Sandy B: Dance Music Royalty
Sandy B (born Sandra Barber) is the voice behind one of dance music's most recognizable and most favorite dance classics of all time, "Make The World Go Round" which reached #1 on the charts in 1996.
Even before that, she reached number 1 in 1993 with "Feel Like Singin" and then again in 1997 with "Ain't No Need To Hide".
Sandy B has popped up in some odd places, having an on screen cameo in the movie Donnie Brasco and singing the title song in Disney's "Kronk's New Groove".
Arguably though, it's this song that is one of my favorite songs by her, if not, the most over-looked song. Released in 1999, I had the very lucky fortune of seeing her perform this at John Blair's Sunday night party at Limelight. She was fantastic!!!
Originally produced by Staten Island DJ Sal Dano, Nervous released this on 12" with mixes by Sal Dano, Robbie Tronco & Eddie Baez. The original Sal Dano version (linked here) is my favorite. Sandy's voice really shines in this one and I hope you like it as much as I do.
