The Bonnie Sisters were an American pop group from New York.
The three members were all nurses at Bellevue Hospital. After hearing The DeJohn Sisters on the radio, they began singing together at work, calling themselves The Belle Aimes initially.
Follow-up singles “Track That Cat”, “Wandering Heart”, and “Confess” failed to chart, and the group returned to nursing.
The 1990 John Waters movie, Cry-Baby, is named after the group’s lone hit.
