Rozalla

Rozalla began performing at a young age in her native Zambia singing in clubs and at events; then at age 13, she was singing on a children’s TV show. While still in her teens, she relocated to Zimbabwe where she fronted various R&B cover bands before beginning her own recording career with a resultant five number-one hits on that nation’s chart.

In 1988, Rozalla moved to London to work with the Band of Gypsies, a production duo who with her, wrote and produced her most successful singles and her debut album.

Her first UK single “Born to Luv Ya” became a club hit in 1990, but Rozalla’s career took off when the dance anthem, “Everybody’s Free (To Feel Good)”, reached number 6 in the UK singles chart in 1991. The single became a Top 10 hit in many European countries soon afterwards and reached the Billboard Top 40 in the USA the following year. It was later included on her debut album ‘Everybody’s Free’ which made the Top 20 in the UK Albums Chart and went silver. The album produced two more big hits in “Faith (In The Power Of Love) and “Are You Ready To Fly?” reaching number 11 and 14 respectively in the UK Singles Chart.

In 1992 Rozalla supported Michael Jackson, opening all 43 of his performances on the European leg of his ‘Dangerous’ tour.

Rozalla showed a different side of herself with different styles of music on the 1994 album Look No Further, including work with music legends such as Diane Warren, the late Frankie Knuckles, and Jellybean Benitez.

From this album four more dance singles all reached the upper regions of the UK Singles Chart: “Never Love The Same Way Twice”, “Baby” and “This Time I Found Love”, plus her cover of “I Love Music”, a version that featured in the film ‘Carlito’s Way’. In addition a dance version of REM’s “Losing My Religion” became, and remains, a huge clubland hit.

In 1996, a remix of “Everybody’s Free (To Feel Good)” by the German producing duo Aquagen reached the UK Top 40. Her 1998 album Coming Home saw her reunite with the Band of Gypsies and spawned a stateside club hit with its lead single “Don’t Go Lose It Baby”.

In 2003 she entered the UK Singles Chart once again alongside Plastic Boy on the vocal trance single, “Live Another Life”. This track was included on the compilation The Best Of Rozalla which was issued soon afterwards.

A Global Deejays remix of “Everybody’s Free (To Feel Good)” reached number 7 in Australia in 2009 after it had been used as the theme song to So You Think You Can Dance, and Rozalla toured that country to support it with great success.

She issued the jazz/soul album Brand New Version in 2009, under the name Rozalla Miller, and Rozalla promoted the album by performing as the support act for Billy Ocean on over 50 dates on his sold-out UK tour.

Rozalla continues to perform in clubs all over the UK and the world, and in the summer of 2015 had a new song, ‘If You Say It Again’ in the U.S. Billboard Dance Club Charts for 13 weeks peaking at number 5.

Rozalla currently has a new single out for 2019 called Turn On The Light
