Harlem, New York, USA (1970 – 2000)

Vicki Sue Robinson (31 May 1954 – 27 April 2000) was an American theatre and film actress and singer born in Harlem, New York, USA, closely associated with the disco era of late 1970s pop music; she is most famous for her 1976 hit, Turn the Beat Around.
A former jingles singer, this talented lady appeared in Hair and Jesus Christ Superstar. She was a waitress, model and even recorded with Japanese artists. She later became the most associated singer with the era.

Her 1976 hit, “Turn the Beat Around”, went into the top 10, and stayed there for six months, and earned her a Grammy Nomination for Best Female Pop Performance. She also won the Billboard Award for No. 1 Pop album for “Never Gonna Let You Go”. Robinson’s second album “Vicki Sue Robinson” released in late 1976 was slightly more successful, reaching #39 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart and #45 on the Billboard 200. Her self titled album scored hits with the singles “Daylight” and “Should I Stay/I Won’t Let You Go.” Released in 1978, Robinson’s third album “Half & Half” was slightly less successful, peaking at #56 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart and #110 on the Billboard 200. The album scored hits with “Hold Tight”, “Trust In Me”, “Jealousy”, “Freeway Song” and the albums’ most single successful hit “Nighttime Fantasy.” When her fourth album “Movin’ On” was released in 1979, it inexplicably was failed to chart and its singles were virtually ignored by the mainstream.
