DISCO FRIDAY!

Helen Reddy (born 25 October 1941) is an Australian-born singer and actress. She is often referred to as the “Queen of 70s Pop”. In the 1970s, she enjoyed international success, especially in the United States, where she placed fifteen singles in the Top 40 of the Billboard Hot 100. Six of those 15 songs made the Top 10 and three of those songs reached No. 1, including her signature hit “I Am Woman.” She also placed 25 singles on the Billboard Adult Contemporary charts. Fifteen of those singles made the Top 10 and 8 of those reached No. 1. She was the first artist to ever win the coveted American Music Award for “Favorite Pop/Rock Female” artist. She was also the first Australian to win a Grammy Award and to have three #1 hits in the same year.

In 1979 Helen Reddy released the disco hit “Make Love to Me” from her album “Reddy”. This was her only song to make it on to Billboard’s R&B chart where it peaked at No. 59. A year earlier in 1978, Kelly Marie had a pop hit in Australia with this tune where it peaked at No. 5.
