Shirley Owens Singer (The Shirelles)

Post by caappy » Thu Apr 19, 2018 11:06 am

Shirley Alston Reeves (born June 10, 1941, Henderson, North Carolina), better known professionally as Shirley Owens, is an American soul singer who was the main lead singer of the hit female singing group the Shirelles. In addition to Owens, the Shirelles consisted of classmates of hers from Passaic High School, New Jersey: Doris Kenner Jackson, Addie "Micki" Harris and Beverly Lee. Through marriages, she became Shirley Alston and later, Shirley Alston Reeves. Her strong, distinctive voice meant that she was the natural choice for their main lead singer, though Jackson was also featured as lead on several songs as well. Her nephew, Gerald Alston is the lead singer of The Manhattans.

The Shirelles were the first all female group to have Number 1 hit record with "Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow".

Reeves enjoyed a string of hits with the Shirelles throughout the 1960s. She left the Shirelles in 1975 to begin a solo career, initially recording under the name "Lady Rose".

The Shirelles were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1996. She also performed on the Doo Wop 51 PBS special in 2000, and continues to tour under the name 'Shirley Alston Reeves and her Shirelles'.
