AccuRadio Song Of The Day-Angela Clemmons

Artist:Angela Clemmons
Song:Give Me Just A Little More Time
Album:Disco Dance

Angela Clemmons had a top five dance hit with her 1982 cover of the Chairmen of the Board classic Give Me Just A Little More Time. Unfortunately, personal problems delayed recording a second album. And by the time she released it in 1987, she had lost all momentum and faded into obscurity. Angela has been a professional backup singer for years. Angela is from Norwalk, CT and she grew up singing in church. She was discovered by veteran producer Paul Leka and he got her a record deal with Columbia's Portrait label. Among other things, Leka wrote and produced Green Tambourine by The Lemon Pipers and Na Na Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye by Steam. He owned a recording studio in Bridgeport, CT and that's where Angela Clemmons recorded her album. Give Me Just A Little More Time was her second single and it reached #5 on the dance charts. I guess today it's considered a disco classic. Unfortunately, Angela's mom died in 1985 and she also got married and changed management. So by the time she released her 1987 album This Is Love, she was forgotten and it didn't sell. Both albums have been released on CD by the British disco music reissue label Funky Town Grooves. But you can get Give Me Just A Little More Time on this 3CD Sony various artists budget comp. Angela has been a backup singer since the 80s. She has recorded with Cyndi Lauper and Celine Dion among others. She is also a real estate agent and she sings mostly in church these days. Here's a video for Give Me Just A Little More Time by Angela Clemmons.
