      ......Shirley
      Alston Reeves.. - ..Lead singer of ..the Shirelles........
      ....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. The Shirelles were discovered and recorded after
      performing in an auditorium program. ....
      ....
      ......It was an exciting time in music. The group came under the wing
      of manager,Florence Greenberg, who also ran the Scepter label. . Their very
      first single release, "I Met Him on A Sunday", which was also written
      by the Shirelles collectively, was an instant success!....
      ......Bridging doo wop and uptown New York pop-soul, the group projected
      a beguiling mixture of tenderness and innocence that was grounded in R&B
      as much as pop/rock. The Shirelles soon became known throughout the world when
      they placed six singles in the Top Ten, and their songs have become classics
      and have since been covered by many artists, including the Mamas and the Papas
      and Dusty Springfield. Manfred Mann had a hit with a cover of the Shirelles'
      song "Sha La La". And the Beatles themselves covered " Baby,
      It's You" as well as the lesser known "Boys".....
      ..
      .. .."Will You
      Still Love Me Tomorrow", (written by Carole King), was featured in the
      colossal hit movie "Dirty Dancing" with Shirley on lead vocal. "Mama
      Said" also led by Ms. Reeves was used in a major promotional campaign for
      Pepto Bismol. She also has a Wendy's commercial in her long list of achievements,
      as well as one of the first Rock n Roll Coca-Cola commercials.....
      ....Ms. Reeves also
      co-starred in the Rock 'n' Roll film with the Shirelles "Let The Good Times
      Roll." All time Shirelle 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". This particular
      song touched so many lives and hearts.....
      ....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. Her show is designed to please even
      the toughest musical appetites!....
      ....So come and enjoy
      a legend in musical history as Shirley Alston Reeves sings personally for you.

      never forget!....
