Donna Allen launched her vocal career in the early '80s. The Floridian joined the band Hi-Octane and toured with them a year before leaving for the group Trama. She then formed Donna Allen & company and performed in the Tampa area. Lou Pace produced her 1986 debut LP Perfect Timing, which included the single "Serious" that earned Allen a number five R&B hit, plus the followup "Satisfied," which reached number 14, and a duet with Howard Hewitt on "Perfect Timing." Her 1987 LP Heaven on Earth had a remake of Maze's "Joy and Pain" that did well on the international circuit. Allen was also a cheerleader for the NFL's Tampa Bay Buccaneers at one time. ~ Ron Wynn, Rovi
