The Three Degrees are a female Philadelphia soul and disco vocal musical group, formed in 1963 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
Although always fronted by a three person line-up, there have been a number of personnel changes, and a total of twelve women have represented the group so far.
The original members were Fayette Pinkney, Shirley Porter and Linda Turner.
The trio, tagged by the media as 'Prince Charles' favourites' were the first girl group to top the UK Singles Chart since The Supremes in 1964. They are best known for their million selling 1974 hit song, "When Will I See You Again".
