Darlene Love, R&B Icon
In 1962, The Crystals had a number one hit He’s a Rebel, but Darlene Love and the Blossoms were the artists who actually recorded the song. Love and the Blossoms can also be heard on Johnny Rivers’ Poor Side of Town, Ronette’s Be My Baby, and Frank Sinatra’s That’s Life. Love finally got her name on a song when she recorded Christmas, Baby Please Come Home. Love brings her R&B sound to the Newberry Opera House November 7. Tickets $60 – $70.
