Annette was born  in Miami, Florida. She died on 4.April 1977 in a plane crash.
Taken from
Paul Kelly Inteview ....Annetta had a single release on Love Hill (and, subsequently, Juggy) called 'Since There Is No More Of You'. Written by Paul Kelly, recorded on a trip by the lady to New York and featuring his additional vocal support, 'Annetta' is better known as Annette Snell. Paul took a little time out to talk about the lady, whose career was tragically curtailed by a fatal plane crash in Georgia on April 4, 1977 but not before she had recorded a number of his songs for Buddy Killen and Dial in the earlier part of the seventies, most notably the #19 'Billboard' r&b hit, 'You Oughta Be Here With Me'... 'I met Annette Snell about 1960 with Waymon Walker. He used to go with a little girl in Opa-locka whose name was Mattie [Lovett]. And we dealt with Mattie and they had a group - the Mar-Vells, that was they name of the group. It was a good group. They moved to the city and we started putting songs together for them. I used to give them Marvelettes songs to sing live and Annette Snell was part of that group. She was super. Loretta [Letlo] used to do all the lead singing. We didn't know at the time that Annette was so good. The group were all good.'The Mar-Vells would do a lot of session work in Miami in the early sixties, before going on to record in their own right for Sound Stage 7 and Monument as the Fabulettes in 1967/68. They split when Annette opted to go solo and, specifically discussing 'Since There Is No More Of You', Paul said, 'I didn't duet, I do the background. If you call it a duet, in that case it's a 'triple-et', because there's Juanita there too. She used to be on all my songs in the seventies.' He added, 'Annette's death was a tragedy. There is stuff we recorded on her that has never been released. Buddy Killen may still have the tracks.'
