RIP Dorothy Jones

I'm a little late in finding this out, but Dorothy Jones from The Cookies passed away in December. The Cookies were a great 50's/60's girl group. Some members were also in The Raelettes who sang back up for Ray Charles (they also sang and recorded back ups for LaVern Baker, Ruth Brown, Little Eva and Carole King as well as early Neil Sedaka and Tony Orlando songs). The Cookies made their debut by entering an amateur night at The Apollo theater and won! They released a handful of 45's and LPs and eventually broke up in 1967. Below are their two biggest hits:
