Philadelphia born Lonnie Gordon won her first solo record deal with Supreme Records back in 1989. Her debut single was a cover of First Choice’s “Let No Man Put Asunder,” but it was her next offering that became her breakthrough. Written and produced by British hitmakers Stock, Aitken & Waterman, “Happenin’ All Over Again” was actually written for Donna Summer. The single peaked at No.4 in the UK upon its release in Jan. 1990.
The follow-up hit single “Beyond Your Wildest Dreams” stalled at a disappointing No.48 and not even the third single, “If I Have to Stand Alone,” managed to repeat the success (it peaked at No.68). Unfortunately, the debut album If I Have to Stand Alone never saw the light of day in the UK. In 1991, Gordon issued “Gonna Catch You,” produced by the Italo house act Black Box. The track was also featured in the Vanilla Ice movie Cool as Ice. That track made the Billboard Hot 100.
