FAITH, HOPE & CHARITY To Each His Own
Founding members of the group were Zulema Cusseaux, Brenda Hilliard and Al Bailey. Originally a trio called the Lovelles, when they met record producer, Van McCoy, and were signed to a recording contract by Maxwell Records, the group's name was changed to Faith, Hope and Charity. Their song "So Much Love" hit #14 on the Billboard R&B chart and #51 on the Hot 100 in 1970. The subsequent release "Baby Don't Take Your Love" reached #36 R&B and #96 in the Hot 100.
Cusseaux left Faith, Hope and Charity in 1971, shortly after a label switch to Sussex Records, and started a solo career. She was eventually replaced by Diane Destry in 1974. Their biggest hit was in 1975 with "To Each His Own" (#1 R&B, #15 Dance, #50 Hot 100).
They then scored another hit in January 1976, reaching #38 in the UK Singles Chart with "Just One Look" (from their album, Faith, Hope & Charity). It was a cover version of a Doris Troy track. Nothing they subsequently recorded came close, and their last chart record was "Don't Pity Me" (#20 R&B) for 20th Century Records in 1978.
It seemed that there was another member of Faith Hope & Charity in 1977. Priscilla Baskerville has been credited as being a member of the group on some recordings.
In 1978 Destry left, but Hilliard and Bailey carried on for another album before splitting up
