Lesley Wonderman, 7 March 1962, Baldwin, Nassau County, New York, USA. Dayne rose from obscurity to the top of the US pop charts in the late 80s and early 90s. Dayne listened to rock and soul music as a child and made her onstage singing debut at the age of six. In high school she took singing lessons and after graduating joined the rock band Felony followed by a new wave band called the Next, neither of which enjoyed any success. After finishing college she decided to go solo, and reworked a ballad called Tell It To My Heart into a dance number. Arista Records signed Dayne in 1987 and took the single to the US Top 10. Her next three singles, Prove Your Love, Ill Always Love You and Dont Rush Me also made the Top 10, although the album from which they were culled, also titled Tell It To My Heart, just missed the Top 20. On release in the UK, the first two singles both reached the Top 10.
