Singer. Born Shirley Mae Goodman, she was a singer best known for being a member of the pop duet "Shirley & Lee". In the early 1950s, together with singer Leonard Lee they formed the rhythm-and-blues duo "The Sweethearts Of The Blues" in New Orleans. They began to record for the Aladdin label as "Shirley & Lee", releasing singles to include "I'm Gone" (1952), "Feel So Good" (1955) and their biggest hit, "Let the Good Times Roll" (1956). They continued to record together until 1963, when Leonard began to record songs for Imperial as a solo. Shirley developed an act with Jesse Hill which they called "Shirley & Jesse" and they worked in New Orleans. In 1975, she recorded the song "Shame, Shame, Shame" with a group of studio musicians which was released on the Vibration label as "Shirley & Company". Later she became a social worker in Los Angeles, California, until her death from a heart attack at age 40. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
