We continue here at stationfm.ning.com celebrating the life of another Black History Icon that we can relate to from our grass roots.  We call them "OUR HOME GROWN ICONS".....

OUR ICON FOR TODAY IS:-  Janet Kay
Janet Kay Bogle was born in North West London January 1958 and of course along with Caroll Thompson (who we will feature very soon) and several other big names, were the pioneers of British lovers rock.

 

Janet was discovered singing impromptu at a rehearsal studio by Tony "Gad" Robinson, the keyboardist from Aswad, who recommended her to Jamaican-born Alton Ellis, who had relocated permanently to London. Whilst continuing his career in reggae, he was looking for a female vocalist to record a reggae cover of Minnie Ripperton's hit song Loving You. In 1978 she recorded I do Love You and That's What Friends Are For. And then she released what was to become her biggest single of all time - Silly Games - written and produced by Dennis Bovell, released in 1979. Janet was the very first black British female artist to reach the top of the UK charts, making several appearances on radio and TV, including of course Top Of The Pops.

 

In 1981, Janet starred in the TV sitcom No Problem - the first black TV show which was created and conceived by a black theatre company. The show became a cult classic.

 

In 1990 Janet collaborated with Beats International (Norman Cook aka Fat Boy Slim) on their track Burundi Blues. Following this collaboration, Janet was invited to feature on Lindy Layton's version of Silly Games.

 

In the early 90's Janet, along with fellow actresses Judith Jacob, Suzanne Packer, Suzette Llewellyn, Beverley Michaels, Josephine Melville and the Late Joanne Campbell formed the highly successful female theatre company the Bibi Crew. All the shows were written produced and directed by the Crew.

 

Janet has been voted one of Britain's Top 100 Black Britains by the Evening Standard and she has also been presented with many awards over the years including, Silver Disc for Silly Games, Best Female Singer, Best 7" Vinyl Single and Best 12" Vinyl Single (1979), Memorial Disc in Commemoration of 1 Platinum and 2 Gold albums in Japan, presented by Sony Music Japan (1994), Women of Merit by Darker than Blue in Association with Barclays (2002), Contribution to British Black Music Industry (2001) and Outstanding Contribution to British Reggae (2009) to name but a few...
