Tavares (also known as The Tavares Brothers) is an American R&B, funk and soul music group composed of five Cape Verdean-American brothers. Born and raised in Providence, Rhode Island, they would later move to New Bedford, Massachusetts.
Tavares is:
• Butch - Feliciano Tavares, born 18 May 1948.
• Chubby - Antone Lee Tavares, born 2 June 1945.
• Pooch - Arthur Lee Tavares, born 12 November 1943.
• Ralph - Ralph Viera Tavares, born 10 December 1942.
• Tiny - Perry Lee Tavares, born 24 October 1949.

1975 turned out to be their most successful year chartwise, with a Top 40 Pop album (In the City), the No. 25 hit "Remember What I Told You to Forget", and their biggest hit, the Top 10 Pop/No. 1 R&B smash "It Only Takes a Minute", which was later successfully covered by both Jonathan King and Take That, and sampled by Jennifer Lopez. They parlayed this success into a spot as an opening act for The Jackson 5. KC and The Sunshine Band was also on this tour. "Minute" was followed by a string of hits: "Heaven Must Be Missing an Angel" (1976), "Don't Take Away the Music" (1976), and "Whodunit" (1977, another No. 1 R&B hit).
'Heaven Must Be Missing An Angel' was no. 1 in the Netherlands Top 40 in 1976.

This was Tavares' performance at the famous TROS tv-show 'Showbizzquiz' on January 6, 1979

Lyrics:
Heaven must be missin' an angel
Missin' one angel, child, 'cause you're here with me right now
Your love is heavenly, baby
Heavenly to me, baby
Your kiss filled with tenderness
I want all I can get of your sexiness
Showers, your love comes in showers
And every hour of the hour
You let me feel your loving power
There's a rainbow over my shoulder When you came, my cup runneth over
You gave me your heavenly love
And if one night you hear crying from above
It's 'cause heaven must be missin' an angel
Missin' one angel, child, 'cause you're here with me right now
Your love is heavenly, baby
Heavenly to me, baby
Ooh, heaven, heaven
Ooh, heaven, heaven
Ooh, heaven, heaven
Heaven, heaven
OohI'm captured by your spell You're different, girl, I can tell When you're layin' on my pillow, baby
Above your pretty head, there's a halo, that's why I know
Heaven must be missin' an angel Missin' on angel, child, 'cause you're here with me right now (Mmmha)
Your love is heavenly, baby
Heavenly to me, baby (Oohmy sweet little angel)
Heaven (My pretty little angel)
Heaven (I love you, love you, love you, love you, love you, baby, say right now)
Heaven
Heaven (Oohheaven)
Heaven, heaven (Must be missing an angel)
Heaven, heaven (Missing one angel, child, 'cause you're here with me right now)
Heaven, heaven (Oh, my heaven)
Heaven (Missin' an angel)
Heaven
Heaven
You must have slipped away along the Milky Way
It's 'cause your kiss You came C.O.D. on a moonbeam straight to me
Just like showers Your heavenly power gets stronger by the hour
Heaven must be missin' an angel
I'm captured by your spell, oh, girl, can't you tell
Heaven (Heaven) must be missin' an angel
Heaven, heaven (Oohooh)
Heaven, heaven (Oohooh)
Heaven, heaven (Ooh)
Heaven, heaven (Ooh so-so good, so-so good, so-so good, baby, mmm)
(Yeah)
(I love the way you move, I love the way you groove)
(Uh)
(Just like heaven, oh, baby)
(Heaven, yeah)
Heaven, heaven
Heaven, heaven (Ooh, my heaven)
Heaven, heaven (Ooh, your love is so good)
Heaven, heaven (Oh, baby, got to have my love, yeah)
Heaven, heaven (Need it bad, Lord, baby, yeah)
Heaven, heaven (I got to have my love, yeah)
Heaven, heaven
