Many female singers have come and gone over the years in Beach music. One that is definitely here to stay is McCormick, South Carolina’s Rhonda McDaniel. She has had a continuous string of top hits in the genre over the last 7 years. Good Thing, You Got What It Takes, Why Am I Crying, Left With A Broken Heart, We’re Tight (with Angel Rissoff), Touching In The Dark, You Bug Me Baby (with Mike Taylor) and Lighten Up have all worked their way up the Beach charts. Rhonda has been the Carolina Beach Music Award Female Vocalist of the Year for the last 4 years running. Her self-titled Rhonda McDaniel release was voted as the best Solo Album Of The Year for 2008.
Rhonda has shown no signs of late of slowing down. One of the top songs from the recent Queens Of Southern Soul compilation over the last 6 months has been her rendition of Don’t Wait Around. Her just released album, Where The Boys Are, contains some new tunes that are potential hit makers as well. The title track is a must request at all of Rhonda’s live shows, Look Before You Leap has started up the charts and the Clifford Curry written Be Serious is getting major attention as well. Here’s hoping Rhonda and all her singing sisters from the Queens continue to provide us with great Beach music for many years to come!
