WOW! I posted this question 20 years ago, and I've finally gotten an answer. I didn't know Chicas was Debbie Darby. Debbie worked with Roy under her real name on Tear To A Smile. It's great to know that she is alive, well, and still has that voice. I don't think she realizes the buzz there was around her. Everyone I knew expected her to be the next big thing, a la Chaka Khan. This is the only video of her that seems to be out there. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xc7DAOH-58E
If you have anything new or old, please share it with us Debbie! Your fans are out here, and there are more of us than you know.
