Bio

First Ladies of Disco Show is inspired by author/speaker/host James Arena's tribute book "First Ladies of Disco: 32 Stars Discuss the Era and Their Singing Careers," a best seller in the United States, Canada and Europe.

Three extraordinary women who have made their marks on the pop, R&B and disco charts have joined forces for the first time as First Ladies of Disco. The vocal power of this new ensemble is unsurpassed, and their style and energy meld perfectly on stage and in their debut single, "Show Some Love."

Martha Wash

Two-time Grammy Nominee, known for her distinctive and powerful dramatic soprano voice. Ms. Wash has been dubbed "The Queen of Clubland" due to her ongoing success in the dance music genre. Martha's fame would have made her mentor, the late disco pioneer Sylvester, proud. As a member of The Weather Girls (previously known as Two Tons of Fun), Wash achieved tremendous success with the immortal "It's Raining Men," one of dance music's all-time greatest hits. Wash also performed lead vocals on Black Box's chart-toppers "Strike It Up" and "Everybody Everybody," as well as C+C Music Factory's "Gonna Make You Sweat (Everybody Dance Now)," which hit No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100. After 10 years, Martha recently returned to the Billboard Dance Charts with her hit single "I'm Not Coming Down," which reached the #2 spot topping Cher, Jennifer Lopez and Lady Gaga.

Linda Clifford

Five-time Grammy Nominee, scored numerous hits from the 1970s through the 1980s, most notably "If My Friends Could See Me Now" and "Runaway Love," the latter considered a landmark innovation in rap history. In 1980, she released a duet album with R&B legend Curtis Mayfield, The Right Combination. She recorded the popular "Shoot Your Best Shot," produced by Isaac Hayes, and the song "Red Light" for the soundtrack of the smash hit movie Fame. Both songs reached #1 on the American dance chart and enjoyed pop crossover success.

Evelyn "Champagne" King

Made her dramatic debut on the disco scene with 1978's Top 10 classic "Shame," taken from her Gold+ debut album, Smooth Talk. The song topped the Billboard Hot 100, R&B and Dance Charts. She enjoyed great success with "I Don't Know If It's Right," "I'm In Love" and "Love Come Down" in the years that followed, all of which cemented her esteemed ranking among prominent pop, club and R&B vocalists. Evelyn is the recipient of numerous honors throughout the world, among them the "Dance Music Hall of Fame Award" in 2004 and the "Living Legend Award" in 2007.

These legendary vocalists come together to bring you one of the most talked about shows in music history. This collective of fiery songs, dynamic vocal delivery and non-stop energy makes the First Ladies of Disco Show not only a historic phenomenon, but a uniquely personal and one-of-a-kind experience.
