A Brief History
Cindy Scott was born Sundray Tucker and raised in North Philadelphia. Having Lynda Laurence
of The Supremes as her sister and Tammi Terrell and Bunny Sigler as cousins, Cindy was destined
to sing, and by the age of 14 she was doing just that with sister Lynda and later with the Ordettes,
which included Patti LaBelle.
Sundray Tucker became Cindy Scott after a deal went sour with Don Robey and she was forced to
change her name and record incognito. She soon began collaborating with Leon Huff and in 1967
had two releases on Veep Records for producers John Madara and Dave White -- "I Love You
Baby" and Otis Redding's "I've Been Loving You Too Long."
Cindy Scott sang background vocals on many Madara/White sessions. She was always a joy to
work with. The sides that we did record with her got exposure in Europe and were successful

Bunny Siegler. After five years as Cindy Scott, she went back to using her real name, Sundray

for a smallrecord company in England entitled "The Loving Country." She has also recorded a two
volume set with Lynda Laurence and Scherrie Payne called "Driving Force" and has an album,
"Live & Red Hot," which was released in the UK in 2002 and features 45 minutes of a live show
performed in England in 2000.
