10 pop hit, at #6. In 1998, she released her debut album, Ready for
the World. She also released a cover version of "Ring My Bell" as
a single, though it did not receive much exposure.

She is often mistakenly credited for the track "My Boo",
performed by the Ghost Town DJ's which had vocals by singer Virgo
