"This I Swear" released in May 1959 was The Skyliners' second hit record, reaching #26 on Billboard Hot 100 and #20 on the R&B chart. The music was written by lead singer Jimmy Beaumont and the lyrics by Joseph Rock.
The Skyliners are an American doo-wop group from Pittsburgh, fronted by Jimmy Beaumont. The original line-up included Wally Lester, Jack Taylor, Joe Verscharen, and Janet Vogel. This quintet constituted the formal group of vocalists.
In fact, the artist/management relationship between Beaumont/SKYLINERS/Rock is the second longest such relationship in the entertainment industry. These 40 plus years in which so many "firsts" and "exclusives" became part of the story and history of one of the greatest lead singers and most admired and accomplished vocal groups in pop music, prompted music and entertainment writer Joseph Sasfy of the Washington Post to call them, "possibly the greatest tight vocal harmony group of all time".
