Barbara was born in Detroit, Michigan, and was adopted by the actress Lillian Randolph, who appeared in It’s a Wonderful Life and many other movies. Barbara’s show business career began – under the name Barbara Ann Sanders, having taken the name of Lillian’s second husband – when she was eight years old, playing the part of Tanya in Bright Road with Harry Belafonte and Dorothy Dandridge. In 1957, both she and her mother Lillian briefly joined her uncle, Steve Gibson’s, vocal group, The Red Caps, as singers. She also appeared in her mother’s and uncle’s nightclub acts, using her mother’s maiden (and stage) name of Randolph by 1958.
Barbara Randolph first recorded as a solo singer for RCA Records in 1960. In 1964 she joined The Platters, replacing singer Zola Taylor. She also continued to work as an actress, taking the part of Dorothy in the 1967 movie Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner, starring Spencer Tracy, Sidney Poitier and Katharine Hepburn. In the same year, she signed with Motown Records, but only released two singles for the company on its subsidiary Soul label – “I Got A Feeling” / “You Got Me Huntin’ All Over” (Soul 35038), followed a year later by a version of “Can I Get a Witness” (Soul 35050), using the same B-side. Neither record was commercially successful, but Randolph was sufficiently highly regarded to tour with Marvin Gaye as a replacement for Tammi Terrell after Tammi became ill. She also toured with The Four Tops, Gladys Knight and the Pips and Hugh Masekela as part of the “Motown Sound” show in 1968. She was reportedly also considered as a replacement for Florence Ballard in 1967 for the Supremes, and Diana Ross in The Supremes in 1969. Randolph used the year 1970 for entertaining US forces in Vietnam, returning to paid performances the next year she married Eddie Singleton, who had previously been married to Berry Gordy’s ex-wife, Raynoma Liles Gordy. They opened a production company together, and Barbara Randolph retired from singing.
