The Ronettes - Voice Your Choice

The Ronettes were one of the Girl Groups from the Rock and Roll Era of the early 1960s. These New Yorkers were Veronica Bennett (Ronnie Spector), her sister Estelle Bennett Vann, and cousin Nedra Tally Ross. These girls started singing together in high school as the Darling Sisters in 1958.

In 1962 they started doing background vocal session work for Phil Spector and in 1963 they went from background singers to the featured singers. Be My Baby was their first smash hit in 1963 and for the next six years, they had several hits songs on the Billboard charts. Veronica was married to Phil Spector from 1968 to 1974.

Treasure Island Oldies is pleased to present the Ronettes on Voice Your Choice. Cast your vote at the Voice Your Choice page for either The Best part Of Breaking Up or Do I Love You. I'll play the winner on next week's show.
