On her second album she was produced by Smack with guest production stints by Blaze and Frankie Knuckles, included in it, her cover of " It Should Have Been Me" (a hit for Gladys Knight And The Pips in 1968 and for Yvonne Fair in 1976) and in 1995 she guested on the latter's album "Welcome To The Real World". She made a not successful comeback in 1997 with a third and last album that included her rendition of Inner Life's "Caught Up In A One Night Love Affair".

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.
