Friday 11am ET: Feature Artist – Stacy Lattisaw

Stacy Lattisaw Jackson (born November 25, 1966) is an American R&B singer.

During the 1980s and early 1990s, Lattisaw had several US R&B hit singles. She also scored three moderate hits on the US Hot 100 chart; Let Me Be Your Angel (US#21), Love on a Two-Way Street (US#26), and Miracles (US#40).

Lattisaw recorded her first album for Cotillion Records at the age of 12 in 1979, under the direction of record producer Van McCoy. However, it was not until she affiliated with Narada Michael Walden, a former drummer with the Mahavishnu Orchestra who was just beginning a career as a producer, that she found larger success. Under Walden’s direction, she scored several R&B hit albums between 1981 and 1986. She also opened for the Jacksons Triumph Tour in 1981.

Lattisaw continued recording into the late 1980s, signing with Motown Records in 1986. She scored her only #1 R&B hit with duet partner Johnny Gill, titled “Where Do We Go from Here”, in 1989. By the early 1990s, she retired from the music industry and concentrated on raising her family. Since the 1990s, she has exclusively sung gospel music. Her official website stated that she was to work on a gospel CD. In 2010, Lattisaw’s music career was chronicled on the TV One docu-series Unsung, in which she also appeared.
