b. Fiona Robinson, May 1976, Kingston, Jamaica, West Indies. Robinson was hailed as following in the footsteps of Marcia Griffiths, Judy Mowatt and Pam Hall. She initially found success when she gained three nominations at the 1998 Tamika Reggae Awards in the New Artist Of The Year category. Her triumph was due to the release of GÇÿI Could Fall In LoveGÇÖ. The success of the single led to the release of her long-playing debut, FionaGÇÖs Moment. This critically acclaimed release featured combinations with Brian Gold, Merciless and Teisha. Although the album was basically considered to be in a Jamaican lovers rock style she revisited classic rhythms such as Junior BylesGÇÖ GÇÿFade AwayGÇÖ and Slim SmithGÇÖs GÇÿRougher YetGÇÖ, and with Merciless she performed the dancehall -styled, GÇÿHave A Nice WeekendGÇÖ. Fiona maintained a credible profile when she released a series of hits including a cover version of GÇÿOops I Did It AgainGÇÖ, GÇÿHold OnGÇÖ, GÇÿYours TonightGÇÖ, GÇÿSkyGÇÖ, GÇÿEvery Little Bit HurtsGÇÖ and GÇÿLove MeGÇÖ, the latter of which was recorded in combination with Lukie D. In 2002 Fiona released her follow-up, Wanna Make Love. The album continued to demonstrate her eclectic approach to music in tracks such as the inspirational GÇÿPrayGÇÖ, the encouraging GÇÿRise UpGÇÖ, the romantic GÇÿTake Your HeartGÇÖ, and the quirky GÇÿKindness For Weakness Part 2GÇÖ that was recorded in response to Glen WashingtonGÇÖs similarly titled hit.Portions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
