Their most popular song, "16 Candles", rose to #2 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in 1959, selling over one million copies, earning a gold disc. The interracial group had three African American members (one female), one Puerto Rican, and one Italian American.

The group had several Top 40 hits in the late 1950s and early 1960s on Coed Records, including the #2 hitЧитать далее в Википедии...
