The singer is Laura Branigan and she floored a receptive capacity house at Numbers in her first Texas appearance on August 29. Strong vocals throughout her 30 minute performance complimented her. outfit of taut black leather pants and boots— contrasted by a zebra-print top. While singing "Cross Fire," Laura pranced and her soft, translucent eyes shone directly into the crowd. After asking the crowd to move in closer and "Spend All Night With Me," she sang and lithely danced across the stage. Then she told the crowd "a story about a girl I know, who keeps following me." That girl is the fictional song heroine of her internationally-known dance hit. She said, "I know you know her name. Let's hear it!" The crowd shouted, "Gloria!" "You feel it in the Btudio when it's a hit," said the singer in a post-show interview. "Gloria fever," as Laura described it, was born five years ago when Italian songwriter/ singer Umberto Tozzi sold 30 million copies in Europe of his version of the song. Producer Jack White first brought the song to her attention after having experienced the "fever" himself when dancing to the original Tozzi version in a European disco. Laura "grew up around dogs, cats and chickens" at her parents home in Brewster, New York. She talked about her love for "animals, people and performing," but not neccesBarily in that order. "I want to sing, do theater, films and everything because I want to run the gamut," she Baid about her career plans. Laura sang on tour for three months, and that included, "three television shows and a special in Germany," as well as a performance in London. "It's a completely different market in Europe," she said, because, "Talent there is major if played (on radio) more than three times a week." Laura haB begun choosing material for her album to be recorded in October following her impressive first effort titled simply "Branigan," She describes her music as "Branigan Rock," and said, "The emotion is very important in my singing and I want to really reach out and grab the people." She did grab them as performer and crowd became one, dancing, unified body. "The audience is the other half," she said, and "It's just like being in or making love; it takes more than one." You may admire a performer who says of her career, "Everything has it's time, but I will do it all." Strap on your seatbelts now because rock sung by Laura Branigan is one incredibly musical flight.
