In 1961, following the break-up of a rival girl group, Hendryx and Dash joined Holte and Tucker in “The Ordettes”. In 1961, Tucker was replaced by Philadelphia-born Cindy Birdsong and the quartet became The Bluebelles in 1962. The group changed their name again to Patti LaBelle and the Bluebelles after Holte was advised to adopt the stage name of Patti Labelle. Among the Bluebelles hits including the doo-wop classic, “I Sold My Heart to the Junkman” and doo-wop-esque R&B ballads “You’ll Never Walk Alone” and “Danny Boy”, the top forty classic, “Down the Aisle”, the soul standard “All or Nothing” and their now-legendary rendition of “Over the Rainbow”, which LaBelle later transformed into a tour-de-force in her 1981 solo cover. Dash sang with a sharp soprano.
In 1978, Dash released her self-titled debut album, which included the top-ten disco hit, “Sinner Man”. She also performed vocals on several ballads, notably “You,” and “We’re Lovers After All,” and “I Can’t Believe Someone Like You Could Really Love Me,” (with a full gospel choir backing); she also had another minor disco hit with “(Come and Take) This Candy from Your Baby”. Dash enjoyed much success and television and public appearances with “Sinner Man.” At this time, she was asked to compose and sing “For The Love of You” (the theme song for the 1980s PBS show Watch Your Mouth) and “Bringing It All Home.” She also guest-starred on an episode of Watch Your Mouth, playing a fictional character, a super diva with an attitude, “Tessie Bright”.
In 1983, Dash released two dance singles for Megatone Records in San Francisco, both produced by Patrick Cowley. The first, “Low Down Dirty Rhythm” was basically ignored, but the second single “Lucky Tonight” , was much more successful, even rising to the #5 spot on Billboard’s Dance Chart, and was even a Billboard “Pick of the Week.”
Dash’s next endeavor was the recording she made on the rap record, Satisfaction, for High Fidelity Three in 1985. Also during this time, Dash did session work for The O’Jays, Nile Rodgers of Chic, The Marshall Tucker Band, and David Johansen.Dash headlined for a month in the San Francisco Cirque du Soleil-influenced Teatro Zinzanni and performed at the 2007 Lesbian, Bisexual, Gay, Transgender parade. She also worked on a gospel album at the time.
Dash was honored by her hometown of Trenton, New Jersey, by being the grand marshal in the annual Thanksgiving Day Parade. The parade was held on Saturday November 22, 2008. The honor was presented to Dash during a time when her hometown of Trenton was at a point where morale was at an all-time low and violent crimes such as murder reached an all-time high. The hope was that such honors would spark encouragement in the city and show that people from Trenton can reach a measure of success with hard work.
Much of Dash’s focus since the early 1990s was on helping to raise money for homeless single women with children in New York. Dash received a citation from the deputy Mayor of New York City, Ruth Messinger, for her work and efforts in the underprivileged New York City community where she raised funds. Dash collected donations and funds she acquired for these mothers and their children which included clothing, toys, books, after-school activities, excursions to amusement parks, theater in the parks, and food.
