R&B diva Thelma Houston rose to fame in 1977 with the hit single "Don't Leave Me This Way," but she enjoyed a distinguished career as a performer and recording artist both before and after her signature tune hit the charts. She was born Thelma Jackson in Leland, Mississippi on May 7, 1946. Her mother worked picking cotton to help support Thelma and her three sisters before the family moved to Long Beach, California, where Thelma spent most of her childhood. In 1969, Houston moved into secular music as she signed a deal as a solo artist with Dunhill Records, which released her debut album, Sunshower, that year. Sunshower was produced by star songwriter Jimmy Webb, who also wrote all the songs except for a cover of the Rolling Stones' "Jumpin' Jack Flash. While the album fared well with critics, it was less than a hit, and Dunhill dropped Houston.
