Vicki Anderson

Real Name:
Myra Barnes
Profile:
Bobby Byrd's Wife. Mother of Carleen Anderson
Released a few titles under her maiden name Myra Barnes

One of James Brown's Soul Sisters. According to Mr. Brown's autobiography, Vicki Anderson was the best female singer he had in his revue. She Joined Brown in 1965 replacing Anna King and she held her position there until she was replaced by Marva Whitney 3 years after in 1968. But she re-joined after Marva departed in 1969 for further three years until Lyn Collins took over. She disapeared after she left Brown for a while and resurfaced in 1975 with a single, featuring a cover of Rufus & Chaka Khan Hit Once You Get Started and Bobby Womack's Stop On By on Browns I-Dentify label, but this single failed to do any damage, and after this, Vicki never showed any signs to do studio work but she was regulary appearing in James Brown Funky People revue in the late 80s, and again with Bobby Byrd in the early 90s.

But then in 1994 she returned to the studio, recording Gil Scott Herons classic Home Is Where The Hatred Is with Bossa Nostra and it did very well. Today she sometimes does live shows around US and UK.
