Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Merry Clayton (born December 25, 1948, Gert Town, New Orleans, Louisiana) is an American soul and gospel singer (both solo and back-up), and an actress. She has provided a number of back-up vocal tracks to songs recorded by major performing artists during the 1960s, most notably with her duet with Mick Jagger on The Rolling Stones song "Gimme Shelter." Clayton began her recording career in 1962 at the age of fourteen, singing "Who Can I Count On? (When I Can't Count On You)" as a duet with Bobby Darin on his album "You're The Reason I'm Living." A year later, she recorded the first version of "The Shoop Shoop Song (It's in His Kiss)," although it was Betty Everett's version of the same year that reached the top 10 in the Billboard Hot 100.show more
