The Fultz Quads were very talented musicians. They could sing and play various instruments. They were enrolled at Bethune-Cookman College for two years to study music, but ended up leaving. In a 1968 article in Ebony magazine, the quads were working on an act to perform if they broke into showbusiness or played in a nightclub.

The Fultz Quads were the first set of black quadruplets. Born on May 23, 1946, they lived in North Carolina, and were adopted by the nurse provided by Pet Milk in 1956. They debuted at the Zeta Phi Beta sorority ball, and eventually became models.

The Fultz quads at 22 in 1968. This picture appeared in an article in Ebony Magazine, which reported on how they were doing. They were each working at factory jobs, and at the time the article was printed, wanted to go into show business as a singing/instrumental sister act.
