Anita wanted someone to ring her funny bell ...
Anita Ward is an American singer who made history with only one title.
But what a title : "Ring my bell" released in 1979, cult single and emblematic of the Disco period.
Originally, Anita Ward was a teacher before becoming a singer.
Producer Frederic Knight offers this song, originally planned for Stacy Lattisaw.
Song that was supposed to hit the teenage target, but Knight rewrote it with more daring lyrics (in fact, the song is about sex).
The singer is not very enthusiastic but records it anyway.
And it's a huge planetary success !
She will experience another success thereafter, meanwhile, more modest, with the title "Don’t drop my love".
She quickly stopped her singing career for lack of success to return to her first love, namely teaching.
To discover or rediscover.
Discography (among others ...) :

1979 ... the HUGE transcosmic tube which elevates her One Shot to the rank of planetary star. Here she signs one of the most famous titles of the late 70s and the 20th century. And who hasn't aged a bit. MO-NU-MEN-TAL !
1979 ... a continuation my faith very sympathetic. But how to compete with the previous gem, mission almost impossible. Race results : full unscrewing in the Charts ...
1979 ... a year which ends happily in style with a full DISCO title which allows her to return to success. But which will already be his last unfortunately ...
1980 ... welcome to the next decade, Anita adapts. No more Disco, long live funk ! But that will not be enough to stop its gradual disappearance from radars ...
1981 ... come on, a little last for the road. An adventure that only lasted a few years but left one of the biggest Dance hits in history
1989 ... not quite the last. She will attempt a final comeback at the end of the decade but this one will unfortunately give nothing. When it doesn't want anymore, it doesn't want anymore
