Khemistry

Khemistry was an R&B trio from Washington, DC that consisted of members Shirl Hayes, Kimus Knight, and Marie Council.
In 1982, Khemistry released their self-titled debut album on Columbia Records which didn't appear to make the charts.
Their only single to chart was "I Got a Feeling" which peaked at #75 on Billboard's Black Singles chart, staying on the chart for 5 weeks.

The follow-up singles "Whatever it Takes" and "I Can't Lose With the Stuff I Use" failed to chart.
Khemistry's last release was the 1985 single, "I Can't Win For Losing" on Mainline Records which failed to chart. After that, it seemed as if Khemistry has faded into obscurity.

Thanks for posting, I wondered about their history. My fave has to be "Can You Feel My Love." The lead singer sounds a lot like Jeffrey Osborne.
