Let’s Hear it for the Boy – Deniece Williams (1984)
Born June Chandler, this American singer-songwriter started out as back-up singer for Stevie Wonder in the early 70’s before launching her own career. This hit saw her reach her commercial peak, at least in popular music. Later in the 80’s, Williams began focusing on gospel music, which earned her both commercial & critical success, resulting in four Grammys to-date. She’s also branched out into being an actress, record producer, and entrepreneur (starting her own promotions business). Her latest record, a collection of covers, came out in 2007, and Williams continues to perform and make appearances.
