7 April 1948, Brooklyn, New York, USA. Douglas was a member of US vocal group the Chantels in the early 70s before going solo. Her debut single, released in November 1974, was a cover of ‘Doctor’s Orders’ - a previous UK Top 10 hit for female UK pop vocalist Sunny - which peaked just outside the US Top 10. After the minor hit ‘A Hurricane Is Coming Tonite’, further US chart success proved elusive for Douglas. Her recordings included a version of Abba’s ‘Dancing Queen’ and a mid-tempo disco remake of the Bee Gees’ ‘Night Fever’. The latter, arranged and conducted by Michael Zager, reached the lower reaches of the Top 75 in the UK in mid-1978.
