Career

In 1962 she began a string of successful Billboard Hot 100 Top 10 hits: “Slow Twistin'” (with Chubby Checker) (#3) for which she was uncredited on the label, “Mashed Potato Time” (#2), “Gravy (For My Mashed Potatoes)” (#9), “Ride” (#5) and “Do the Bird” (#10).[1] Both “Mashed Potato Time” and “Ride” each sold over one million copies, and were awarded gold discs.[2] “Do the Bird” provided her only entry in the UK Singles Chart, where it peaked at #46 in April 1963.[3] In 1967, she married record producer and Philadelphia International co-founder Kenny Gamble and has since recorded under the name Dee Dee Sharp-Gamble. The couple later divorced in 1980.[1]
