Turn on your radio or favorite music device, and you'd be hard pressed not to quickly hear a hit song written by husband and wife team Nickolas Ashford and Valerie Simpson.
Nick and Val have penned some of the best:
- Ain't No Mountain High Enough
- I'm Every Woman
- Reach Out and Touch
- You're All I Need to Get By
- California Soul
The American Society of Composers, Authors, and Publishers (ASCAP) credits an amazing 240 songs to the pair. Just their Motown output would be spectacular enough. When you factor in their own self-authored hits, well this team is one-of-a-kind.
