Beverly Ross is most famous for writing classic hit songs such as: Lollipop (with Julius Dixon), Judy’s Turn to Cry (with Edna Lewis) and Dim Dim the Lights (with Julius Dixon), hailed by Alan Freed, the DJ who coined the name “Rock N’ Roll” as “the grand daddy song of Rock n’ Roll.”

Beverly’s music is historically and culturally significant because of her early collaborations that helped define the musical genre of Rock ‘N Roll, and her fearless irreverence for commonly held ideas of race roles in the 1950s and ‘60s. 

Beverly continues to be an innovator in the field of music with her current projects: writer of musical theatre masterpiece, City of Light, independent record company creator, Lollipop Kid Records, and forthcoming book:

I Was the First Woman Phil Spector Killed.
