Vocalist
    (January 26, 1943- )
    Birth name is Jean Caliste
    Recorded 'Mr. Big Stuff,' 'You Think You're Hot Stuff,' 'Carry On,' 'Do Me,' 'You Got the Papers (but I Got the Man)' and 'My Toot Toot'
    She changed her name because she felt people would find it difficult to pronounce 'Caliste.'
    After her hit 'Mr. Big Stuff' came out she had a disagreement with Stax, her record company, and quit.
    She then bounced around from one small record label to another.
    She went 12 years between recording albums (1985-97).
    When her career didn't take off for her in the 1960's, she had to take a job as a cafeteria worker at Loyola University to make ends meet.
    'Mr. Big Stuff' was a smash hit in 1971, topping Billboard's R&B Single's chart for five weeks and landing #2 on the pop side.
    The hit went double platinum and earned her a Grammy Award nomination.
    She performs in her 60's and did shows with Donna Summer and Gloria Gaynor.
