Nuyorican R&B singer Tata Vega cut a few LPs for Motown in the late 1970s, but never burned up the charts.
For the past 25 years, Ms. Vega has been an active session vocalist, backing the likes of Ray Charles, Patti Austin, Melissa Manchester, Elton John, Julio Iglesias and Joe Cocker.
She’s also a “contemporary Christian” artist in her own right.
One of Tata Vega’s standout disco records was “Get It Up for Love” (1979). She sounds kinda Chaka Khanish on this track. Coincidentally, it was co-produced by André Fischer, Chaka’s old bandmate in Rufus.
(A further coincidence: Ned Doheny, who wrote “Get It Up for Love,” also co-wrote “What Cha’ Gonna Do for Me”... made famous by none other than Chaka Khan.)
Anyways... Viva Boricua!
