Kelly Marie’s “Feels Like I’m In Love” hit the number one spot but after two weeks at the chart summit, Kelly Marie was dethroned by the Police hit “Don’t Stand So Close To Me”. “Feel’s Like I’m in Love” would go on to spend four months on the British chart, selling more than 500,000 copies and earning Kelly Marie a “gold” disc award.
Born Jacqueline McKinnon in Paisley, Scotland on 16th October 1957, Kelly first came to prominence by winning the television talent contest Opportunity Knocks on four occasion under the name Keli Brown and was subsequently signed by Pye Records in 1976.
One of her earliest singles for the label was Who’s That Lady With My Man. Whilst it missed out on the chart honours in the UK, where artists such as Tina Charles were established as the reigning disco divas, it powered its way into the charts across Europe, earning Kelly her first gold disc award in France. Follow up hits such as Run To Me (a top thirty success in the Netherlands, Make Love To Me (a number 2 hit in Australia and something of a club favourite in America and If I can’t Have You kept her name hot around the globe even if domestic reception was lukewarm.
