Rare Soul Singers With Famous Relations

Hi there,

i have a favourite search on Ebay for Chris Calloway, as i'm trying to get hold of her single You're Something Else on Cub, and the search threw up a live album. The description states that she is (if it's the same singer)? actually the daughter of the famous jazz/scat singer Cab Calloway (the one that featured in the excellent Blues Brothers film).

Anyone know of any other singers with famous relations?

cheers,

Carl :P

I'm not sure but I think Jimmy and David Ruffin were related!

Cissy Houston...aunt of the more famous Whitney. (And I believe also related to Dionne Warwick).

Cissy is Whitney's mum and Dionne and Dee Dee Warwick are Whitney's cousins

Cissy's birth name is Emily Drinkard

Jean Terrell of the Supremes is the sister of heavyweight boxer Ernie Terrell

There are some more that escape me at the moment

Gloria Jones married to Marc Bolan, had son Rolan Bolan. :P

It was Gloria that was driving the Mini. Was arrested and then cleared.

Of course Chuck Jackson is Jesse Jackson's brother

Lenny

But no relation to The Jackson 5 :P

Also forgot to add Aretha and Erma Franklin.

The Chuck Jackson who is Ann Sexton's cousin is the guy who was in the Independents with Maurice jackson rather than the famed artist on Wand, Motown etc.
