Jacci McGhee

Jacci McGhee (born in the Bronx, New York) was a female R&B singer who first achieved success after being featured Keith Sweat's  single, "Make it Last Forever" which peaked at #2 on the R&B charts.

She later landed a record deal with MCA Records, did a song with Salt N' Pepa called "Expresssions," and sang with rock music group, Toto from 1990 to 1992.
In 1992, Jacci released her self-titled debut album which peaked at #32 on Billboard's Heatseekers albums chart and #54 on Billboard's R&B Albums chart.
The first single, "Skeeza" peaked at #67 on Billboard's Hot R&B Singles chart in September of 1992, staying on the chart for 5 weeks.
The follow-up single, "It Hurts Me" fared better, peaking at #109 on Billboard's Bubbling Under Hot 100 Singles chart and #36 on Billboard's Hot R&B Singles chart in November of 1992, staying on the chart for 21 weeks.

Jacci's sophomore album was never released and she was dropped from MCA Records while she was pregnant with her first child.

Later, she signed to Elektra Records to do an album with a music group called The Family Stand. Their album, "Connected" was released in 1998.

Since then, Jacci has taken time off from the music scene to be a mother, but she claims to have something in the works. It's unknown what it is, but nothing much has been heard about it in a while.
