            Stonye Figueroa’s Bio (short)

 

 

            Stonye Figueroa aka {Barbara Jean Cooks} was born in Houston, Texas February 29,1948 to Helen Mcgee and Jessie Cooks.  As Stonye was growing up her mother would always hear her singing and tell her someday she would become an Entertainer.  Well, she did grow up and become just that, a singer as well as a great entertainer giving a piece of herself to all the people that she entertained.

 

            Stonye’s first break came in 1966 while she was attending San Diego City College, a friend of her’s {Verna Range} called her and ask if she would be interested in singing in a singing with the great Johnny Otis….she was 18 years old fresh out of high school and of course she said yes and the rest is history  during her time with the “Johnny Otis Show” Stonye recorded 6 singles as the lead singer with the “Otisettes” which are still playing in the Far East and in the UK {Northorn England} and back east in the USA…During her time with the Johnny Otis Show she traveled to Japan, China, Guam, the UK Africa, Paris and all over the United States. and Canada.

 

            After being an Otisette for 3yrs.  Stonye revived  another call in November 1969 from a friend, this time it was her dream come true, the call was from Shirley Alexander, someone she barely knew, asking her if she wanted to come to Los Angeles and audition for the “Ike and Tina Revue”.  The answer was, of course yes!
