Evelyn Champagne Kings rise to fame and fortune in the music business is as close to a Cinderella story as you can get. The R&B and disco diva was discovered while singing at age 15 in the bathroom of Philly International Records, where her parents worked on the maintenance crew. When producer T. Life heard her, he assured the girl he would make her a star. And he did. Her 1979 debut single, Shame was an instant crossover smash and disco anthem. For the next decade, Evelyn turned out a wide ranging slew of hits including Im in Love, Love Come Down, and Betcha She Dont Love You, while establishing her reputation as a live performer who gave fans all she had. But those same high spirits left her vulnerable, not only to the slings and arrows of the music business, but to real life episodes of personal tragedy. Now, 30 years out and still going strong, Evelyn King reveals to Unsung the unvarnished tale of a showbiz survivor.
