Fayle Tuell, c.1925, New Jersey, USA. Adams exploded onto the R&B scene in the early 50s with a series of gospel-infused hits that foreshadowed soul music. She began her career in gospel at the age of five when she and her siblings formed a group called the Tuell Sisters. She joined the Joe Morris Orchestra in 1952, and as part of that organization recorded the three songs that established her name in the R&B world, ‘Shake A Hand’ (number 1 R&B, number 22 pop), ‘I’ll Be True’ (number 1 R&B) and ‘Hurts Me To My Heart’ (number 1 R&B). Her last chart record was ‘Keeper Of My Heart’ in 1957. Adams later returned to the church, abandoning her R&B career.
