She was born in Paulsboro, New Jersey.
At the age of 18, she was introduced to Eddie Joy, a manager, who in turn introduced her to Charles Randolph Grean, an artists & repertory (A&R) worker for RCA and Dot Records in New York City. 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 was giving birth to a baby daughter and unable to promote her career. Consequently the song was the only recording of hers to chart, and she was dropped from Columbia's roster.
