at least as wide an array of styles?

2. Going from the rather sublime Staples family to something more ridiculous, one of the most misbegotten #1 U.S. pop hits ever, in my estimation, must be Frank and Nancy Sinatra's "Something Stupid," On their own, both had recorded excellent work, but this sorta' incestuous glop is no boon to either singer's reputation. Do you know of any dad and daughter combination who have participated in something mutually embarrassing together?

3. If the carnality in the Sinstras' song is at least implied, The Kerndalls were often more explicit. The country duo comprised of dadf Royce and daughter Jeannie Kendall had their probably biggest hit with "Heaven's Just a Sin Away." Catchy and country to the bone, it's still a father and daughter singing about fornication. Can you think of a dad and daughter participating in something that gives of an unsavory impression without their being involved in anything actually untoward?

4. To end on a more uplifting note, The Whites' combination of father Buck and daughters Cheryl and Sharon flitted between bluegrass, country and gospel. The similarly diversely inclined Ricky Skaggs boosted his musical pedigree and built upon The Whites' by marrying Sheryl, but his wife-to-and in-laws-to-be had their own run of hits before the familial merger. Do you know anyone who married into a family with a heritage in something important to the person marrying into that family?
