Summary:R& B singer Rosalind Holmes was born on September 2, 1943 in Detroit, Michigan. As a child, Holmes sang in church choirs and learned how to dance in local community centers. In 1957, Holmes auditioned for Edward "Pops" Larkins at the local YWCA in Detroit. Holmes, along with Annette Beard, Gloria Williamson, and Martha Reeves, became the Del-Phi's. In September 1963, Motown president Berry Gordy signed the group to the label as Martha and the Vandellas. Just one year later, Come and Get These Memories became the Vandellas' first hit single. It was soon followed by (Love Is Like a) Heat Wave in 1963, Dancing in the Street in 1964, Nowhere to Run in 1965, and Jimmy Mack in 1967. In 1968, Holmes left Martha and the Vandellas, married, and began a career with the local Detroit telephone company. In 1995, Holmes was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.
