In 1972, Detroit's Burnett Sisters were singing mostly standards and pop songs locally, when their distant relative Wardell Montgomery invited the four siblings to help him bring to life selections from Teen Age Widow--his self-published poetry chapbook--at the RAPA community theater.

Montgomery would continue working intermittently as a songwriter for Hamilton?s production company, but his four relatives have disappeared entirely.
