    Biography

    Loleatta Holloway (b. November 5, 1946, d. March 21, 2011) was born in Chicago, Illinois, and began her career singing gospel music with the Queen of Gospel, Albertina Walker and the Caravans.
    In 1976 she began singing on Disco productions (mainly on Salsoul Records) and was responsible for some classics like "Love Sensation" or "Relight My Fire" by Dan Hartman.
    In 1984, Holloway left Salsoul Records and began to work on an album, "Crash Goes Love". Unfortunately it was never completed and only two singles were released for Streetwise, the title track and "Heartstealer".
    During the following years, many of her old hits were adapted by House producers like Black Box who used the original acapellas of her songs over new melodies. Her vocals were originally used without credit, but she successfully sued the band and received an undisclosed share of the royalties. The only time she was properly paid and credited was on the Marky Mark & The Funky Bunch song "Good Vibrations" (1991), which also sampled some of her vocals for "Love Sensation".
