AccuRadio Song Of The Day-Sybil

Song:Don't Make Me Over
Album:Greatest Hits

R & B singer Sybil Lynch had most of her success on British dance floors in the 90s. This cover of the 1962 Dionne Warwick hit Don't Make Me Over crossed over to pop and was her biggest hit in 1989. She was born June 2, 1965 in Paterson, NJ. She started out in the mid-80s as a backup singer for R & B singer CeCe Rogers. Then she signed with Next Plateau Records which was also home for the very successful female rap group Salt-N-Pepa. Next Plateau owner Eddie O'Laughlin is currently a consultant on The Voice. Most of Sybil's success was on the dance chart. But her cover of the Burt Bacharach & Hal David classic Don't Make Me Over reached #20 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1989. Dionne Warwick had a hit with the song in 1962. Sybil also charted with her cover of Walk On By. In 1990, she signed with the British production team of Stock Aitken Waterman. Of course they are best known for the Rick Astley hit Never Gonna Give You Up. So they were hot at the time. She had success mostly on the British dance scene but even that success faded by the mid-90s. Sybil turned to touring the jazz festival circuit with guys like Tom Browne and Lenny White. And she has acted on the British stage. Sybil has recorded occasionally and her last album was released in 2009. This comp is a good intro to her Next Plateau recordings. Here's the video for Don't Make Me Over by Sybil.
