Stacy Lattisaw was not yet even a teenager when she recorded her first album. Although she already had been singing since the age of six yrs old she was well on her way toward developing a vocal style of her own.
She was born and raised in Washington D.C. At the age of eleven, she sang before an estimated crowd of 30,000 people at Fort DuPont Park in South East D.C where she was the opening act for Ramsey Lewis. It wasn’t long before Henry Allen, President of Cotillion Records, heard of this young sensation and signed her up posthaste. Stacy continued to on to complete a total of 12 albums during her R&B singing career.
