Appealing to the disco scene, she initially scored with 'It Must Be Love', the title track of her debut album (1978), following which she recorded a further two albums.
The 'It Must Be Love' album contained contributions from Webster Lewis, Wah Wah Watson and Lee Ritenour.

'More Of You' was released in 1979 and included 'Hang On In There Baby' - dubbing on the voice of Johnny Bristol to form a duet.
'Gonna Tell The World' was released in 1981 and contained the track 'My Destiny' along with the excellent 'Making Room For Love', a track not too dissimilar to Magic Lady's 'Hold Tight'.
Much of her music was produced by Skip Scarbrough, whom she later married.
