As a member of The Mamas and the Papas, Cass scored six top 10 hits, including “Monday Monday,” “California Dreamin'” and “Dedicated to the One I Love.” The group sold over 40 million records and was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1998.

Cass then went on to a solo career, scoring hits like “Make Your Own Kind of Music” and “Dream a Little Dream of Me.” She died of heart failure in London in 1974.
