Vocalist
    (July 6, 1942-September 16, 2004)
    Born in Houston, Texas
    One half of the Weather Girls (with Martha Wash)
    Recorded (with Wash) 'Earth Can Be Just Like Heaven,' 'I Got the Feeling,' 'Just Us,' 'It's Raining Men' and 'No One Can Love You More Than Me'
    Died of heart failure in San Leandro, California at age 62
    She tried to hide her true age.
    She was twice married and had 11 children.
    When she and Wash changed record labels, they went from calling themselves Two Tons of Fun to The Weather Girls.
    Not enjoying a successful solo career, she moved to Germany in the early '90s and formed a German version of the Weather Girls with her daughter Dynell.
    The pair competed in the German Final for the 2002 Eurovision Song Contest with the song 'Get Up,' but placed a mere 13th out of 15 German contestants.
    She enjoyed playing bingo, and liked cooking so much she would pack her cooking utensils with her on tour.
    As a child, she was a classically trained pianist and later studied classical music at the San Francisco Conservatory.
    Tapping into her gospel roots, she sang back-up vocals on several songs for Sylvester (along with Wash).
    The Weather Girls reached #1 on Billboard's Hot Dance Club Singles in 1982 for 'It's Raining Men,' and had three other songs on the dance chart reach #2.
    She and Wash parted amicably and kept in touch after her move to Germany.
    Never hung up about her weight, her 1993 debut album with her daughter (also a woman of size) was titled 'Double Tons Of Fun.'
    With her daughter, she scored a #2 Billboard Dance Club single with 'Can U Feel It (Dee Ooh La La La).'
