Vocalist. She was a member of the 1960s music group The Ronettes. They are best known for the hits "Be My Baby" (1963), "Baby, I Love You" (1964) and "Walking In The Rain" (1964). Along with her younger sister Veronica "Ronnie" Bennett and their cousin Nedra Talley, they began performing in 1959 as The Darling Sisters and later under the name Ronnie and the Relatives. During the early 1960s, they gained recognition performing at the Peppermint Lounge in New York and would tour with the group Joey Dee and the Starlighters. In 1963, now calling themselves The Ronettes and under the guidance of Phil Spector (who later married and divorced Ronnie) they would become a product of his famed "Wall of Sound" music-style. Among their other hits include "(The Best Part Of) Breaking Up" (1964) and "Do I Love You?" (1964). The group disbanded in 1968. They were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2007. (bio by: C.S.)
