MORE INFO:   Cincinnati-born soul singer and songwriter Gloria Jones has been performing for nearly five decades, first appearing in the spotlight in the mid-1960s with her original recording of “Tainted Love.” The song went on to be covered by Soft Cell and reached international success in 1981. Jones joined British rock band T. Rex as keyboardist and backing vocalist in 1974 until the band’s end in 1977. As a songwriter, Jones penned a number of songs  through the years, including “My Mistake” (Diana Ross and Marvin Gaye) and “If I Were Your Woman” (Gladys Knight).
