R&B Singer. He was the bass singer and original member of The Spinners. During the 1950s, he and his high school friends first formed a doo-wop ensemble called The Domingoes; later changing their name to The Spinners, they recorded for Harvey Fugua and Gwen Gordy's label Tri-Phi label before switching to Motown in 1963. They were best known for such hits as, "I'll Be Around", "Could It Be I'm Falling In Love", and Mighty Love". In 1999 the group was inducted into the Vocal Group Hall of Fame. Pervis was perhaps best known for his famous solo part "12:45" in "Games People Play (They Just Can't Stop It)". He continued to perform with the Spinners until his death. (bio by: Babe)
