She is married to Cameron McVey, mother to Mabel (5) and Lolita Moon, and step-mom to Marlon Roudette.

Cherry joined English post-punk band Rip Rig & Panic in 1981 as a vocalist, later performing with several ex-members of that band as Float Up CP. In the mid-80s she sang backing vocals for The Slits and The The ("Slow Train To Dawn", 1987).

In 1988, Cherry recorded the international hit single "Buffalo Stance" Her debut Raw Like Sushi"s eclectic blend of hip-hop rhythms and pop melodies earned Cherry excellent reviews and sizeable sales figures.

In 1990, Cherry contributed to the AIDS-charity collection, Various - Red Hot + Blue, singing Cole Porter's "I've Got You Under My Skin", but was quiet again until the release of Homebrew in 1992.

Cherry reasserted herself as a commercial force in 1994 with the international hit single "Seven Seconds", which saw her collaborating with Senegalese superstar Youssou N'Dour. After another lengthy recording hiatus she released the album Man in 1996 which featured her last big hit single Woman.

She is simply charming. Just like her previous affairs with Rip Rig + Panic and Float Up CP, Neneh continued avoiding cliches - 'Raw Like Sushi' should do for a start to anyone interested, the most amazing feeling, her solo debut is still ahead of the time. Equally decent at rap and pop. A charming artist, indeed.
