Obscure Detroit singer Rose Batiste is an ageless wonder; she's more than 50, but looks much younger. Singer Emmanuel Laskey discovered the cute, almond-complexion warbler and got her a deal with Thelma Records, owned by Berry Gordy's first wife, where Don Davis produced her debut "I Can't Leave You." She recorded other tracks for Thelma that never surfaced. Ed Wingate's Ric Tic label issued her second single, "That's What He Told Me" b/w "Holding Hands," in 1965; Bob Hamilton co-wrote both sides with Joanne Bratton-Jackson, with brother Al joining them on "Holding Hands." She jumped to Golden World Records in 1966 for one release, "Sweetheart Darling," written by Al and Bob Hamilton, Joe Hunter, and Richard Morris; "That's What He Told Me" released a year earlier on Ric Tic rode shotgun.
