They were offered a local gig supporting local ensemble the Starfires (later the Outsiders), and at one of these performances, talent scout Redda Robbins offered them a contract. The group then met with songwriters Johnny Madara and David White, later members of The Spokesmen. Through their influence, the group was able to release a single on Philips Records called "The Boy Next Door"; the song hit number 18 on the US Billboard Hot 100 in December 1963.They were booked to appear on American Bandstand the weekend of November 22, 1963, which was cancelled due to John F.

Η Αλέκα Κανελλίδου (Αθήνα, 29 Ιανουαρίου 1946)είναι Ελληνίδα τραγουδίστρια. Γεννήθηκε στην Πλάκα και μεγάλωσε μέσα σε οικογένεια μουσικών. Είναι κόρη του βιολιστή Γιάννη Κανελλίδη . Στα 17 της χρόνια, ενώ ήταν ακόμη μαθήτρια, αποφάσισε να ασχοληθεί επαγγελματικά με το τραγούδι. Λόγω της αγάπης της για την τζαζ ασχολήθηκε κυρίως με το ξένο ρεπερτόριο. Έγινε γνωστή από το τραγούδι «Crazy Girl» στη ταινία του Γιάννη Δαλιανίδη Οι θαλασσιές οι χάντρες (1967), όπου ντουμπλάρει την Ζωή Λάσκαρη. Το 1974 η Κανελλίδου διακρίθηκε στο Φεστιβάλ Τραγουδιού Θεσσαλονίκης με το Βραβείο Ερμηνείας, ερμηνεύοντας το τραγούδι «Άσε με να φύγω», μία από τις μεγαλύτερες επιτυχίες της. Είχε συμμετάσχει στο Φεστιβάλ άλλες τρεις φορές το 1966, το 1968, το 1972. Η επιτυχία του τραγουδιού την έκανε ευρύτερα γνωστή. Εμφανίστηκε δίπλα σε γνωστούς καλλιτέχνες ενώ ήταν παραγωγική και δισκογραφικά. Τραγούδια της έγραψαν σημαντικοί συνθέτες και στιχουργοί με κυριότερη τη Νινή Ζαχά το όνομα της οποίας συνδέθηκε με αυτό της Κανελλίδου. Τα εμπορικότερα άλμπουμ της παραμένουν το "Για λίγους" (1979) και το "Νύχτα είναι θα περάσει" (1985) με τις συνολικές πωλήσεις τους να ξεπερνούν τα 100.000 αντίτυπα.
