brought in Pandy to lay down the vocals to "Love Can't Turn Around" that became a US commercial success and made the Chicago house sound and house music as we know it today a widespread phenomenon.

Since then, Pandy has been a consistent household name, lending his powerful voice to several acclaimed dance recordings for over two decades.
