In 1982 the group Shades Of Love landed at number 26 on Billboard Magazine’s Hot Dance Club Play chart with their head nodding dance track “Body To Body (Keep In Touch)”. Later that year the group’s lead singer, Meli’sa Morgan, joined High Fashion - a trio which included Eric McClinton and celebrated vocalist Alyson Williams. High Fashion released “Feelin’ Lucky Lately”, which charted at number 32 on the U.S. Black Singles chart, before Mel’isa departed from the group in 1983. After singing back up for artists such as Chaka Khan, Whitney Houston, and Melba Moore, Meli’sa Morgan scored her first solo hit with “Do Me Baby” in 1986. Her cover version of the Prince classic became her signature song and, along with her monster hits “Fool’s Paradise” and “Do You Still Love Me” launched her debut album.
In 1987, Meli’sa’s sophomore album was released on Capitol Records. Good Love was a 43 minute masterpiece produced chiefly by legendary recording artist/producer Kashif and Meli’sa herself. Notable hits from her follow up to her debut include; “If You Can Do It: I Can Too!” and her timeless duet with Kashif “Love Changes”. Meli’sa worked with legendary Attala Zane Giles and Chuckii Booker on her third, and final album on Capitol Records, The Lady In Me which yielded the single “Can You Give Me What I Want”.
