Robbie Montgomery net worth: Robbie Montgomery is an American businesswoman and former backup singer with an estimated net worth of $19 million dollars. Born in St. Louis, Missouri, Robbie Montgomery first achieved a modicum of fame singing backup for artists such as Tina Turner, The Supremes, Stevie Wonder, and James Brown. However, her lung collapsed and she was forced to leave her singing career behind. She opened a restaurant called, "Sweetie Pie's" in St. Louis, Missouri, serving family soul food recipes that had been passed down for generations. The restaurant became immensely popular, and has since opened two more locations. In October of 2011, the Oprah Winfrey Network began airing a reality series about "Sweetie Pie's" which features Ms. Montgomery, and her son Tim, who is also her business partner. The series follows the family as they prepare to launch their third location, and also touches on their personal lives. Robbie Montgomery is still searching for love at age 71, and her son has recently become a father, and is learning what that means.
The Ikettes were a trio (sometimes quartet) of female backing vocalists for the Ike & Tina Turner Revue, a prominent American rhythm and blues group from the 1960s.
Ike Turner formed the Ikettes to replace the Artettes as the backing group for the Ike & Tina Turner Revue. The Ikettes began recording in 1960, when lead Delores Johnson, Eloise Hester, and Joshie Armstead accompanied Tina Turner on her first recording, "A Fool in Love". They cut "I'm Blue (The Gong-Gong Song)" the following year. Ike produced the record and leased it to Atco Records, who issued three less successful Ikettes singles in 1962. The following year, Ike switched them to his Teena record label for two singles: "Crazy in Love" (credited as Robbie Montgomery & the Ikettes) and "Prisoner in Love". "Here's Your Heart" came out on Innis in 1964 but failed to go national; nor did a Phi-Dan single in 1965.
Despite their beginnings, the Ikettes became successful artists in their own right. They had hits in the early and mid 1960s, charting with "I'm Blue (The Gong-Gong Song)" in 1961, "Camel Walk" in 1964, and "Peaches and Cream" and "I'm So Thankful" in 1965. Unheralded, they were arguably one of the ten top R&B female groups of all time. Ike never paid them much, which caused their lineup to change frequently, and they never received royalties.[citation needed] Former Ikettes Clydie King and Venetta Fields had a spectacular career after leaving Ike & Tina-Joining Ray Charles as the Raelettes, the UK rockers Humble Pie (post Peter Frampton) as two thirds of the Blackberries, a brief stint with Delaney and Bonnie, and, most famously, sang backup on the Rolling Stones' "Gimme Shelter".
A six-record stint from 1964 through 1966 on Modern Records saw a new lineup of Robbie Montgomery (ex-Artette), Venetta Fields, and Jessie Smith. Armstead, the first of the originals to leave, went solo and sang with groups before hooking up with a pre-Motown Nickolas Ashford and Valerie Simpson to form the for
