The "Diva" of House Music & much more...lot of beautiful songs with true lyrics (I Thank You, Respect, Warning!, Beautiful Love, Don't Let It Show On Your Face, Too Many Fish). One of my fav. songs is "Don't Let It Show On Your Face". Nothing more to say just listen her music.
<3 I Love You & your music <3.

I enjoyed her releases very much. Her first album was very good and off all 12" releases I like Respect the most. This song always stayed with me. She has a great voice and cool personality, a diva :-)
I was Lucky to see her some years ago (around 2011?) at the Loveland festival at Amsterdam. Very near were I live. I believe the performance was with Frankie Knuckles.
