Ben E. King recorded some of the most memorable songs of the ’50s and ’60s, earning fame with his rich and expressive baritone voice. King was hired as the new lead singer of the Drifters in 1958, and sang lead on hits including “There Goes My Baby,” “Save the Last Dance for Me,” “This Magic Moment,” and “I Count the Tears.” In 1960, he left the Drifters, and his solo debut “Spanish Harlem” was a hit. It was followed by his biggest hit, “Stand by Me.” King co-wrote “Stand by Me” with the legendary duo of Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller, and it’s been named one of the greatest songs of the 20th century by several publications. With eleven top-ten hits in his career, King was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a Drifter, and has also been nominated as a solo artist.
