If one was cutting a soul, R&B, pop, rock, or girl group record in New York in the ’60s and needed female backup vocals, chances are they’d try to get the Sweet Inspirations first. The group found their way onto numerous recordings, including hits by the Drifters, Van Morrison, Wilson Pickett, Solomon Burke, Garnett Mimms, and most famously, Aretha Franklin (with whom they sometimes toured). The group evolved from the ’50s gospel group the Drinkard Singers. By the time they began to record on their own in 1967, their leader was Cissy Houston (mother of Whitney), and the women were renamed the Sweet Inspirations.

The Sweet inspirations were an American gospel/R&B girl group founded by Emily "Cissy" Houston, mother of the late Whitney Houston. The lineup was completed by Estelle Brown, Sylvia Shemwell and Myrna Smith. Sylvia Shinwell was the sister of Judy Clay of "Private Number" fame. ) This was The Sweet Inspirations only Top 40 hit under their own name.
