Tha Chantels

The Chantels were an R&B vocal group from The Bronx, New York. Arlene Smith, Sonia Gorin, Rene Minus, Jackie Landry and Lois Harris formed their group while in high school. They chose their name from a rival high school, St. Francis de Chantelle. Their manager, Richard Barrett, who was a singer as well, also discovered Little Anthony & The Imperials, Frankie Lymon & The Teenagers and The Isley Brothers. He signed The Chantels to a record contract with Gone/End Records.

Between 1957 and 1963, they scored 8 singles on the charts, and although none of them reached the Top Ten, a couple of them have become timeless and this week on Voice Your Choice we feature those two classics.
