Bernadette Carroll (Bernadette Dalia, Elizabeth, New Jersey, 21 June 1945 - 5 October 2018) was an American pop singer.
In Linden, NJ in 1959, Bernadette joined with sisters Barbara and Jiggs Allbut and Lynda Malzone to form a group called The Starlets. Their first recording, on the Astro label, was "PS I Love You." After The Starlets disbanded, Bernadette made her first solo recording for the Julia label, "My Heart Stood Still." She then joined with Tommy DeVito and Nick Massi of The Four Seasons to record the song "Nicky," written by Massi and Bob Gaudio, which was Bernadette's first single for the Laurie label. Bernadette's second Laurie single was "Party Girl," which was produced and co-written by Ernie Maresca. That recording became a national hit. In the 60's, Bernadette teamed up with Denise Ferri and Peggy Santiglia to do be back-up singers for Connie Francis, Patty Duke, Bobby Hebb and Frankie Valli (one of which is featured in the hit musical Jersey Boys). The trio backed up for Lou Christie's #1 "Lightning Strikes" and the follow-up "Rhapsody in the Rain." In 1968, Bernadette became the lead singer of The Angels and recorded four sides for RCA Records, including "The Boy With The Green Eyes," written by Neil Diamond. She toured with them for one year.
