'Angel Baby' Talks About Fibromyalgia

  [ 112 votes ]   [ Discuss This Article ] • June 7, 2005

Originally published June 5, 2005 in the Herald and News, Klamath Fall, Oregon A woman who was born in Klamath Falls and went on to gain fame with her one-hit single, "Angel Baby," is now serving as the national spokeswoman for the National Fibromyalgia Association. Rosalie "Rosie" Hamlin was born in Klamath Falls in 1945 and has relatives spread throughout Oregon. Hamlin moved from Klamath Falls with her family as a child to Alaska. She later moved to National City, Calif., where she recorded her song "Angel Baby" with her group, "The Originals," in 1961. In 1995, the song was inducted into the One Hit Wonder section of the Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame, making Hamlin the first female Hispanic to claim that honor. In 1996, National City Mayor George H. Waters proclaimed March 28 as "Rosalie 'Rosie' Hamlin Day" and congratulated her for her outstanding accomplishments. Hamlin's "Angel Baby" has been covered by many artists, including John Lennon on his "Menlove Ave." album. He called Hamlin one of his "all time favorites." The Southern California Motion Picture Council recently honored Hamlin for the song, which has sold more than four million copies and has been used on the soundtrack for such films as "She's Out of Control," "Date With an Angel," "Colors," "Hollywood Knights," "After Hours" and "My Family" ("Mi Familia). Hamlin has recorded three albums and has spent more than 40 years in the entertainment industry making major concert appearances at such places as New York City's Madison Square Garden and Universal City's Amphitheater in California. Other appearances included American Bandstand in 1961 and shows with such artists as Johnny Otis, Jackie Wilson, Carla Thomas, Barbara Lewis and Chubby Checker. Rosie & The Originals also opened for The Rolling Stones during their American debut, and a few years ago she performed in a filming in Pittsburgh for a nationally televised doo wop special "Red White and Rock." Hamlin has devoted her time performing for numerous charitable causes and donated proceeds such organizations as the Jerry Lewis Telethon, Habitat for Humanity, Toys for Tots, Salvation Army, San Diego Barrio Station, Los Angeles Rescue Mission for the Homeless, and a fund-raiser to get Ritchie Valens a star on the Hollywood Boulevard Walk of Fame. Hamlin is the spokeswoman for fibromyalgia. She was on the cover of a recent issue of their magazine "Fibromyalgia Aware," which has a half-million readers. In a four-page feature story, "Rosie Hamlin, from Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame to life with fibromyalgia pain," she talks about the incurable illness that affects around 10 million people, and how it has affected her career to the point where she can no longer make a living performing at concerts. Her article can be read on the Web at During National Fibromyalgia Awareness Month, Hamlin had numerous radio interviews in which she discussed the painful rheumatic condition characterized by fatigue with spreading or localized pain, tenderness and connective tissue brought on by fibromyalgia. Hamlin gave her publicist, Ron Steele, and son, Clarence, permission to record Judith Muro singing "Angel Baby" in Spanglish at the Steeles' recording studio. In 2002, Clarence Steele and Muro met Hamlin and saw her perform at the Amphitheater in Universal City, Calif., one of her last public appearances. The Steeles have released a demo CD compilation with songs donated by artists who are Hamlin fans. Profits will help her pay off her house mortgage. The title is "Del Taco Rocks," a theme song for a nation-wide fast food chain Del Taco. Steele wants to let people hear the song and then respond with their ratings. It can be heard at Copyright © 2005 Herald and News.
