Sandra Bears, also known as Sandra Love (her solo artist stage name), is a native Washingtonian with a span of more than five decades in the music industry. She is one of the original founding members of DC’s fabulous female group of the 1960s, The Jewels. At 19 years old, the song “Opportunity” climbed the 1965 Billboard Charts. While performing with The Jewels at the world-famous Apollo Theater in New York City, they were hand-picked by the Godfather of Soul, James Brown, to tour with his famous James Brown Revue and they became his first female background singers. She continues to perform as a solo artist while recording and performing with The Jewels. Ms. Love excites audiences with her R&B, soul and blues songs, and her powerhouse stage presence.
