Cass Elliot aka Mama Cass
Cass Elliot (far right) was a woman who was set on pursuing her dreams despite the criticism of her weight. She headed to Broadway and soon discovered her love for music. Eventually she became one of four members of The Mamas and The Papas where her distinctive voice helped launch their fame. She produced hits with the band such as "California Dreamin" and "Monday, Monday," but she is best known for her solo work on the song "Dream a Little Dream of Me." -Xfinity Music Programmers
