Marilyn and Billy have been married for 46 years. That’s unheard of in Hollywood where longevity in marriage is scarce.

They were members of the Fifth Dimension — a recording group that started in 1967, and started out as friends whose friendship later evolved into a romance. They married in 1969.

The group sang their way to the top and earned a group star on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame. Billy and Marilyn left the group in 1975 to pursue solo and later duo careers in the entertainment business.

At one point, their careers hit a lull. “That’s when things got a little quiet,” says Marilyn. “I started reflecting on my life, my career and what it all meant and who I was. I began to realize that something was missing in my life.”

A friend had told Marilyn that if she ever felt like there was a void in her life it was the Lord telling her that she needed Him. Marilyn started reading the Bible and prayed to receive Jesus.

One day while driving through Los Angeles, they saw that The Roxy, a famous nightclub in LA, was holding a revival so they went. That night, Billy and Marilyn gave their lives to Jesus.
