Shirley Alston Reeves
She was born Shirley Owens in Henderson, North Carolina and moved to Passaic, New Jersey at an early age. While attending Passaic High School, she co-founded The Shirelles and sang lead vocals for the group. Their very first single release “I Met Him on A Sunday”, which was also written by the Shirelles collectively, was an instant success!

The Shirelles soon became known throughout the world when they placed six singles in the Top Ten. “Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow”, (written by Carole King), was featured in the colossal hit movie “Dirty Dancing” with Shirley on lead vocal. Ms. Reeves also co-starred in the Rock ‘n’ Roll film with the Shirelles “Let the Good Times Roll.” All time Shirelles favorites include “Tonight’s The Night” (penned by Ms. Reeves), “Baby It’s You”, the soulful sounding “This Is Dedicated To The One I Love”,” Foolish Little Girl”, and of course, the group’s 5 million selling hit “Soldier Boy”.

1996 Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Famer Shirley Alston Reeves is loved by all who have had the pleasure of meeting and hearing her golden vocals.

So come and enjoy a legend in musical history as Shirley Alston Reeves sings personally for you. The Shirelles, you may remember! Legendary lady Shirley Alston Reeves, you will never forget!
The Crystals
When Phil Spector discovered The Crystals, not one was yet out of high school. Their first recording, There’s No Other (Like My Baby) was also their first hit which catapulted them straight to the “Apollo” theatre. They continued their successful recordings with five more TOP TEN records: Uptown, He’s A Rebel, He’s Sure the Boy I Love, Da Doo Ron Ron, and Then He Kissed Me. Two of the TOP 50 most popular records in the Rock’n Roll Hall of Fame belong to The Crystals. The group has scaled from five members to three. The Crystals now consist of Dee Dee Kenniebrew, who was there from the very first recording, Patricia Pritchett-Lewis and MelSoulTree.
