Singer Joyce Sims Cause of Death: Latest Info!
American singer-songwriter Joyce Sims had a number one hit with “Come into My Life,” which peaked in the top 10 of both the US Billboard R&B Chart and the UK Singles Chart in 1987–1988.
Sims was born on August 6, 1959, in Rochester, New York. In college, she took formal music classes and picked up many instruments.
Sims signed a record deal with the now-defunct Sleeping Bag Records in 1986. Kurtis Mantronik’s production of “(You Are My) All and All,” which peaked at No. 16 on the UK Singles Chart in 1986, gave her her first successful record. It debuted at number 51 on the US Dance Chart and peaked at number six.
Sims released “Come into My Life,” which was also produced by Kurtis Mantronik, as a follow-up in 1988. It reached its highest point at No. 10 on the US Billboard R&B Chart and No. 7 on the UK Singles Chart. Despite being her lone top-10 R&B chart single, this was her biggest hit. Both “All and All” and her duet with Jimmy Castor on “Love Makes a Woman” made the charts.
Following the Top 10 success of the album’s title hit in the UK Singles Chart, Sims’ debut album, Come into My Life, peaked at No. 22 on the US R&B album chart and No. 5 in the UK Albums Chart. With the exception of “Love Makes a Woman,” Sims wrote all of the songs on the album. All About Love, the second album by Sims, debuted in 1989 and peaked at No. 64 on the UK Albums Chart.
Sims’ Sleeping Bag Records contract was assumed by Warlock Records in 1994, who issued the single “Who’s Crying Now” after acquiring the record company in 1992.
In 2006, she collaborated with record producers Junior Vasquez and Glen Frisica to release the track “What the World Needs Now is Love” from her album A New Beginning.
Come into My Life: the Very Best of Joyce Sims, a double-CD compilation of her biggest singles and remixes, was released in 2009. The first disc contains the original studio recordings, and the second disc has extended mixes. She established August Rose Records in the same year and got to work on a brand-new album.
Sims published the album Love Song in 2014, which features a duet with Maxi Priest, a reggae singer.
Sims’ music can be heard on the Species album, and Randy Crawford, Angie Stone, and Snoop Dogg have all covered or sampled her songs. Sims published “Wishing You Were Here” and another album, Back in Love Again, under her own record company, August Rose Records.
