Description:
Marcia Barrett (born October 14, 1948 in St Catherine, Jamaica), is one of the original vocalists with the vocal group, Boney M.

The early years

She was brought up in England and in the late 60s moved to Germany, where the creative environment was blossoming. She joined a band and toured with Karel Gott and Rex Gildo. In 1971, she signed to Metronome and made her first record, "Could Be Love", written for her by Drafi Deutscher. It sold poorly. She kept touring with songs such as "Son of a Preacher Man", "Oh Happy Day", "Big Spender" and another Deutscher composition, "Londonderry", later a hit for Boney M. as "Belfast".

The Boney M. years

In 1975, she joined Boney M. a group of models and dancers to make discothèque and TV performances of "Baby Do You Wanna Bump", a song recorded by producer Frank Farian. The single sold in the Benelux countries. When singer Claudja Barry left in early 1976, Barrett suggested a fellow Jamaican, Liz Mitchell, as replacement. Mitchell happened to be a singer and Farian tried her and Barrett for a follow-up. The recording was "Daddy Cool" and Boney M.'s first album Take the Heat Off Me, in 1976. After the German TV show Musikladen in September, the group was in the charts all over Europe, and a series of hit singles and albums followed over the next decade.
