BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1979

DISCO FRIDAY!

France Joli (née France Joly) is a Canadian singer, born January 26 1963, who is best known for the disco classic “Come to Me.”

“Come to Me” is a #1 disco hit from 1979 performed by France Joli, who had recorded it at the age of fifteen with producer, Tony Green, who composed the song and briefly sings on it. The track also features the famed Philadelphia session vocalists, The Sweethearts of Sigma Sound. Introduced on the album France Joli, which was released in the US on 17 April 1979 on Prelude, “Come to Me” received a major boost on 7 July when Joli performed it as a last minute replacement for Donna Summer at a concert held on Fire Island, whose estimated audience numbered 5000. “Come to Me” began a three week reign atop the Billboard Hot Dance Club Play on 22 September 1979 and the France Joli album rose to #26. On the Billboard Hot 100, “Come to Me” peaked only at #15, a decent showing for a new artist, but also a symptom of the increasing disenchantment of Top 40 radio stations with disco music. The single also peaked at #36 R&B and #47 Adult Contemporary.
