Shannon

Born Brenda Shannon Greene in 1958, Shannon spent her childhood years in Washington, D.C., and New York City's Brooklyn borough. While attending college, she joined the New York Jazz Ensemble as a singer, which led to a chance meeting with drummer Lenny White and some recording sessions. One single, 1983's "Let the Music Play," was issued on the New York-based dance label Emergency as a 12" single with Shannon listed as the artist. Produced by Mark Liggett and Chris Barbosa, the track's heavy upfront staccato beats and synth bass marked it as an early freestyle single. The record became a monster club hit, pumped its way up to the pop Top Ten, and sold a million copies. Shannon's debut album, Let the Music Play, was issued on Mirage in February 1984 and went gold, peaking at number 32 pop in March 1984. Shannon followed that up with the Top Ten R&B hit "Give Me Tonight," as well as "My Heart's Divided."

Do You Wanna Get Away was the title of her second Mirage album, issued in May 1985. The title track single hit number 13 R&B in spring 1985. Her third album, Love Goes All the Way, was released on Atlantic in 1986, with the singles "Dancin," "Criminal," and "Prove Me Right." She did work for soundtracks and jingles and started recording again during the late '90s, when she contributed to releases by the likes of Todd Terry, Sash!, and Jacques Lu Cont (years before Madonna sought him out). After appearing on VH-1's One-Hit Wonders program, she released the 1999 album The Best Is Yet to Come on the Contagious label. A Beauty Returns, featuring an appearance from Dead Prez and a cover of the Human League's "Human," followed on Diggin 4 Brown in 2007. ~ Ed Hogan, Rovi

This freaked me out. Apparently, if you copy and paste this on ten comments in the next ten minutes you will have the best day of your life tomorrow. You will either be kissed or asked out, if you break this chain you will see a little dead girl in your room tonight. In the next 53 minutes someone will say I love you or I'm sorry. This freaked me out. This isn't fake. Apparently, if you copy and paste this in the next ten minutes you will have the best day of your life tomorrow.
