Barbara Harris

An African American R&B singer, best known as a member of the 1960s girl group "The Toys".

Taken from a piano exercise from Bach and put a Motown bassline to it, and "A Lover's Concerto" was born; the song soon rose to number two on the U.S. charts.

Harris joined a group with four other young singers: Barbara Parritt Toomer, June Montiero, Betty Stokes and Betty Blocker.

Stokes and Blocker eventually left the group, while the Harris, Toomer and Montiero formed a trio.

The group became "The Toys" and landed their first recording contract.

Barbara Harris continues to perform at "Oldie Shows" as "The Toys featuring Barbara Harris".
