Dee Dee Sharp
A Night of Musical Celebration, featuring Philly legend, Dee Dee Sharp in Concert.
This night of celebration will feature the “Original Philadelphia Diva” in a One Night Only Concert, performing all of the hits she’s recorded over 5 decades! It is a little known fact that three of her 1962 Smash hits Topped the Billboard Top 10 Singles Charts! Dee Dee is the only female artist in 1962 with 3 Top 10 hits on the Billboard Charts (and one in the top 20, making it a total of 4!). Dee Dee Sharp was one of the early artists with Cameo Records in the 1960's and with P.I.R in the 1970's put Philadelphia on the Map!
The Philadelphia entertainment industry and her fans, will be celebrating with her in concert on November 18th, at World Cafe Live Philadelphia 3025 Walnut Street, Philadelphia, PA, 19104. She will be singing all of her greatest hits including "Mashed Potatoes," "Gravy", "Ride" and many, many more.
Dee Dee Sharp’s hit "Mashed Potatoes” was a no.2 smash hit in 1962, her first record for the Cameo/Parkway label. Living in Philadelphia, the home of Dick Clark's American Bandstand boosted her career. She was a favorite of Clarks and she appeared on the syndicated teen dance show many times from 1962 to 1981. The first black female teen idol, Sharp also became a fixture on Clark's Caravan of Stars tours, and a familiar face in the popular “16 Magazine”. Many of her records can be found under the name Dee Dee Sharp-Gamble. She married record mogul Kenny Gamble in 1967 and began a slew of recordings on Philadelphia International Records in the 70’s & 80’s that produced some incredible R&B hits. The couple divorced and Ms. Sharp is now married to Attorney, Bill Witherspoon.
At PIR, Dee Dee's career went through a renaissance, releasing three albums for the label and it's subsidiaries. Her number 1 release happened in the early 80’s with “Breaking and Entering/Easy Money”. It reached number one on the dance charts in 1981.
