Evelyn "Champagne" King

Born in the Bronx, New York in 1960, Evelyn had a showbiz lineage. Her uncle, Avon Long, was an actor, singer and dancer who first played Sportin' Life in the play Porgy and Bess and later starred in the '70s play Bubblin' Brown Sugar. Her father, Erik King, was a singer and often augmented groups that appeared at New York's Apollo Theater. By her teens, King had relocated to Philadelphia with her mother, and began singing in several groups. To make ends meet, King and her mother became cleaning women. For a teenager, King's voice was quite mature; many at first thought she was a grown woman. While working at Gamble & Huff's recording studio, she was "discovered" by producer T. Life, and went on to become one of the most popular R&B and disco singers of the late seventies and early eighties.

While she is best known for the disco classic "Shame", her Top 10 1978 Gold record, Evelyn scored an additional Top 40 hit and Gold record, with "I Don't Know If It's Right" in 1979. "Shame" and "I Don't Know If It's Right" were both tracks released from her 1977 debut album Smooth Talk.

Music Box, released in 1979 and Call On Me, released in 1980 were a pair of follow up disco and R&B albums to Smooth Talk, that featured many danceable tracks and soul ballads. She hit No. 1 on the dance chart in 1981 with "I'm In Love" (No. 40 on the Billboard Hot 100) and then topped that chart again in 1982 with "Love Come Down" (No. 23 on the Billboard Hot 100). She again scored an R&B hit in the late 1980s with "Hold On to What You've Got".

Evelyn has also made appearances on HBO's 1997 Sinbad's Soul Music Fest Part III and the "Vibe Show".

On September 20, 2004, Evelyn's signature song "Shame" became among the first records to be inducted into the newly formed Dance Music Hall of Fame at a ceremony held in New York's Spirit club.

Evelyn continues to perform onstage frequently. She is right at home in a club atmosphere encouraging the audience to sing along and dance to her old hits and new songs.

Hit Songs Include:

"I Don't Know If It's Right"
"I'm In Love"
"Love Come Down"
"Hold On To What You've Got"
