Event Description
Shirley Jones of The Jones Girls

In 1979 The Jones Girls “You Gonna Make Me Love Somebody Else” showed Gamble and Huff still had the magic touch. The classic went top ten on Billboards’ R&B and Disco Charts.


Lead singer Shirley Jones and sisters Brenda and Valorie signed with Philadelphia International Records, as teenagers and traveled the world for several years with fellow Detroiter Diana Ross as her backup singers. Ms. Ross even let the girls shine with their own spot where they sang “If I Ever Lose This Heaven”. Diana Ross told Gamble and Huff that The Jones Girls were too good to be anybody’s back-up singers forever.

In 1985 Shirley launched her solo career and in 1986 her Debut album “Always In The Mood” proved she could handle the spotlight alone. Her 1986 classic “Do You Get Enough Love” stayed number one on
Billboards R&B Chart for Three weeks!!!


Shirley has already hit the stage again touring with The O’Jays in 2011. Shirleys New Album My Time To Shine was released in October of 2015, It contains a duet with the late, great Mel Waiters and a remake of I’m At Your Mercy, a Jones Girls classic. July 1st 2017 Shirley performed at Essence Festival with Mary J. Blige, Chaka Khan, Lalah Hathaway and other artists for Marys Strength of a Woman Night.


Shirley will surely entertain you at the St. James Live Old school style with sass, class and superb musicianship. Take a trip down memory lane with Shirley and the songs she and her sisters made famous, a time of Love and
just pure fun.
