Dance pop diva Rockell was born Rachel Alexandra Mercaldo on March 4, 1977, on Long Island; discovered in a bar while singing along with a recording of "Killing Me Softly with His Song," she was brought to the attention of producer Ewart A. Wilson, Jr., who helmed her 1996 debut single, "I Fell in Love." After scoring a hit a year later with "In a Dream," Rockell issued her debut LP, What Are You Lookin' At?, in 1998. Two years later she returned with Instant Pleasure, which featured producers like Hex Hector and Tony Moran. ~ Jason Ankeny, Rovi
