"If you love The Temptations, The Four Tops, Wilson Pickett, or

Terry Mulligan, MovieTelevision

It's the sixties, and a group of friends who love to sing form a singing group. Through
many efforts, they finally get an audition at Motown and the rest is history.

But the journey is full of its ups and downs, both personally and professionally.
What appears to be a life full of happiness and fame also has its share of
tragedy and sadness.

Based on information provided by The Dells singing group, "The Five Heartbeats"
is full of music and entertainment for all.
