(The Marvellettes)

The Marvelettes, Gladys Horton, Katherine Anderson (now Schaffner), Georgeanna Tillman (later Gordon), Juanita Cowart (now Cowart Motley), and Georgia Dobbins were a group who gained popularity in the mid-1960s. Wanda Young (now Rogers) replaced Georgia Dobbins prior to the group signing their first deal. Their hit, “Please Mr. Postman”, was the first number one record on Motown Records and they were also the first all-girl group to do it. In 2005, two of the group’s most successful recordings, “Please Mr. Postman” and “Don’t Mess with Bill” earned million-selling Gold singles from the RIAA.
