Gwen Dickey first hit the spotlight with the hit records made famous by Rose Royce – a soul, funk and disco band formed by Motown writer/producer Norman Whitfield.
Gwen was born in Biloxi, Mississippi, USA and it is her stunning vocals that can be heard on all their classic hits from the 70’s such as ‘Car Wash’, ‘Wishing on a Star’, ‘Love Don’t Live Here Anymore’ and ‘I Wanna Get Next to You’.
In their twelve-year recording history, Rose Royce earned eight gold records and five platinum records. The band sold millions of albums, won a Grammy award and regularly played to standing-room-only crowds all over the world.
Gwen teamed up with international rap artiste JAY-Z for her hit ‘Wishing On A Star’. The record entered the UK charts at No.13, and went on to give Gwen her first solo top ten hit.
She starred in the musical ‘What A Feeling!’, featuring songs from hit movies and musicals including ‘Grease’, ‘Fame’, ‘Flashdance’, ‘Footloose’, ‘Carwash’, ‘Saturday Night Fever’ and ‘Mamma Mia’.
Gwen also has a solo career, lives in the UK and has collaborated with the likes of Cover Girls, KWS and Jay-Z.
She is currently touring with her band, which is billed as ‘Gwen Dickey’s Rose Royce’.
