Veronica Bennett(the future Ronnie Spector), Estelle Bennett, and Nedra Talley began singing together while in Junior High School. They began providing backing vocals for Phil Spector in 1962 and a year later began issuing singles as the Ronettes.
They would place eight singles on the BILLBOARD MAGAZINE Hot 100, 1963-1966, but would disband in 1967. Ronnie would reform the group during the early 1970s with two different singers but then leave for a solo career.
“Is This What I Get For Loving You” was released during May of 1965 as they commericial success was on the wane. It peaked at number 75 during its four weeks on the chart. By this time Ronnie had emerged as the group’s vocal point.
The Ronettes were inducted into The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame in 2007.
