Biography

Lorraine Crosby (born November 1960) better known as Mrs. Loud, is a vocalist from North East England.

Crosby was credited only as Mrs. Loud for her vocal work on the 1993 Meat Loaf album Bat Out of Hell II: Back Into Hell, particularly noted for performing the female part in “I’d Do Anything for Love (But I Won’t Do That)”. Crosby did not appear in the Michael Bay directed music video, where model Dana Patrick mimed her vocals.[1] Meat Loaf promoted the single with American vocalist Patti Russo performing the live female vocals of this song at his promotional appearances and concerts.

Crosby regularly performed at holiday camps and social clubs in England until April 2005 when she took a break from live work. In 2005 she sang a duet with Bonnie Tyler for the track “I’ll Stand by You” from the album Wings.

In 2005 Crosby appeared as a contestant on ITV’s The X Factor. She performed “You’ve Got a Friend” and progressed to the second round after impressing judges Louis Walsh and Sharon Osbourne but Simon Cowell expressed doubt saying she “lacked star quality.”[2] Crosby failed to progress beyond the second round, despite telling the judges the competition was “her last shot”.

She returned to live performance in April 2007, once again performing at British holiday parks in the summer of 2007.

In November 2007 Crosby appeared on the BBC Three TV show “Most Annoying Pop Songs We Hate To Love” discussing the Meat Loaf track “I’d Do Anything for Love (But I Won’t Do That)” which featured at no. 76, and in 2008 released a self-produced album entitled “Mrs Loud”.
