The Platters, a groundbreaking American vocal group from the 1950s, had a unique appeal that attracted both teenagers and their parents. Under the guidance of their manager, Buck Ram, the group aimed to achieve a level of fame that surpassed even that of Louis Armstrong. The Platters pioneered the soul ballad genre, though it wasn't recognized as such in their time.

Their lasting influence can be heard in the works of numerous artists, with songs like Michael Jackson's "She's Out of My Life" and the Stylistics' "You Make Me Feel Brand New" potentially never having been recorded if not for the Platters' trailblazing efforts. Iconic artists like Bryan Ferry and Freddie Mercury have covered Platters' classics like "Smoke Gets In Your Eyes" and "The Great Pretender," though the originals remain unmatched. The Platters' influence even inspired the naming of the popular band, the Pretenders.
