Nedra Talley

~ Person


Nedra Talley, now known as Nedra Talley Ross (born January 27, 1946), is an American singer best known as a former member of the girl group The Ronettes, in which she performed with her cousins Ronnie and Estelle Bennett. She is of African American, Native American and Puerto Rican descent. In 2007, the Ronettes were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

In 1967, Talley and Estelle Bennett left the Ronettes, reportedly due in part to interference from the group's producer, and later Ronnie's husband Phil Spector. Tally has stated that at the time of meeting Scott Ross she became a born again Christian. Feeling that, at that time, there was little place for Christian inspired music, played a part in that decision.

She also recorded Full Circle, a solo album, in 1978.

She is married to Scott Ross, a former DJ, turned interviewer for The 700 Club on the Christian Broadcasting Network, and they have four children. Today she is a businesswoman working in Real Estate. She lives with her husband in Virginia Beach.
