On "The Shoop shoop song" it's Darlene Love and the Blossoms. And on the organ is a young Billy Preston.

Yes, Phil. I'm sorry. I recognise Darlene and the Blossoms on The Shoop Shoop Song (They backed a LOT of folks so well live , didn't they?) I meant on Say A Little Prayer....

If it's a clip of Aretha in a multi colored mini, the backup singers were Carolyn Franklin, Wylene Ivy and Charnessa Butts/Jones.
They toured with Aretha from 1967-1968.

The I SAY A LITTLE PRAYER clip is from a 1970 appearance on the Cliff Richard Show.

I don't know who the backup singers are, but Carolyn isn't one of them. Along with Evelyn and Charnessa, she was a part of the Moniques.

The ladies in this clip are the Sweethearts of Soul, but I don't think they were with her too long. After them, she moved on to her long-running backup singers Margaret, Brenda, and Pat.

Wholeheartedly agree, this is fab Aretha. And it's really unusual to see background singers features to upclose both visually and vocally. And this for a solo artist! The Supremes were a group and too often barely shown or heard :-(

Reese, you are probably right.

I didn't look at the YouTube link provided, so I didn't see exactly which clip was being referred to.

^^The Valley^^ Why does EVERYTHING have to breakdown to what the Supremes did and didn't do? Give it a rest in '09. This thread is about Aretha at her peak, now add something to that!
