"I need a Miracle" was written especially for Coco in 1994 by Rob Davis & Victor Imbres, at MCA (Universal Music)London. Coco developed the Song by altering the melody line in places and creating Ad Libitum parts. Released on Greenlight Recordings USA in 1996, "I need a Miracle" quickly became a favourite on the underground scene. A second release, with 6 mixes came about in 1997, on Positiva (EMI).
By 1999, "I need a Miracle" had become the subject of a vastly popular bootleg, the whitelabel Fragma v CoCo "Toca's Miracle", a concept credited to DJ Vimto from Nottingham, UK.
An Official release of this monster hit came about on April 10th 2000, on EMI/Positiva, selling 170,000 copies in the first week on the EMI territories alone. The ad-libitum parts created by Coco open the vocal line of Toca's Miracle.
Coco went on to be an in house writer with DJ Spoony's project the DreemTeam, Artful Dodger and Craig David, with a highly successful 2Step hit entitled "It ain't enough", at the same time releasing "Take My Advice" on Oyster which entered the pop charts at #20 in 2001. Her collaborative works with Artful Dodger also entering the charts that year in the UK.
Coco went on to record "Loving Arms" (written by Billie Ray Martin) in 2004, again to commercial success, this appears on Now 2004 and Ministry Of Sound compilations.
Coco became "Coco Star" in 2007, and revocalled "I need a Miracle"on collaborations with KLM Music, with mixes from Sunflake and Statikshox.
Remixes of "Toca's Miracle" saw Coco credited for her contribution in EMI territories only, as confused record labels in mainland Europe and Australsia printed the booking details and image of another vocalist on the covers (as seen on Kontor Records, Germany and Central Station Records, Australia).
