Her aunt Barbara Roy inspired Jocelyn to spread her musical wings. She began her career in the 1970s as a studio singer for many groups and artists like Musique, Inner Life, Bad Girls, The Salsoul Orchestra, Disco Tex & His Sex-O-Lettes, Van McCoy, Dazzle, Revanche, Cerrone, Chic and Change.
In 1984, she started her solo career gaining great success with the single "Somebody Else's Guy," which reached #2 on the Billboard R&B Singles chart (#75 on the Hot 100). In 1985-87 she worked with Culture Club and toured with them. In 1990, some of her records started to be sampled by House and Rap producers. Among them: Snap! (who sampled her vocals from "Love's Gonna Get You"). Since then, her contribution to the world of dance music has been well recognized, working with countless artists of the genre, such as Todd Terry, Martha Wash, Kym Mazelle, Jamestown, Cassius, Right Said Fred, DJ BoBo and many, many others.
