Mikki Farrow

Band,
Singer of R&B/Soul
A.k.a. Mikki Farrow Butler

Mikki Farrow was a singer and songwriter born in Detroit. In the mid-'60s she met and married saxophonist Andrew "Mike" Terry. Around 1968, she came to Philadelphia and got involved with the upcoming Sound of Philadelphia. She worked as songwriter and background vocalist, having recorded early on with Gamble & Huff, starting with "I Just Can't Stop Dancin" by Archie Bell And The Drells, all of the Jerry Butler sessions including "The Ice Man Cometh", and "Ice on Ice", as well as co-writing several Jerry Butler classics. Her work for Loleatta Holloway, Blue Magic, and Trammps led to a partnership with Norman Harris, who wrote and produced her solo material. "Love Emergency" was her best charting record, at #59. Prior to that chart success she recorded various songs including "Could It Be" and "Set My Heart At Ease", both for Karate Records. In the late eighties, she went back to Chicago and reconnected with Billy Butler, the brother of Jerry Butler. They subsequently dated and married, and moved back to Philly, where she started an evangelistic ministry, and pursued her love of Gospel music and to spread the word. Mikki passed away on February 12th 2002.
