Doris Pearson, the eldest of the three Pearson sisters, was mainly known as choreographer of the group, teaching the other members of Five Star the dance routines to their hits. She, like the other members, sang backing vocals and wrote songs for Five Star albums. . She was often the most shy and giggly member of the group in interviews, and was well known by fans to have a crush on Michael Jackson, with whom she wanted to do a 'dance routine together - on our wedding day' (Five Star Crunchie Tour Souvenir Booklet 1986).
Her most notable input to a Five Star project came in 1990 when Doris took lead vocal for the first time on a UKsingle, "Treat Me Like A Lady" and again on its follow-up "Hot Love". Pearson also wrote and sang a third track "That's the Way I Like It", which followed the usual Five Star song format.
The final time Doris appeared as lead vocalist for Five Star was on the Heart and Soul project, released in 1995, for which she contributed another three tracks. "I Give, You Give", notably the most upbeat of the three, was released as a single in that year, and reissued in 1996 as a clubremix.
