In 1968 she recorded "What A Man", reportedly improvised with the Stax musicians in only two takes, which reached #50 on the Billboard charts. It's said that threats from the KKK convinced her to retire from performing and return to Gainesville. Salt n Pepa/EnVogue sampled the song for "Whatta Man" in 1993, and she re-emerged to perform occasionally. She performed "What A Man" for the opening of the Stax Records museum in 2003.
