From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Felice Taylor (born January 29, 1948, Richmond, California, United States) is an African American singer best known for her recordings in the late 1960s.

Life and career

Taylor began singing with her sisters Norma and Darlene in a trio, The Sweets, who recorded one single, "The Richest Girl", for the Valiant label in 1965. She then recorded "Think About Me", as Florian Taylor, on the Groovy label. Her greatest success came after signing for Bob Keane's Mustang label, a subsidiary of Bronco Records. There she was teamed with the songwriter and record producer, Barry White, who co-wrote "It May Be Winter Outside (But In My Heart It's Spring)", a minor hit reaching #42 on the Billboard Hot 100 and #44 on the R&B chart in early 1967, and its follow-up "I'm Under The Influence Of Love". A third single, "I Feel Love Comin' On", also written and produced by White, was not released in the U.S., but reached #11 in the UK Singles Chart when leased to President Records later in 1967.[1]

After leaving Bronco, Taylor recorded for Kent Records, and later in the UK with members of The Equals. In 1973, White's protegées Love Unlimited recorded new versions of "It May Be Winter Outside" and "Under the Influence of Love". Taylor herself seems not to have recorded since the early 1970s.
