I was searching online for famous singers of 1950s but that searching ended me to Oleta Adams and that also leads me to her song "Get Here." That stuck in my head and seems that I can't stop singing and humming the tune. I am so in LSS with the song that I can't help but press the replay button over and over again. And to break the monotony of my blog, here pasting the lyrics and embed You Tube of "Get Here" from her 1990 album's Circle of One. Among the songs of Adams are; I Just Had to Hear Your Voice, Everything Must Change, Rhythm of Life, Many Rivers to Cross, We Will Meet Again and Baby, I'll Come When You Call.
Oleta Angela Adams was born on May 4, 1953 (age 60) at Seattle, Washington, United States. Adams was the daughter of a preacher and was raised listening to gospel music. In her youth her family moved to Yakima, Washington, which is sometimes shown as her place of birth. Like many African American female singers, she got her musical start in the black church. Before gaining her opportunity to perform, Adams faced a great deal of rejection. In the 1970s, she moved to Los Angeles, California where she recorded a demo tape. However, many music executives were exclusively interested in disco music rather than Adams' preferred style. With the advice of her singing coach, Lee Farrell, Adams moved to Kansas City where she did a variety of local gigs. Adams started her career in the early 1980s with two self-financed albums which had limited success.
