The group consisted of lead singer Priscilla Paris; her older sister, Albeth Paris; and their middle sister Sherrell Paris. They reached the peak of their success in October 1961 with the hit single “I Love How You Love Me“, which peaked at #5 on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart,  and sold over one million copies.

Some of the group’s other hit songs include the US Top 40 single – “He Knows I Love Him Too Much”(March,  1962, #34), “All Through The Night” (1961), “Be My Boy” (#56), “Let Me Be The One”(#87), and “Dream Lover” (#91).

The Paris Sisters appeared in the 1962 British rock film It’s Trad, Dad! released in the U.S. as Ring-a-Ding Rhythm and directed by Richard Lester. In the film they performed the Spector produced song “What Am I To Do?”.

Sherrell Paris later served as a production assistant on The Price Is Right, best known as host Bob Barker’s personal assistant, until she was released in 2000. Priscilla died on March 5, 2004, from injuries suffered in a fall at her home. She was 59.
