Kim Weston is known for her powerful and dynamic vocals. She preferred nightclub ballads, yet on Motown she created uptempo tunes.
Born Agatha Natalie Weston, her career began in the church before signing with Motown in the very early days of the label. She recorded her first moderate hit in 1963, "Love Me All The Way". She followed up with her first duet with Marvin Gaye in 1965 with "What Good Am I Without You". This duet is what Kim is most known for by masses of fans. She did, however, release her biggest solo hit in 1965 "Take Me In Your Arms (Rock Me A Little While)" followed by "Helpless" in 1966.
Next she recorded as a duet with Marvin once again. This time, the duet released an album with the most notable and biggest hit, the R&B smash, "It Takes Two". By the time of its release in 1967, Kim, who had married Motown Artist and Repertoire director, William "Mickey" Stevenson- also known as a skilled and successful songwriter and producer at the label, had left the label following MGM's offer to Mickey to head up their Venture Records subsidiary. By that time both had left their marks at the label with Kim leaving a legacy of hits which gained more appreciation following her departure from label.
