Little interesting information about Vivian Reed except the fact that it is an American singer who will remain mainly in the musical history of this end of the XXth century for the single of big caliber "Start dancin '" released at the end of the 70s.
As such, she deserved this article.

1968 ... the first steps. All on a track that literally floats in the air and which shows above all that this young singer has potential, it's clear ...
1968 ... a potential which is evidently confirmed with this title. A beginning of a career that takes place under ideal conditions as they say ...
1973 ... here she is again a few years later with a light and airy title. A predisposition for the Intimist more than obvious !
1976 ... the musical which will literally explode its notoriety. The young singer passes in a sensational way in the big leagues and it is only justice !
1978 ... we go from one extreme to another. Going from Broadway to outright Disco is part of the big gap to say the least risky. A daring bet but a winning bet !
1978 ... the singer has a range of talents for the less impressive: Dance, Intimist, Musical. Rare to have all 3 in your bag ...
1979 ... the Disco adventure is in full swing and the least we can say is that we really feel her at ease in this area. Hope it lasts !
1981 ... a transition to the 80s which is done in Dance mode. The problem is that she has kept a very typical Disco style and that is likely to pose a problem for her for the future ...
1981 ... a talent for the Intimist who will have seen her produce titles of more than certain quality. And whatever the times and fashions in force ...

1985 ... she finally knew how to take the measure of the new trends of the moment. Everything has changed, the style as well as the sound. Unfortunately, this beneficial metamorphosis comes far too late ...
1986 ... almost 20 years after its debut, the circle has almost come full circle. At least for the music part because her artistic talents are multiple and will allow her to explore other areas later ...
