Not just a one-hit wonder!
Most famous for her 1991 dance anthem Finally, CeCe Peniston wrote it as a poem whilst bored in a Biology class at high school.
Known for her singing ability, she started to get some session work as a backing vocalist, during one of the sessions they asked if she had anything of her own. CeCe pulled out her poem and came up with a melody. The studio guys “did the music”.
As they all believed they had a hit on their hands, they sent it off to the label she had done BVs for who quickly signed her. The single launched CeCe, getting in the top 10 worldwide, eventually selling 3 million copies.
Even though this was her biggest success, Peniston was no one-hit-wonder that went away, she would go on and release many more albums and singles since her debut.
Most notably, she covered Somebody Else’s Guy in 1998. The 1984 hit by Jocelyn Brown was actually produced by Jocelyn herself.
