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 Doctors 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 Abbas 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.
