Vidal was originally a member of the band, Desmond Child & Rouge, but went solo with a self-titled debut album recorded in 1987. The album included the single “Do Me Right” written by ex-bandmate Desmond Child.

Vidal also contributed backup vocals to the The Smithereens’ 1984 single “A Girl Like You”.

She also appeared in the 1985 Jim Carrey film, Once Bitten, as a member of a high school band and contributed two songs to the soundtrack.

She wrote the 1989 Belinda Carlisle’ hit “”Summer Rain”“. Vidal is currently married to the successful music producer/songwriter Rick Nowels.

    I usually like this kind of music, but I find her voice extremely difficult to listen to.

    Funny, since SHE is a female...so you'll either have 'her' albums or fuck all 'cause you're pointlessly spamming without doing the most basic of research.
