She is a very talented lady.. Lennon sure had a eye on her on their tour together with the Beatles !!! LOL

My favorite song is Put a "Little Love in Your Heart".. Produced an By Sam Russel Aka Sam Mc Whorter and he did the piano..Sam is a great writer ,musicain and producer.He also work with Little Richard and Donovan to name a few...
That was one heck of a team.. Great production great tunes....

She might get inducted in the Non-Performers category because she had more success writing for other artists. Jackie DeShannon is nominated for the 2010 Songwriters Hall of Fame in the non-performers category.
