Dance singer Paul Lekakis forged a brief career in the early '90s. Hailing from Westchester County, NY, Lekakis discovered his love of music by singing in church choirs, as well as music and dance classes during high school. Lekakis relocated to New York City as a teenager, to work as a model, all the while honing his singing and dancing skills. During a modeling assignment in Italy, Lekakis went out dancing at a nightclub, where he was discovered by a couple of record producers. A debut single followed shortly thereafter, "Boom Boom," which became a surprise worldwide hit (hitting number one in both Australia and Japan, and number 15 back home on the U.S. pop charts). Subsequently, Lekakis signed a recording contract with Sire Records, resulting in the 1990 debut, Tattoo It. Despite Lekakis' initial hit single, the album came and went without much fanfare.
