Gloria Lynne (born Gloria Alleyne on November 23th 1931, in New York City) is an American vocalist on several rhythm and blues hits in the 1950s and 1960s. Lynne grew up in Harlem. Her music career was strenghtened when she won first prize at the "Amateur Night" at the Apollo Theater. She recorded as part of groups The Enchanters and The Dell-Tones in the 1950s.
She recorded as a soloist under her birth name, but most of her work was released under her stage name on the Everest Records and Fontana Records labels. In the 1960s she had several hits, which include: "June Night," "Love I Found You," and "I Wish You Love" (in 1964, which also became her signature song). Lynne then toured with important artists such as Ray Charles, Billy Eckstine and Ella Fitzgerald. Lynne moved into jazz in her later career, and performed with many of the jazz greats, including Quincy Jones, Bobby Timmins, Philly Joe Jones, Harry "Sweets" Edison.
She was given in 1997 a Pioneer Award by the Rhythm and Blues Foundation.. ...show less
