Rose Royce – The Artist

Rose Royce is an American soul and R&B group. They are best known for several hit singles during the 1970s including “Car Wash”, “I Wanna Get Next to You”, “I’m Going Down”, “Wishing on a Star”, and “Love Don’t Live Here Anymore”.The Los Angeles-based group comprised Gwen Dickey (vocals), Henry Garner (drums), Terral “Terry” Santiel (congas), Lequeint “Duke” Jobe (bass), Michael Moore (saxophone), Kenny Copeland (trumpet, lead vocals), Kenji Brown (guitar, lead vocals), Freddie Dunn (trumpet), and Victor Nix (keyboards). Their breakthrough came when they produced the soundtrack for the film Car Wash. The groups name is compiled of the stage name of the charismatic singer (Rose Norwait) and the Rolls Royce the prestige car.

Wishing On A Star – The Song

“Wishing On A Star  is a 1977 hit single by Rose Royce for Whitfield Records, subsequently covered by numerous other artists. Included on their second album, In Full Bloom, “Wishing on a Star” is a slow ballad written by former Undisputed Truth member Billie Rae Calvin and produced by Norman Whitfield. It was sung by Gwen Dickey under her stage name. The lyrics concern a woman longing for the return of an ex-lover so that they can resume their relationship.

The Five-Pointed Star – The Shape

Modelled into a silhouette of a star. A five-pointed star, geometrically a regular concave decagon, is a common ideogram in modern culture. Comparatively rare in classical heraldry, it was notably introduced for the flag of the United States in the Flag Act of 1777 and since has become widely used in flags. It has also become a symbol of fame or “stardom” in Western culture, among other uses.
