Coming to Pensacola to celebrate her birthday, Diva Peggy Scott graced her home town with her electrifying presence of singing all of her hit songs, including “Not Good Enough to Marry” from her latest CD as well as a collection of oldies but goodies.
Everyone in the house gathered around and tapped their feet, danced or clapped their hands as the Tina Turner style singer moved to the beat of the band.
Often referred to as, “The Little Lady with the Big Voice,” began her career in 1968, by collaborating with Jo Jo Benson to record three consecutive million sellers, “Lover’s Holiday,” “Pickin,” “Wild Mountain Berries,” and “Soulshake.” She later gained success as a solo artist by recording with several major record labels. Peggy has toured the US and Europe, playing such venues as the famed Apollo Theater, Madison Square Garden, The Howard Theater, The Spectrum and the list goes on. After moving to the West coast in the early eighties, Peggy married Robert L. Adams Sr., a successful politician and businessman and thus decided to take a temporary hiatus from her musical career.
In 1990, she was invited to do studio work with the late great Ray Charles. After recording demo material for another female artist, Peggy received another phone call from the “Genius” himself informing her that he could not resist the chemistry that he felt from her strong performance and would like to include the duet, “Back To Love” with her on his “Would You Believe” project. He could not resist calling her a second time to collaborate with him on “If You Give Me Your Heart” on his “Strong Love Affair” project.
Coming back to Pensacola is the first stop of the new tour she will begin. Her next scheduled appearance will be in Tuskegee, Alabama.
