The group was formed by Millie Jackson, because she knew and respected the talent of each individual. Miss Jackson, who is their producer and manager, said, „They were all friends of mine and they all wanted to record, and not having the time to produce them all individually, I put them all in one group. They all were single artists and the only thing I was worried about was what they would be as a group, and how to combine that much talent.“ To explain what she meant…

As a group, they were first recorded under the name The Gospel Truth. Their first record under that name was „Up Hill Peace of Mind“. A good song but most people thought they were a gospel group. Since the name was so confusing, their manager changed their name to The Facts of Life. Their next record, „Caught In the Act“, was not a smash hit but it really introduced the group to the music industry.
