American girl group, the first to have a number one single on the Billboard Hot 100.

The members of the quartet were Shirley Owens (the main lead singer; later known as Shirley Alston, then Shirley Alston Reeves), Doris Coley (later known as Doris Kenner, then Doris Jackson; who sang lead on «Dedicated to the One I Love», «Welcome Home Baby», «Blue Holiday» and a number of B-sides and album cuts), Beverly Lee, and Addie Harris.

The quartet formed in New Jersey in 1958, and went on to release a string of hits including «Baby It’s You» (written by Burt Bacharach/Mack David/Barney Williams), «Mama Said», «Foolish Little Girl», and the US #1 Pop hits «Will You Love Me Tomorrow» (Gerry Goffin/Carole King) and «Soldier Boy» (Florence Greenberg/Luther Dixon). The Shirelles were the first major female vocal group of the rock and roll era, preceding Motown as a crossover phenomenon with white audiences.

Inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame in 1996 (Performer).
