Rose Batiste is an American rhythm and blues singer from 1960s Detroit, Michigan. Her best known tracks were "I Miss My Baby" written by Richard Parker as "D. Peoples", and "Hit And Run". In 1970, Ian Levine brought records from the U.S. to England, including Rose Batiste's "Hit and Run". Batiste was filmed performing at the Blackpool Mecca for the video collection The Strange World of Northern Soul by Ian Levine. She drew a following after being rediscovered in England during the Northern Soul movement.

Batiste was originally signed to Thelma Records, owned by Berry Gordy's first wife. Don Davis produced her debut single "I Can't Leave You". Her second single, "That's What He Told Me" b/w "Holding Hands," was released on Ed Wingate's Ric-Tic Records label in 1965. Bob Hamilton co-wrote both sides with Joanne Bratton-Jackson. Batiste also recorded with Golden World Records in 1966, singing "Sweetheart Darling", written by Al and Bob Hamilton, Joe Hunter, and Richard Morris, with "That's What He Told Me" also on the album. In 1970 she began working as a typist for Motown Records (the company that had bought out Ric-Tic several years prior), and ended up recording some stuff there as well, none of which has yet seen release.
