From the official site:
Though she only released three albums in the mid-1980s, Shannon made a huge impact on the music world and helped set the trend for a dance sound that still pulsates in clubs today.
Brenda Shannon Greene was born in Brooklyn in 1958 and studied singing and dance as a child. While attending York University, she joined the New York Jazz Ensemble as a vocalist. In 1983, she recorded "Let the Music Play" for the dance label Emergency Records. Its thumping, synth-laden sound set the standard for dance-club music and reached the number two spot on Billboard's R&B chart and number eight on Pop.
The following year saw the release of her first LP, which soon went gold. Two other top ten R&B hits followed along with two additional LPs. Shannon was poised to become a breakaway star, but the closing of Emergency Records, various litigations surrounding "Let the Music Play," and the decline of dance-oriented radio stations put an abrupt end to these ambitions. However, in 2000 she released a new album, the trance-inspired "The Best Is Yet to Come," which proved that Shannon still had what it takes to get bodies grooving on dance floors around the world.
They played that song constantly at my high school dances! :lol
I hear "Let the Music Play" all the time in gay bars. This could be good.
It'll be interesting to see how she's held up...
