A chief throat in Phil Spector’s ’60s singles factory, Darlene Love was often assigned to the producer’s second-best material—yet singing on “Da Doo Ron Ron” and “He’s a Rebel” is something like driving a Bentley instead of a Rolls. Most recently, she’s been on Broadway in Hairspray. The woman brings down the house with her singing. Expect hits.
