For Ronnie Spector, it's the latest highlight in a current stretch described by People Magazine as a 'Victory Lap' for'The Original Rock Queen.' In addition to the 'LOVE POWER' single release and collaboration with Emmy and multi-Grammy Award winning Walden, Spector's busy summer has included a commanding performance at Lincoln Center, her first tour dates as Ronnie Spector and The Ronettes since the 1970s, an appearance on FOX-TV's Good Day New York, and more. Billboard Magazine selected 'Be My Baby' as their Number One Greatest Girl Group Song of All Time, and NPR included Spector's 1964 debut at #20 on their 150 Greatest Albums of the Rock Era,Made by Female Artists.
As a seminal force in Sixties Rock, Spector's swagger, moxie and trademark voice (still instantly recognizable from the first note,) defined an era. Now in her sixth decade as a performer, Spector has reached a new level of cultural significance. Critical respect is at its peak, and she continues to thrill -- inspiring and empowering a new generation of fans as an enduring, transcendent figure, who has overcome adversity to build a career that is nothing short of remarkable. Much as B.B. King came to embody the blues, or Chuck Berry was to early Rock 'n Roll, Spector has solidified her status as the Rosetta Stone for female rock performers of today.
