The Paris Sisters were a 1960s girl group from San Francisco, best known for their work with producer Phil Spector. The group consisted of lead singer Priscilla Paris; her older sister, Albeth Paris; and their middle sister Sherrell Paris. They reached the peak of their success in October 1961 with the hit single "I Love How You Love Me", which peaked at #5 on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart,[1] and sold over one million copies.[2] Some of the group's other hit songs include the US Top 40 single "He Knows I Love Him Too Much" (March 1962, #34[3]), "All Through The Night" (1961),[4] "Be My Boy" (#56), "Let Me Be The One" (#87), and "Dream Lover" (#91).[5]

The Paris Sisters appeared in the 1962 British rock film It's Trad, Dad! released in the U.S. as Ring-a-Ding Rhythm and directed by Richard Lester. In the film they performed the Spector-produced song "What Am I To Do?".

Sherrell Paris later served as a production assistant on The Price Is Right, and as host Bob Barker's personal assistant, until she was released in 2000.[6] Priscilla Paris died on March 5, 2004, from injuries suffered in a fall at her home. She was 59.[7]
