Emily "Cissy" Drinkard was born in 1933, and began singing gospel music with
her siblings at a very early age. Cissy formed her group, The Sweet
Inspirations, while she was pregnant with Whitney in 1963. The back-up
singers were fortunate to provide their vocals for such artists as Aretha
Franklin, Jimi Hendrix, Lou Rawls, Mahalia Jackson, Otis Redding, The
Drifters, Van Morrison and Wilson Pickett. However, the most popular
entertainer they probably backed was the king himself, Elvis Presley.
She was also the aunt to singer Dionne Warwick.

“Bad men need nothing more to accomplish their ends, than that good men should look on and do nothing.”
― John Stuart Mill
