Darlene Love

From her first No. 1 recording, “He’s A Rebel,” through her string of hits with the legendary “Wall of Sound” hit factory (“He’s Sure The Boy I’m Gonna Marry” and “Christmas [Baby Please Come Home”]), to the countless songs she sang backup on for artists like Sam Cooke, Elvis Presley, Dionne Warwick, Cher and Aretha Franklin, Darlene Love is still blazing a trail of success in the music industry. In 2011 she was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Over the course of her career Love has been hailed as the greatest singer in pop music. She has proven herself a talented actress on stage and screen, starring as Danny Glover’s wife in all of the “Lethal Weapon” films and lighting up Broadway in such musicals as “Grease” and the Tony Award-nominated “Leader of the Pack.”

The Shirelles were the first all-girl group of the rock ‘n’ roll era to score a number one record! They are universally credited as the originators of the “Girl Group Sound” that is so beloved by the Baby Boomer generation. Their long string of hits, including “Soldier Boy,” “Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow,” “Dedicated To The One I Love,” “Mama Said” and so many others, have been recorded by hundreds of artists, including The Beatles, Dionne Warwick, Aretha Franklin, Eric Clapton & The Yardbirds, The Mamas & the Papas, Bernadette Peters and Smokey Robinson. Named one of the 100 best acts of all time by “Rolling Stone” in 2004, The Shirelles topped the Billboard Hot 100 with “Will You Love Me Tomorrow.” In recent years, The Shirelles have received the Soul of America Music Award and the Pioneer Award from the Rhythm and Blues Foundation, in addition to their 1996 induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.

“Darlene Love’s thunderbolt voice is as embedded in the history of rock ‘n’ roll as Eric Clapton’s guitar or Bob Dylan’s lyrics.” —The New York Times

“It’s not officially Christmas,” until she sings “Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)” — David Letterman
