History

The group was formed by record producer / composer, Tony Hiller, and originally featured the well-travelled vocalist, Tony Burrows and two female artists known as Sunny and Sue. Sunny had a solo hit in 1974 with "Doctor's Orders" and Sue (Glover) became a well-known session singer. Sunny and Sue provided backing vocals for both UK entrants Lulu and Vikki (Watson) at the Eurovision Song Contest in 1969 and 1985 respectively, as well as German entrant Joy Fleming (alongside Madeleine Bell of Blue Mink) in 1975. Sue attempted to represent the UK herself in 1981 with the group Unity, but finished last in the UK heat. In 1970 they had a hit single with "United We Stand", which not only was a heavily played record on British radio, but also broke the American market. By the time they broke the voting record for Eurovision and sold well over one million copies of "Save Your Kisses for Me", the line up had totally changed and none of the original group were still with the band. After Eurovision, they had a number of hits in the UK, including two more chart-toppers, but long term success proved to be elusive.

In 1992, Sandra Stevens told Eurovision Network's magazine that Brotherhood of Man had been shortlisted to sing in A Song for Europe 1983. However she said that the group changed its mind, preferring to be remembered for winning the Eurovision Song Contest as opposed to possibly losing a UK qualifying heat. However their song, "When the Kissing Stops" remained in the contest and was performed by another group, Rubic. It came sixth. The Eurovision Network is part of the European Broadcasting Union. ...

The Brotherhood of Man had been disregarded by them and the reaping was bitter indeed.
The Brotherhood of Man ordains that we should desire otherwise; that if we have won a little of spiritual grace for ourselves, then if we would retain that spiritual grace, we must do our best to serve our neighbour, otherwise we are more bound to self than we were in a time before.
By the Brotherhood of Man you can rise superior to everything that life can hold, for forget not that you are brother to the angels as well as to those who seem to have lost every vestige of their Divinity.
GRbro (9025 words)
He defined art in terms of its capacity to arouse the feeling of the Fatherhood of God and the brotherhood of man. [ii] His radical application of the Sermon on the Mount and his critique of luxury and oppression stimulated the idealism of many others throughout the world.
It may be said, then, that in the proclamation of the Fatherhood of God and the brotherhood of man, overemphasis on the connection of advanced religion with advanced civilization obscured the very spiritual equality of men and women which that gospel meant to convey.
When a man who had robbed the company was caught and sentenced, some of the workers told the group that the man had a wife and four children and that they (the workers) wanted to do something for them.
