Celebrating Our #1 Lady of House – La India

June 16th, 2011 by JACK | No Comments

For some it was one of those WMC nights where they wish they could be in a few places at once. For me there was no doubt. One of my favorite parties, Feel The Spirit, with a live performance by India was the place to be. Growing up listening to that familiar voice and having […]

#1 Ladies of House: India   Before we finally get to number 1, I’d like to thank a few other house divas that didn’t quite make my list.  Again, it was a list of personal faves and I can’t disagree with the exclusion of a lot of these incredible singers. Dajae, Inaya Day, Julie McKnight, […]

#5 Lady of House: Joi Cardwell The next and last 5 names on this list truly define the word, “legendary”.  And when it comes to the earliest memories of House music, one of the few tracks that stand out has a bit of an introductory exchange of dialogue: “Excuse me?  Charles?  My name is on […]
