Biography

Patrice Holloway (March 23, 1951–October 1, 2006) was an African-American soul and pop singer.

Patrice Yvonne Holloway was born in Los Angeles, California, the youngest of three children. Patrice was the younger sister of Motown artist Brenda Holloway. Patrice also had a contract with Motown, recording songs such as “The Touch of Venus” and “For the Love of Mike”. She recorded a few minor singles for the Capitol Records label during the mid-1960s, notably “Love And Desire”, “Ecstasy” and “Stolen Hours”, which became popular on the Northern Soul scene in the 1970s. She sang background vocals with her sister on many records for other artists, including Joe Cocker and the Grease Band’s 1968 cover version of The Beatles’ “With a Little Help from My Friends”, later the theme song to the 1980s television series The Wonder Years. She also sang backing vocals for Buffy Sainte-Marie.

As a composer, Patrice had two songs included on the soundtrack album for Diana Ross’s 1975 film Mahogany: ‘She’s The Ideal Girl’ and ‘Let’s Go Back To Day One’. Her first hit composition, ‘You’ve Made Me So Very Happy’, was written with her sister Brenda and has been covered by many singers and bands following Blood, Sweat And Tears having a hit with the song.
