Otis Williams born June 2, , in Cincinnati , Ohio attended Withrow High School in Cincinnati, and in joined an existing singing group in the school when one of its members was sick. Nathan only wanted to sign Williams, but Williams insisted on taking the rest of the group along. They signed immediately to a subsidiary label , Rockin' Records, based in Florida and owned by Henry Stone later of TK Records , with Williams giving up a sports career to pursue singing instead. As a condition of their signing, Nathan required that The Charms pull out of The Minstrels, and so they did not appear in the subsequent 5 performances of the production. The Charms' first record in June , "Heaven Only Knows", was not a hit , and after a couple more releases they moved to another King subsidiary label, De Luxe Records , also run by Stone.
