James Ingram and Michael McDonald

"Yah Mo B There" is an R&B song by American singers James Ingram and Michael McDonald. It was written by Ingram, McDonald, Rod Temperton, and producer Quincy Jones. The song originally appeared on Ingram's 1983 album It's Your Night, released on Jones's Qwest Records label. It was released as a single in late 1983, peaking at #19 on the U.S. charts in 1984, and #44 on the UK charts also in 1984, (the re-mix hit #12 in the Spring of 1985 in the UK), and has subsequently appeared on several of Ingram and McDonald's greatest hits albums as well as various 1980s compilation albums. A remixed version by John 'Jellybean' Benitez was also available on both 7 and 12" format.

The performance earned the duo a 1985 Grammy Award for Best R&B Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal. It was one of a series of very successful duets involving Ingram.

James is one of the very few music artists in history to win a Grammy award without being given credit to a single album.
James once sold each of his early songs for fifty dollars each just to get by.
James has been notoriously reluctant to reveal his age as he never has given his birth year.
