Earl-Jean "Jeanie" Reavis (born 1942) is an American former pop and R&B singer who was a member of vocal group, the Cookies. Credited as Earl-Jean, she had a solo hit with the original version of "I'm Into Somethin' Good", written by Gerry Goffin and Carole King, and later a bigger hit for Herman's Hermits.
She was born Earl-Jean McCrea in Brooklyn, New York, but lived with her family in North Carolina from the age of two. They returned to live in Coney Island when Jeanie was a young teenager, and she attended Lincoln High School. In 1960, she married Grant Reavis, and had a child.
Her older sister, Darlene McCrea, and the other original members of the Cookies - a group first formed in 1954 - eventually evolved into Ray Charles' backing group, the Raelettes. In 1961, Earl-Jean (who was usually known informally as Jeanie) was persuaded to join a new version of the Cookies. The group was signed to Goffin and King's Dimension record label in 1962,Читать далее в Википедии...
