Runaway Love

Ride The Storm

 
Linda Clifford is a multi-talented performer capable of working it from the beauty pageant to the disco floor.  As a youth, she was named Miss New York and began working as a professional singer during the end of the 60s.  Her first charting single was recorded in 1974, but her biggest success came on a series of disco classics for Curtis Mayfield's Curtom Records label in the 70s.  Triumphant jams like "Runaway Love," "If My Friends Could See Me Now," "Don't Give Up" and "Red Light" established her as the label's only disco artist, and a worthy challenger to Donna Summer's throne.  She continued working into the mid 80s before withdrawing from the spotlight.  In 2000, she signed with the legendary West End Records and began a comeback with the tasty club single "Changin'."   She collaborated with Joey Negro for one of 2001's biggest records, "Ride the Storm."
