    Tell us who your famous family member is?
    Valerie Jones is my mother. She was a member of The Jones Girls.
    17 April 1956- December 2, 2001). Valorie , born April  was the youngest sister of The Jones Girls (Shirley, Brenda). The Jones Girls were hits in the discos that were all the rage in the late '70s and are best known for their hit songs " You Gonna' Make Me Love Somebody Else" and "Nights Over Egypt.". As much as she loved performing, off stage, she was a perpetual student who loved to learn, studying everything from foreign languages to law and politics.But her best role wasn't sister, singer or student. It was mother, and she would pour her love and attention on her son, Phelton. All her skills came together in one perfect role. Her love escalated with him. The songs she wrote to soothe him, were sweeter than any song she ever sang. And the perpetual student became a teacher, helping Phelton to discover and hone his musical talents. It's no mistaking that her legacy lives on in him. 
    The Jones Girls had originally been trained to sing in churches under guidance from their mother, a professional gospel singer named Mary Frazier Jones, who apparently was one of the first artists in the gospel genre to be recorded by RCA. Associates of the mother have recalled the girls being put to use as harmony singers when they were quite little, and being very good at it. The group not only recorded four albums on its own for the Philadelphia International label but also provided background vocals for many Motown artists.Manager Dick Scott developed an interest in the sisters after they switched over to secular music, and the trio began performing as an opener for Detroit stars such as the Four Tops. Diana Ross eventually provided larger exposure for the group by giving the sisters a featured portion within her own stage show. Between the late '70s and early '80s the group scored its string of hits before finally fizzling out into a combination of early retirement and solo careers. In the late '90s a resurgence of interest in the Philly soul sound was the motivation for getting the Jones Girls back in action.

    Valerie Jones died in Detroit on December 2, 2001, at the age of 45.
