What we have here is a young and talented singer that scored 2 Top 10 smashes in the early 90´s
and then disappeared from the scene.
She was build up to go in concurence with an upcoming star named Mariah Carey.
But nothing from that happened.
So she will always be remembered as a kind of One Hit Wonder.
Hold you tight is such a good dance record that climbed all the way to Nr.3 in the Billboard 200.
Her self titled album also had much potential with uptempo and club songs alternating with some ballads.
What do we learn from this lesson: Music business is not only about the talented people it´s about marketing and appearing talented at the right time!
