The Shirelles formed in 1957 when a group of four teenage classmates entered into their high school talent show. They performed an original song, “I Met Him On A Sunday,” which was a huge success, ranking on Billboard’s Top 100 chart. They went on to record several Billboard Top 20 hits and were named Best Female Vocal Group for five consecutive years by Billboard Magazine. Additionally, the group received the Soul of America Music Award and the Pioneer Award from the Rhythm and Blues Foundation, in addition to their 1996 induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. In 2004, Rolling Stone named The Shirelles one of the 100 best acts of all time, selecting two of their songs, “Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow” and “Tonight’s the Night”, on its list of the greatest songs of all time.
