Whatever Happened To… Thelma Houston?

Don’t Leave me This Way – Thelma Houston (1976)
Born Thelma Jackson, this American singer scored a genre-defining international hit with this track. But with the backlash against disco in the late 70’s and early 80’s, Houston wasn’t able to score another hit. During the 80’s and 90’s, she continued to release music sporadically while she also took on television acting roles and contributed her voice to film soundtracks. Houston released her latest album in 2007, and she continues to make over 200 performances per year.
