Gwen Dickey


She was the voice behind Rose Royce – a soul, funk and disco band formed by Motown writer/producer Norman Whitfield. She was also in my opinion one of the most beautiful soul sisters of the 70/80s funk scene.

Gwen was born in Biloxi, Mississippi, USA and had most of her success with Rose Royce in the 70s with massive hits like "I'm Going Down", "I Wanna Get Next To You", "Wishing On a Star", "Love Don't Live Here Anymore", and "Car Wash". However she qualifies as an 80s soul sister because the tracks above spilled into the 1980s.

Gwen now has a solo career, lives in the UK and has collaborated with the likes of Cover Girls, KWS and Jay-Z. She is currently touring with her band, which is billed as ‘Gwen Dickey’s Rose Royce’.

If there is a slight regret, it is that her voice was not on Rose Royce’s 1984 monster hit, Magic Touch.

I'm impressed, I must say. Seldom do I encounter a blog that's equally educative and amusing, and
without a doubt, you have hit the nail on the head.

The issue is something not enough people are speaking intelligently about.
Now i'm very happy that I found this in my search for something concerning this.
