Dee Dee became ‘contractor’ for the group, then called ‘Dee Dee’s Girls’. “Once I had half of the group at one place and half at another doing two different dates I had booked for the same time. It came out all right. I was with one and Cissy Houston was with the other, but I decided to give it up rather than mess it up, you know.”

H: So who was all the background singers at that time? It was you
D: Well, it was me, Dionne, Myrna Smith, Estelle Brown and Sylvia Shemwell. Basically, that was the group.
H: And singing, what sort of, what is a background singer?
D: Background singers supply a feel or a lick, you know. A lick is like (singing), you know, we support the lead singer. And the lead singer can respond off of us. So, we fill in where the gaps are, backing them up (laughter).
H: So you’re at Savoy, and you’re doing a lot of backup work. About what year did it really take off for you?
D: Sixty-one (1961), ’61 (1961) or ’62 (1962), somewhere in there.
