Loleatta was born in Chicago, Illinois in November 1946, and began her career singing gospel music with the Queen of Gospel, Albertina Walker and the Caravans.
In 1976 she began singing on disco productions (mainly on Salsoul), and was responsible for some classics like "Love Sensation" or "Relight My Fire" by Dan Hartmann.
In 1984, Holloway left Salsoul Records and began work on an album, "Crash Goes Love". Unfortunately it was never completed and only two singles were released for Streetwise, the title track and "Heartstealer".
During the following years, many of her old hits were adapted by clever house producers like Black Box, but the Hip Hop guy Marky Mark also had a big hit with "Good Vibrations" by using her vocals. From time to time Mrs. Holloway was still seen in studios, and the results were magnificent all the time.
Loleatta Holloway is still performing on stage and if you ever get the chance to see her, don't miss it!
Is sometimes credited as Loletta Holloway
