Jennifer Rush, whose real name is Heidi Stern, is an American singer who started her artistic career while still living in Germany in the city of Flensburg. Coming from a family where music is omnipresent (father an opera singer, mother pianist, brother musicians, one of whom is a saxophonist), she released a first album "Heidi Stern" in 1979 which was only very successful.
It was in 1984 that everything suddenly accelerated when a new self-titled album was released, this time under the name "Jennifer Rush". Album that really hits the mark and contains one of the biggest slows of the 1980s, namely the intergalactic hit "The power of love". It's a global tidal wave ! The singer's fame literally explodes overnight.
The 2 albums which follow will also record impressive sales scores. First "Movin" in 1985 and then "Heart over mind" in 1987.
As paradoxical as it may seem, the albums will work well but no single from these two albums will have the same fate as “The power of love”. The ones who do the best will be "Destiny" and "I come undone".
Other albums will be released later but without meeting the same enthusiasm as for the previous three.
To discover or rediscover.

1983 ... the first steps. After a first test without a future, here comes the first classified title. But only in...France. Come on, that's it already !
1984 ... a career that is still struggling to take off. With a success which is essentially limited to the Old Continent. Let's be patient, the best is yet to come, that's for sure !
1984 ... a beautiful year 1984 which saw the fame of the artist increase title after title. In particular thanks to this excellent title which finally opens the door to the Anglo-Saxon Charts !
1985 ... then comes the WONDER ! The title of a lifetime, which will definitely change the singer's destiny and make her One Shot fit into the musical legend of the 80s. An AMAZING title which will undoubtedly remain as one of the most beautiful Ultimate Slows of the decade and of this end of the XXth century. MAS-TER-FUL !
1985 ... the rest may seem a little palote compared to the previous gem. Especially since the singer plays it in Dance/Intimist mode, a musical mode of fairly relative effectiveness
1986 ... the artist struggles to capitalize on the enormous success that she had the previous year despite this piece of obvious quality. It's not easy to find the brilliant inspiration that can make a piece unique among all ...
1986 ... each year its Intimist title of big caliber. For the year 1986, it will be this one. And we can see once again that she is particularly comfortable in this area. MA-GIC !
1987 ... a year 1987 which saw her resume with more success than the previous year. And this time, it's the Dance mode that wins over the rest. Like what...
1987 ... when 2 of the biggest names of the moment decide to sing together, as very often, the result is necessarily up to the task. On a track that spins at 200 km/h. Hat's Off !
1987 ... the pass of 3 ! She aligns here a 3rd top hit which undeniably confirms her status as the flagship singer of the moment. At the height of its possibilities !
1988 ... as incredible as it may seem, this AMAZING title will not be classified. A new WONDER of extraordinary inspiration that literally floats in the air. Once again MA-GIC !
1988 ... we stay in the Intimist, his favorite field. This title will be classified. Certainly, it will not be the success of the year but once again, the singer is up to it !
1989 ... difficult to catch up with the leading pack. The singer continues to align the titles but the mayonnaise takes more and more difficult. A mixed end to the decade. And yet, she does not demerit !
1990 ... a change of decade that rhymes with switching to Ultra Dance mode. She had never ventured there until then. A title which works very well but which will not even be classified. Pity...
1990 ... no title classified in this year 1990 as incredible as it may seem. But where are the fans ...?
1992 ... a complicated decade to manage with increasingly rare successes. And yet, the quality is still there. But people's tastes have changed ...
1993 ... for the year 1993, the only success will be this one. More than 10 years after her debut, the singer clings and still believes in it. And us with !
1993 ... back to Intimist mode. Hunt the natural, it comes back at a gallop. Her trademark forever and in which she really excelled !
1995 ... a blank year 1994. We find her in 1995, in great shape, to say the least. The result is once again up to the task and allows her to record his last notable success. MAG-NI-FI-CENT !
1997 ... this time, it's well and truly the end. On the success side, at least. Other titles will come out later but will remain quite confidential. A magnificent career that ends smoothly, calmly ... Two key words that perfectly sum up the singer !
