Pop singer and songwriter Carol Medina began her professional recording career with the release of "The Tears I Cry." The debut single hit store shelves in 1989. Throughout the '90s, Medina completed many other singles and a full-length album. Her works resulted in a number of hits and a couple of nominations for the coveted Juno Award in Canada.

Carol Medina was born in Melbourne, Australia, in 1966. Even before she hit her teens, the young beauty was stepping onto the stage as both an actress and a singer, many times combining both talents at one time. In the beginning of the '80s, her family decided to make a big move to Canada. Medina, not yet 20, went along. She found steady work there in the theater. She already had plenty of experience in performing when, a short time later, she began working and touring with the USO. It was around this time that she teamed up with songwriter James Collins.

In 1989, Medina released a debut single under the Marigold Records label. A few first-class singles later, and she landed a deal with Quality Records, where she recorded tunes like "Had a Dream," "You Never Done It Like That," "Let the Music Play," "Tell Me You Love Me," "I'll Just Say Goodnight," "Wait 'Til My Heart Finds Out," and "You Don't Know (Where My Lips Have Been)."

Carol Medina finally completed a debut album, Secret Fantasy, in 1995, also on the Quality Records label, which later folded. The offering contains a number of original songs, as well as some favorites made popular by other artists.
