THE SHIRELLES. Formed in Passaic, New Jersey, in 1958, the Shirelles was one of early rock-and-roll's so-called girl groups. The group consisted of Shirley Alston as lead vocalist, Addie Harris, Doris Kenner, and Beverly Lee. They wrote their own songs, and their first hit, "I Met Him on a Sunday," was released early in 1958. Subsequent Shirelle hits included "Dedicated to the One I Love" (1959), "Tonight's the Night" (1960), "Will You Love Me Tomorrow" (1961), "Mama Said" (1961), "Baby It's You" (1962), "Soldier Boy" (1962), and "Foolish Little Girl" (1963). After "Foolish Little Girl," the Shirelles went into a decline and broke up in the late 1960s.
