Throughout the 70s and 80s DENIECE WILLIAMS released a string of successful works on Columbia/ARC Records, scoring certified Gold selling albums on both labels along with numerous appearances across the US and UK charts. In 1976 she released her debut album, This Is Niecy, featuring the mega-hit FREE which topped the UK Pop chart. Song Bird, her sophomore set released on Columbia in 1977, was once again produced by Earth, Wind & Fire s Maurice White.
1979 saw Deniece move to ARC Records where she released 3 very successful albums including the Gold selling, My Melody. LET S HEAR IT FOR THE BOY was a single recorded for the multi platinum-selling soundtrack album for the iconic movie Footloose. When the huge success of the single was realised, an album was recorded. Released in 1984, the title track returned DENIECE WILLIAMS to #1 on the US Pop, R&B and Dance charts and secured a#2 position on the UK Pop chart, held from the top by Wham’s Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go! Deniece also received two Grammy nominations in the process. Other notable singles included on this release include the powerful and now iconic soulful BLACK BUTTERFLY and the Dance hit NEXT LOVE, which both secured top 20 R&B positions.
