Today is International Women's Day! American author James Arena has posted on Facebook a photomontage of pictures of female artists that he interviewed for his books (First ladies of Disco, Legends of Disco, Stars of 80s Dance Pop and a forthcoming project). José Hoebee (formerly of Luv') is among these singers. She appears in "Stars of 80s Dance Pop" (see news posted on September 10th, 2015). What a fabulous way to pay tribute to these first ladies of Disco, Dance-pop and Dance!!!
