Biography

A Bronx duo remembered for “We Belong Together,” a beautiful harmony ballad that made the Top 40 in 1958, Robert Carr and Johnny Mitchell made about a dozen singles for the Old Town label in the late ’50s and early ’60s, none of which made remotely as much impact. As one-hit doo wop wonders go, though, they were more interesting than most. They wrote almost all of their material and had a pleasingly distinctive contrast between their closely harmonized voices (one smoky, one nasal). They also covered a more versatile ground than most acts of the genre, proving capable at up-tempo bluesy numbers as well as ballads. Robert Carr passed away in 1994 and Johnny Mitchell shortly after in 1995 after long illness’.

    It took a long time, but I finally found the artist who did the song "We Belong Together"! Although other renditions were recorded after this song Robert and Johnny wrote, most of them pale in comparision! To me, they had very good voices!
