She was pregnant in 1954 when she was introduced to Eddie Joy, a manager, who in turn introduced her to Charles Randolph Grean, an A&R worker for RCA and Dot Records in New York. Grean gave a demo of Weber's singing a song called "Marionette" to Mitch Miller, the head of A&R at Columbia Records. Miller took a song entitled "Let Me Go, Devil" and had it rewritten as "Let Me Go, Lover!" for Weber, who recorded it on the Columbia label. The song was performed on the television show, Studio One and caught the public's fancy, reaching #1 in the United States and #16 in the United Kingdom in 1955. At the time of the song's biggest success, however, she gave birth to a baby daughter and was unable to promote her career.

In 1957 another single "Gone" was released. Consequently the song was the only recording of hers to chart, and she was dropped from Columbia's roster. Weber died of heart failure at a mental institution in Ancora, New Jersey, aged 45. Read more on Last.fm.
