Freestyle diva Lil Suzy was born Suzanne Casale in Brooklyn on March 1, 1979. While still a toddler she was discovered performing on Manhattan Beach, and at age five appeared live at the famed disco Studio 54; in the months to follow she became a staple of the New York City club circuit. At age eight Lil Suzy appeared on the syndicated TV series Star Search, and in 1991 released her debut album, Love Can't Wait; the record's first single, "Take Me in Your Arms," became a massive club hit, and she was named Billboard's Best New Dance Artist in 1992. After releasing Back to Dance in 1994, Lil Suzy formed Empress Records, at age 17 becoming the nation's youngest record label president; her first release for the imprint, Life Goes On, appeared in 1995. Paradise followed two years later, with Lil Suzy: The Megamix appearing in 1999. ~ Jason Ankeny, Rovi
