The Dixie Cups® began performing rhythm and blues music in 1963. Their number one hit, “Chapel of Love,” beat out the Beatles for the top spot in 1964 and garnered the group’s first gold record. Drawing on their New Orleans roots, the group recorded “Iko Iko,” a song about Mardi Gras Indians. The group now includes original members Barbara A. Hawkins (right) and Rosa L. Hawkins (left), joined by Athelgra Neville.
