Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Faye Adams (born Faye Tuell, circa 1923/1925, Newark, New Jersey) is an American vocalist. She was the daughter of David Tuell, a gospel singer and a key figure in the Church of God in Christ (COGIC). At the age of five she joined her sisters to sing spirituals, regularly appearing on Newark radio shows. As Faye Scruggs (her married name), she became a regular performer in New York nightclubs in the late 1940s and early 1950s. While performing in Atlanta, Georgia, she was discovered by singer Ruth Brown, who won her an audition with bandleader Joe Morris of Atlantic Records. Changing her name to Faye Adams, Morris recruited her as a singer in 1952, and signed her to Herald Records. Her first release was Morris's song "Shake a Hand," which topped the U.S. R&B chart for ten weeks in 1953 and made number 22 on the U.S. pop chart.show more
