Hi again, Fayette (Pickney) :-) !
I believe "Marjorie" is the same artist as Margie Joseph (?).
I likes all the little I knows, with Blue Magic and also as a solo act, "Prophesy" (very Philly Sound flavoured!).
About pianist Patrice Rushen also I don't knows what makes at the present day, but I got a germany funk compilation from year 2001 and she appears in a pick jointly with the compilator (a editor of Jazz reviews called Michael Möhring), and seams as she was involved in some aspect with this project (??). She appears also in the "special thanks" list in the credits and the track by Patrice ("Let There Be Funk") is the same title of the CD compilation.
The last i knows by Evelin "Champagne" King is she was in the great chorus of the O'Jays "Emmotionally Yours" (with Phyllis Hyman, and many others). But that was in 1991!!
Peace & Soul Food

(1) Patrice is still around & still got her chops. I saw her a few months ago doing a straight ahead jazz set with Arturo Sandoval & Ndugu...and they also backed up T.C. Carson (Kyle from "Living Single") during his short set. She's also active with many of the awards shows in various musical capacities
(2) Stacy Lattisaw is married and in the ministry now.

I caught Evelyn King in concert a couple of years ago. She travels with a very small group of handlers now compared to the 80's. I saw her in a small supper club in San Diego. Her husband was with her as well but I don't remember his name. I think she said he was her manager.
Even though she sang with tracks, what a performance. Her voice was still as strong as ever and she danced up a storm.
The crowd was all into her...
