In her youth Chaloner was awarded a scholarship by the BBC and attended a school for the performing arts, going on to spend several years in the UK stage production of Hair. In the mid-70s she went on to become half of the Spooky And Sue duo (who scored a novelty hit with ‘Swinging On A Star’). By the early 90s she had become a hit with the club cognoscenti via ‘Answer My Prayer’ and ‘I Wanna Thank You’, with productions offered by the 3 Man Island/ Band Of Gypsies team. ‘I Wanna Thank You’ namechecked black leaders Nelson Mandella, Marcus Garvey, Martin Luther King and Ghandi. She has been resident in Amsterdam for over twenty years, and appears live backed by her Soul Train team.
