Dana Dawson was an American singer who started her artistic career very early, at the age of 7, by participating in the musical Annie.
Her first single "Ready to follow you" was released in 1988, when she was only 14 years old. And for a first try, it's a masterstroke. The title is a real hit and explodes the notoriety of the young singer overnight.
Success confirmed, and amplified, two years later in 1990 when the single "Romantic world" was released, which was going to be even stronger than its predecessor in terms of sales. A title that will undeniably go down as one of the biggest hits of his career.
A year later in 1991, the album "Paris, New-York and me" was released, an album that was very successful, especially ... in France. Just like his new single "Telle me bonita", taken from the same album and which was also released in 1991.
It will take 4 years before his new album "Black butterfly", specially produced for the International, was released in 1995. The bet succeeded in particular with the global success of 2 singles, “3 is family” and “Got to give me love” which came out the same year.
All the titles that follow will not experience the same level of success and the great adventure will be snapped up on August 10, 2010 when the singer, then only 36 years old, dies prematurely from colon cancer.

1988 ... which will surely go down as one of the most beautiful Ultimate Slows of the decade. The shattering start of a young girl with more than certain talent and who obtained her first global hit from her first title. MAS-TER-FUL !
1990 ... not only does she confirm in the wake all the good that one can think of her but in more she obtains here the biggest success of all its career. A meteoric rise and well deserved. HU-GE !
1991 ... of course, she will not have left the biggest discography of the decade but each title released will have the merit of being of certain quality !
1991 ... new sweet break, an area in which she has excelled since the beginning. And my faith, once again, it all works pretty well. MA-GIC !
1992 ... the metamorphosis. A complete re-orientation in terms of style and sound. Unfortunately, a daring bet but a lost bet. All the potential that made its charm and its strength has gone up in smoke ...
1995 ... it will take her 3 years to go up the slope. A healthy comeback that allows her to return to success and reposition her on the niche that had made her successful a few years earlier
1995 ... when we see her again in its early days, we hallucinate as the physical metamorphosis is impressive. A necessary adaptation of course, but we go from one extreme to another ...
1996 ... and here she is in EuroBeat mode. She will definitely have gone through all the trends and all the styles. On this occasion, it would be rather successful, it is clear
1996 ... the last hit. And yes, already. Eight years after its sensational debut, the circle has come full circle and the attempt to stick to the standards of the moment has not borne fruit as desired. Pity...
1997 ... and this last title of the decade 90 will not change the situation. Anyway, a great adventure which will have all the same produced some hits which will have marked the musical history of this end of the XXth century. Many singers of her generation would be largely satisfied ...
2001 ... she will even attempt the transition to the 2000s. Unfortunately, despite an obvious quality, this title will go completely under the radar. When it doesn't want anymore, it doesn't want anymore ...
