Darlene Love, an American popular music singer and actress, gained prominence in the 1960's for the song "He's a Rebel", a #1 American single in 1962, and was part of the Phil Spector stable that produced a celebrated Christmas album in 1963. She was inducted in the Rock n' Roll Hall of Fame in 2011. "Darlene Love's thunderbolt voice is as embedded in the history of Rock-and-Roll as Eric Clapton's guitar or Bob Dylan's lyrics, quotes the New York Times. The press has also said "Darlene Love and Tina Turner are two of the hardest-working women in show business." Loved and respected by her peers" "Darlene Love remains, even after all these years, one of the greatest voices in all of pop music. The thrill of listening to her live has not diminished one iota, and whenever I get the chance to hear her work, I run! A great interpreter, flawless intonation, she is as musical as it gets. I love, Love!" says Bette Midler.
