Rozalla

Rozalla (born Rozalla Miller on March 18, 1964 in Ndola, Zambia) is a dance singer from the early 90's.

Rozalla started her music career in the 80's in Zimbabwe and her singles were quite successful there and an English record producer, Chris Sergent took Rozalla to London in 1988 and started to manage her career.
In 1992, Rozalla released her debut album, "Everybody's Free" which peaked at #21 on Billboard's Heatseekers album chart.
Rozalla's well-known hit song, "Everybody's Free (To Feel Good)" peaked at #37 on the Billboard Hot 100, #14 on Billboard's Hot Dance Music\Maxi-Singles Sales chart, and topped Billboard's Hot Dance Music\Club Play chart.
The second single from the album, "Are You Ready to Fly" topped the dance charts again, making it Rozalla's second #1 dance hit. The song also peaked at #63 on Billboard's Hot 100 Airplay chart.
The last single from the album, "Faith (In The Power of Love)" peaked at #4 on Billboard's Hot Dance Music\Club Play chart.
In 1993, Rozalla released the song, "I Love Music" which was featured on the movie soundtrack to "Carlito's Way." The song peaked at #76 on the Billboard Hot 100, #18 on Billboard's Hot Dance Music\Maxi-Singles Sales chart, and topped Billboard's Hot Dance Music\Club Play chart.
The song was featured on Rozalla's second album, "Look No Further" which was released in 1995. The album failed to chart at all on the Billboard albums chart.

Rozalla released a remix of "Everybody's Free" in 1996 and it became her last UK Top 40 chart to date.
In 1998, Rozalla released her third album, "Coming Home" which flopped. The single, "Don't Go Lose It Baby" failed to make any impact on the UK or Billboard charts at all.

For the next 10 years, Rozalla released various recordings that met with limited success on club music charts. In 2002, another remix of her song, "Everybody's Free" was successful in Germany.
In 2003, Rozalla came back to the music scene on the single, "Live Another Life" which peaked at #55 on the UK Singles chart and another single, "All Or Nothing" was released in 2005 which was a moderately successful club hit.
In 2009, Rozalla released her newest album, "Brand New Version" that features a more jazzier side of her which has received critical acclaim. Rozalla has plans for a new album in 2010.
