Harsey comes from a singing family. His mother, aunts, and cousins had a gospel group called “The Starletts”. They were the female version of his grandfather, great uncles, uncles & cousins family quartet group called the Morning Star Gospel Singers. While singing with the Morning Stars, Harsey would befriend (Charles Hardy) and together they would become singing partners through out their careers. Harsey was also in ‘Sky’s The Limit’ (De-lite Records). He would sing on studio projects and work along side of well known producers like, Teddy Riley (Guy and Black Street Fame) Patrick Adams (Black Ivory Fame) Tony Wells (The Jet’s, Glenn Jones, Evan Rogers). Harsey is the cousin of the late Shirley Hemphill of (What’s Happening fame) he has a very out going personality, he loves to be around people the more the better. Harsey has one of the sweetest 1st Tenors in the business though it hasn’t been heard on lead songs as of yet. When you do hear him, you will see why they call him the Candyman. What caught Sonny’s ear from the beginning was the vocal blend that Harsey and Charles had between them. Harsey sings 1st Tenor in the group and although he is the youngest member of the Manhattans, he’s old in experience.
