Olga

Olga was an freestyle/dance singer from the late 80s. Not much information is given about her, but she was a member of freestyle music group "& More."
In 1985, Olga released her debut single, "Universal Dancer." It's unknown how or if the single ever made the Billboard charts at all.
In 1986, she released her second single, "Play Another Song For Me" which managed to peak at #47 on Billboard's Hot Dance Music/Maxi-Singles Sales chart.
Olga released three more singles: "I Won't Give It Away," "Power Play" and "It Happens Every Time" which didn't appear to make any impact on the charts. After that, it seems as if Olga has faded into obscurity. Nothing much has been heard from her since.

According to Billboard magazine issue from 13 October 1984 that article entitled "Original Music for Exercise Tape", it says that Olga's real name is Olga Mercedes.
