GWEN DICKEY

 

 

Gwen Dickey was discovered by Norman Whitfield, one of Motowns leading agents, who gave her the stage name Rose Norwalt and hired her as the charismatic female singer of the band ’Magic Wand’. The rest is music history, as the bands name changed, and Gwen became the voice of 70’s hit-makers Rose Royce.

No-one can forget their classic hits, such as ‘Wishing on a Star’, ‘Love Don’t Live Here Anymore’, ‘Is It Love You’re After’ and the unforgettable ‘Car Wash’, as Rose Royce ruled the discos for over a decade.In 1980, Gwen Dickey embarked on a solo career. She joined forces with KWS in 1994, and enjoyed a big hit with the Chaka Khan hit ‘Ain’t Nobody’.

In 1998, Gwen teamed up with International rap artist Jay-Z and together they recorded a brand new version of the Rose Royce hit ‘Wishing on a Star’ which was another Top 20 hit. In 2001 Gwen toured theatres with the musical ‘What A Feeling’ and continues to tour the world today performing Rose Royce’s legendary hits.
