Stevie B

Singer, songwriter, and producer Stevie B. was among the leading lights of the Miami dance music scene of the late '80s, later reaching the top of the pop charts with the mega-hit "Because I Love You (The Postman Song)." A native of South Florida, he worked a variety of dead-end jobs ranging from car-wash attendant to fast-food server before scoring his debut hit with 1987's "Party Your Body," which grew from a regional success to national club smash; it was also the title track of his 1988 debut LP, which went gold. With 1989's In My Eyes, Stevie B. launched his first Top 40 hit, "I Wanna Be the One"; its follow-up, "Love Me for Life," soon cracked the Top 40 as well. With 1990's "Because I Love You," he reached the pinnacle of his success, with the single's accompanying album Love & Emotion also generating a pair of Top 20 hits, "I'll Be by Your Side" and the title cut.

Over the course of five years, Stevie B accomplished what most artists can say of their entire careers: three platinum albums containing a total of thirteen Top 40 dance and/or pop singles and one classic number 1 hit. From heart-stopping ballads to hip-shaking dance songs, Stevie B did it all.

Billboard Chart Highlight
1987: Come Into My Arms
1987: No Reason to Cry
1989: Love Story

Judy Torres

Determined, is the best way to describe the beloved and enduring dance-pop singer, Judy Torres. Blessed with striking good looks, a powerful and flexible voice and the strength of mind and character to achieve her goals, Judy Torres has beaten the odds that have worn down many of her '80s contemporaries. While many of the dance artists of the '80s have faded off into oblivion, Torres has expanded her goals to include not only a successful music career, but also musical theatre and a feature show on New York's highly regarded radio station, WKTU.

Torres began her career at the tender age of seventeen and set out with a tour de force via the vehicle entitled, No Reason to Cry, a freestyle classic. The album from which this track was taken, Love Story, firmly established Torres as a prominent figure in dance/freestyle circles. Her follow-up, My Soul, showed a greater development of voice and focus of musical style. Love You for All Seasons pushed Torres into the mainstream to a receptive audience. Currently, Judy Torres is working on a new project, expanding her career aspirations and continuing to be a familiar face on the club performing circuit.

Angel (the original Cover Girl):

Born in The Bronx, New York, Louise “Angel” Sabater began singing at the Bronx River Community Center talent show. Although her performance awarded her an acting scholarship to the school of Theatrical Arts, her gift of song conquered her desire to act and Angel began singing at talent shows around the Tri-State area. By the age of 19, Angel was a regular at many of the top New York City clubs, and one night she heard of a new group being formed and holding auditions. Angel not only won the audition, but became the lead singer of a new group known today as The Cover Girls. Their self-titled debut album squeezed out hit after hit. Most notable would be “Show Me”, in the upper regions of the Billboard Charts. “Show Me” was the first independently distributed album to generate five Hot 100 singles. The success of the “Show Me” album led Angel and the Cover Girls to a recording contract with then industry giant Capitol Records. Their second album entitled “We Can’t Go Wrong” charted three songs on Billboard, including a top 5 position for the title track. Angel and the Cover Girls toured the U.S. and countries around the world as well as national tours with Milli Vanilli, Stevie B, N.K.O.T.B, and Menudo. The Cover Girls took home numerous awards including Best Vocal Group at the New York Music Awards, the Silver Award at the Tokyo Music Festival, and The Apollo’s Top New Female Group. After the release of their third single, Angel decided to go it on her own. Her release of several charting singles, including a remake of “Show Me” which reached the #1 spot on the Billboard Dance Charts, ensured the industry and fans alike that Angel is and always has been the driving force behing the Cover Girls. Today, Angel remains busy in the studio working on new material as she continues to tour the country as “The Original Cover Girl”, performing all of our favorite Cover Girl hits.
