Signed by Bobby Robinson, one of the powerhouse record men of Southern soul and R&B, Hightower eked out two national hits - "It's a Miracle," which peaked at 33 on Billboard's R&B charts in 1969; it was eclipsed by a version of Joe South's "Walk a Mile in My Shoes" the next year - before fading from view . Hightower made his first steps toward a career in music in the mid-'60s when he signed a management contract with Shelley Stewart, who also DJ'ed in Birmingham, Alabama on WENN.

Out of the Blue is the seventh studio album by the British rock group Electric Light Orchestra (ELO), released in October 1977. Written and produced by ELO frontman Jeff Lynne, the double album is among the most commercially successful records in the group's history, selling about 10 million copies worldwide.

Willie Hightower was born on the 30th day of September in 1940 in Gadsden, Alabama. As a child, he began singing in the church, gravitating toward soul - and Sam Cooke in particular - as he grew older. Impressed, Robinson signed Hightower in 1965. Produced by Billy Lawson, an associate of Claunch, and recorded in Muscle Shoals, Out of the Blue appeared on Ace in 2018.
