Alicia Myers Career
Myers began her music career by departing from her hometown, Detroit to Los Angeles, California in 1978. She started off her career in 1979 with the band Al Hudson & the Soul Partners by releasing the album “Happy Feet” as “Al Hudson and the Partners”; this record consists of the R&B hit, co-penned by Myers, where she has been featured on lead vocals named “You Can Do It”, which went viral and was a big disco hit. Consequently, the group swapped their name to “One Way featuring Al Hudson” and later, “One Way”. In 1981, with the release of the album “Alicia” by MCA Records, Myers began her solo music recording career.
Fortunately, her album attained a Billboard magazine R&B Albums chart peak of No. 41, and two of her successful hits namely, “I Want To Thank You”, released in September 1982, and “Don’t Stop What You’re Doin’”, released in May 1981 were featured. Later, in the same year, her follow-up album titled “Alicia Again” was released but failed to chart, unfortunately. In the year 1982, another album entitled”I Fooled You This Time” by MCA Records was released, which reached number 27 on the R&B Album Chart. After two years, in 1984, her another highest-charting album titled “I Appreciate” was released. This album reached number 12 on the R&B chart. In the following year, she did a single “Just Can’t Stay Away” in March 1985. Myers made a comeback in 2011 with her new album, named “Peace of Mind” by Love Town Music.
