Esther Navarro

Profile:
Talent agent/manager and Songwriter, primarily for The Cadillacs and other doo-wop groups in the mid-1950s to early-1960s. Songs like "Gloria" and "Speedoo" were destined to become doo-wop standards and favorites of street-corner groups, and were instrumental in attracting white audiences to black rock and roll performers.
