Born in Delaware , he moved to Philadelphia at the age of 7 and began his formal musical development by entering a school for young drummers. After learning to read and write drum music, at age 13 Ted began to learn piano. At age 16 he recorded his first record while he performed with a group called The Topics. At age 20, Randy Cain of The Delfonics, known best for "Didn't I Blow Your Mind," took Mills to the offices of WMOT Productions so he could become a staff songwriter.
Ted was later introduced to Gamble & Huff, Norman Harris and Linda Creed. Shortly after, Ted received additional musical training from the Musical master Tom Bell.
With the help of Norman Harris Ted produced his first Gold record “Spell on my Mind.”
After recording six other songs for that project, the Topics recording group was replaced by the members of the Shaded of Love group. When the production was complete BLUE MAGIC was born. Ted recorded 10 projects with BLUE MAGIC; he also recorded with The ROLLING STONES and members of EARTH WIND & FIRE. From back then till today, from a smooth harmony soul perspective, when the smoke clears, Ted Wizard is still one of the best Tenors in the world
