Home Music RIP Inez Foxx, 79, Famed R&B Singer of the Original “Mockingbird”

Inez Foxx has died at the age of 79. She and her brother, Charlie, had a bunch of classic hit in the early 60s including “Mockingbird.” Carly Simon and James Taylor revived it in 1974 with a cover hit of their own.

Inez was married to legendary producer Luther Dixon of Sceptre Records fame (his partner was the famous Florence Greenberg).

They divorced but not before writing a big hit for the Shirelles, “

I Love You 1000 Times.”

God speed, Inez. The history of R&B wouldn’t be the same without you.
