Gospel singer. Soprano member of the award-winning Barrett Sisters Trio who electrified audiences worldwide with their powerful gospel harmonies for more than six decades. She started singing at a earlier age in the church and sang with the Roberta Martin singers for 18 years before organizing her Barrett Sisters Trio. In the mid-1960s, the sisters recorded their first album on the Savoy Records, "Jesus Loves Me," on which they recorded Sam Cooke's "Wonderful". They followed with "I'll Fly Away" and "Carry Me Back" where they were joined with Roberta Martin on "I Hear God". During the 1960's, they began appearing on radio and television shows nationwide. New generations discovered the Barrett Sisters when they appeared in the popular 1982 documentary "Say Amen, Somebody." Such was the trio's celebrity that they were the first gospel group to receive a star in the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Throughout their career the Barrett Sisters were associated with numerous celebrities and big names in entertainment including Thomas A. Dorsey , Rev. James Cleveland, Andre Crouch, The Mighty Clouds of Joy, Shirley Caesar, The Winans, Willie Mae Ford Smith and Patti LaBelle. Barrett died at age 85 from a pulmonary embolism. (bio by: Curtis Jackson)
