Liz Mitchell, the lead singer of Boney M, was born in Jamaica and came to England at the age of eleven. When asked how she felt about the move from Jamaica to England she said, 'In my daydreams I saw beautiful big white houses with perfect green lawns and trees that were green and shaded, as it was in Jamaica. But arriving in England I was deeply disappointed; everything was grey, foggy and wet!'
Famous for her work with the disco group Boney M, this dance, pop, and soul vocalist also released such solo albums as No One Will Force You and Share the World.
She also briefly belonged to a group called Malcolm Locks that released a 1974 album titled Caribbean Rocks In the late 1960s, she performed in a German stage production of the musical Hair, replacing the Grammy-winning African-American singer Donna Summer in the starring role. Though known primarily as a singer, she also occasionally wrote songs for Boney M, including the 1981 hit "African Moon" (from the group's Boonoonoonoos album).
