The New York Times raved . . . “Darlene Love’s thunderbolt voice is as embedded in the history of rock and roll as Eric Clapton’s guitar or Bob Dylan’s lyrics.”

At the Academy Awards in 2014 Darlene sang her powerful acceptance speech on behalf of all of the performers in the winning film for Best Documentary, Twenty Feet From Stardom. As she raised the Oscar, the entire house stood with a cheering ovation lead by the wildly applauding Bill Murray. It was another special moment in a great career. A Grammy award soon followed for the soundtrack of the film.
Since the early sixties, as part of Phil Spector’s wall of sound hit factory, this great lady has done it all . . . from major motion pictures like the highly successful Lethal Weapon series to Broadway hits like Hairspray and Grease. She even starred as herself in Leader Of The Pack, credited as Broadway’s first “jukebox musical.” Darlene has appeared on numerous television programs, running the gamut from her weekly appearances on Shindig to a recent guest spot on the PBS special entitled Women Who Rock. An autobiographical film is currently on the drawing board and another recent film that prominently features Darlene just landed a distribution deal at the Sundance Festival.
Darlene’s background vocals for The Blossoms, The Crystals, The Righteous Brothers, Dionne Warwick, Marvin Gaye, and Elvis Presley (to name but a few) set the stage for her emergence as a star in her own right.
Her Billboard hits include: “He’s A Rebel,” “The Boy I’m Gonna Marry,” “Wait ‘Til My Bobby Gets Home,” “He’s Sure the Boy I Love” and the #1 holiday classic “Christmas Baby Please Come Home,” a song that she performed annually with Paul Shaffer and the CBS Symphony Orchestra on The Late Show With David Letterman for some 29 years before David retired. Her last performance of “Christmas Baby Please Come Home” on the show was on December 19, 2014.
Darlene Love received her industry’s highest award when Better Midler, a great fan of her work, inducted her into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2010. During the celebration, the two ladies enjoyed performing “He’s A Rebel” together. As part of the festivities, Darlene also sang “He’s A Fine, Fine Boy” backed by another distinguished fan, Bruce Springsteen.
