Robin S, born and raised in Queens, New York, began singing at the age of five in a church choir. Blessed with perfect pitch and a genuine talent to entertain, she took up vocal training at the age of eight under the direction of the legendary Brook Alexander. Alexander, who also instructed Melba Moore, “made learning easy. His style taught me how to create different sounds by using my facial expressions and tones. It enabled me to obtain the skills to become a performer.”
“Show Me Love,” Robin’s first gold single, introduced her as one of the premier vocalists of the early 1990’s. The chart-topping single, punctuated with energetic remixes from Stonebridge Productions of Sweden, originally gained popularity in Europe on Champion Records. The success of the record caught the eyes of executives at Big Beat Records and Robin S was on her way to fulfilling her dreams.
Robin’s debut album on Big Beat/Atlantic Records, Show Me Love immediately broadened her fan base. The diverse sounds of the record, which changes between beautiful lush ballads and bold toe-tapping rhythms, were created by a variety of producers, including Junior Vasquez, Nick Martinelli, and David Morales.
In 1993, Robin was named “Best Dance Artist” at the Billboard Awards and “Show Me Love” received the award for “Best Dance Single.” Robin also earned the award for “Best Dance Artist” at the industry’s annual Winter Dance Music Conference.
