Lorraine Reid was born in Toronto, Canada and is of Jamaican descent. She is the oldest of three children and attributes her solid foundation to her mother, uncle and grandma, who provided a stable home environment throughout her childhood. Lorraine’s first performance was in Junior Kindergarten when she sang her ABC’s at Parent’s Night. From that night forward, she continued to perform throughout her academic career. In the eleventh grade, she met Mark Ryan, which resulted in the conception of the group, Temperance.

Lorraine Reid is perhaps best known as the former powerhouse vocalist of TEMPERANCE. Temperance fared extremely well in both the dance and mainstream markets, and can now boast more Juno nominations than any other dance group to date.

As the lead vocalist of Temperance, Lorraine earned 7 Juno Award nominations. Their first album, VIRTUES OF LIFE, released in 1995, attained these incredible feats and much more. In 1996, the Canadian Euro dance group released a cover version of the song, “Forever Young,” which reached number 8 on the Canadian Dance Chart. The single, “Forever Young,” was also released in the United States in the summer of 1997, and immediately won the hearts of many new fans and critics south of the border. Their debut album featured 6 consecutive National Top Ten charting dance singles, and 4 MuchMusic Video Award nominations, which resulted in a 1994 MuchMusic Video Award. Along with a feature in Billboard Magazine in June 1998, their import follow-up single, “Lost In Love,” created immense anticipation for their second follow-up album release titled, IF YOU DON’T KNOW.
