Doo-wop groups The Capris and The Dells inspired the name of Sarah’s first group, the Del-Capris, which included another Trenton-based singer, Nona Hendryx. When Sarah and Nona teamed with Patricia (Patti) Holte and Cynthia (Cindy) Birdsong of The Ordettes, a new group was born — The Bluebelles. Beginning in 1962, Patti LaBelle & the Bluebelles were among the most dynamic vocal groups of the 1960s, recording for major labels like Cameo-Parkway and Atlantic, touring the Chitlin’ Circuit, and earning rave reviews for their appearances at the Apollo Theater where they were affectionately nicknamed “The Sweethearts of the Apollo.” Beyond the stage, Sarah Dash has lent her time to several prestigious organizations. She’s a member of the Grammy Board of Governors (Philadelphia chapter), serves as the Grammy New Jersey Ambassador for the Advocacy Board of the Membership Committee, and is a member of the Grammy Hall of Fame.
