Shows, He's the Boy of My Dreams (a song about Stevie Wonder), Stay With Your Own Kind, That's All You Got to Do, & Come Into My Palace (the only song her & her sister, Brenda, sang that was a duet). She then was called in by Hanna-Barbera Prod. to do the singing voice of Valerie Brown, for the background chasing-scenes music in their newest cartoon series "Josie and the Pussycats," which premiered September 12, 1970 on CBS's Saturday line-up.
