Doris Troy was born in the Bronx, the daughter of a Pentecostal minister.
Wiki says she worked with the Drifters, Cissy Houston and Dionne Warwick before she co-wrote and recorded "Just One Look”.
That hit #3 on the R&B and #10 on the US Billboard Hot 100 in 1963.
That was huge. She took off.
She was signed by the Beatles that next year.
She sang behind them everywhere in those years, then the Rolllng stones, then Pink Floyd and practically everyone else.
Emphysema took her at 67.
But if you need a sing-along, feel-good soul song,
this could be it.
