Maybe: My Memoir (One Chantel’s Story) is a story about the eventful life of one of the original members of The Chantels, the famed female rhythm and blues group. The Chantels rocked the world and the music industry during the late 1950s with hits including “Maybe,” “He’s Gone,” “The Plea,” “I Love You So,” and “Look In My Eyes” and many other chart toppers. This book gives readers a glimpse of the author’s childhood and what it was like growing up in the Bronx during the 1950s. Her father, Leroy Minus, was a jazz pianist who fell in love and married Thelma Minus, a jazz singer. Both parents retired their show business careers to raise their seven children. Ms. White attended St. Anthony of Padua’s Grammar School. White met four young girls, Arlene Smith, Jackie Landry, Millicent Goring and Lois Harris. The girls became good friends and formed The Chantels. Their memorable tours through America’s South in the midst of the Civil Rights Movement were often scary and interesting. The Chantels are still singing and sound better than ever as they tour the country, entertaining audiences and receiving standing ovations.
