Her Husband, Ronald Isley

A name synonymous with soulful vocals and timeless RnB, Ronald Isley has made American music history with his career spanning seven decades as lead singer and founding member of the Isley Brothers.

Born in Cincinnati, Ohio in 1941, Isley began playing early. Raised by a musical family – his father was a singer and his mother a church pianist – he and his brothers Rudolph, O ‘Kelly Jr, Marvin, and Ernie were surrounded by music. Their first performances usually had their accompanying mother playing a tune that would become a lifelong passion.

The formal schooling was secondary to their musical endeavors. The Isley Brothers began performing gospel music as teens on the local circuit. In the late 1950s they signed with RCA Records and went doo-wop, scoring such hits as “Shout” and “Twist and Shout”. This early success showed Ronald’s powerful vocals as well as the group’s ability to reach audiences across genres.

Through The 1960s, the Isley Brothers continued to evolve. They signed to Motown Records and released hits like “This Old Heart (Keeps on Beating for You)” and “Behind a Painted Smile.” But they left Motown in 1969 for their own label T-Neck Records.

The 1970s marked another turning point. Adding brothers Ernie and Marvin, and brother in law Chris Jasper, the group embraced funk and rock&roll. This reorientation produced albums like “3 + 3” and “Harvest for the World,” with hits like “Love the One You’re With” and “That Lady.” Ronald also developed a new stage persona – he became nicknamed “Mr. Biggs” – a stage persona that only strengthened his star power.

The Isley Brothers remained successful into the 1980s and 1990s through collaborations with artists like R. Kelly. But the group had internal struggles – and some members left. Ronald and Ernie eventually found renewed success in the late 1990s and early 2000s with albums like Mission to Please and Eternal.

Estimates vary but Ronald Isley is believed to be worth tens of millions of dollars. But his wealth is in the musical legacy he has created. The Isley Brothers are members of the Rock&Roll Hall of Fame and the National Rhythm n Blues Hall of Fame.

Ronald Isley has had three marriages. He is currently married to singer Kandy Johnson Isley with whom he has a son.
