Summary
Singer and performer Mildred Arbor was born on October 15, 1941 in Mississippi and raised in Kalamazoo, Michigan. She attended Western Michigan University, where she met Bertha McNeal. In 1961, they formed a singing group called the Velvelettes, which included Arbor's younger sister, Carol Street; McNeal's cousin, Norma Fairhurst; and Street's friend, Betty Kelley. The group was signed to Motown Records in late 1962. From 1963 to 1967, the Velvelettes released a number of singles including the charting hits "Needle In A Haystack" and "He Was Really Sayin' Somethin', " and "These Things Will Keep Me Loving You," which became a hit in the United Kingdom. The Velvelettes disbanded in 1969 but reunited in 1984. They recorded the album One Door Closes in 1990, and Motown Records later released three more albums: The Very Best of the Velvelettes (1999), The Velvelettes: The Best Of (2001), and The Velvelettes: The Motown Anthology (2004).
