Inducted into the Vocal Hall of Fame in 2002, the group scored twenty Billboard Top 100 hits with four in the top 10, including "This Magic Moment," "Walkin' in the Rain," "Cara Mia," "She Cried," "Only in America" and "Come a Little Bit Closer."
Jay & The Americans were originally formed as a group of six high school classmates from the Belle Harbor neighborhood on Long Island and were originally known by the name "The Harbor Lites".
