Shola Ama Biography
Shola Ama (born 8 March 1979) is a British singer from London, who scored her biggest hits with “You Might Need Somebody” (1997), a cover of Randy Crawford’s 1981 hit, and “Still Believe” (1999) which was one of the first productions by the Norwegian producing team Stargate.
At 15, Ama was singing to herself on a platform at Hammersmith tube station, and was overheard by Kwame Kwaten, a producer at the FreakStreet record label. In 1995, an unknown independent label released a single titled “Celebrate”, which was a ballad produced by D’Influence. Although the single was not a commercial success, it did draw attention to Shola Ama as an artist. On her 16th birthday, she signed a recording contract with WEA.
The single “You’re the One I Love” was her first single release for WEA in 1996; it barely made an impact on the charts, only managing to reach No. 85. Her second WEA single, “You Might Need Somebody”, remains her biggest hit. This Turley Richards cover reached No. 4 on the UK Singles Chart in April 1997. It remained in the top 40 for almost two months, becoming one of 1997’s biggest hits. A re-release of “You’re the One I Love” followed in August 1997 and reached #3. Her third single “Who’s Loving My Baby” was released in November 1997 and reached #13. At the age of 18, Shola Ama released her debut album Much Love (1997).
In May 1997, Shola performed her single ‘You Might Need Somebody’ at Wembley Stadium as part of the build-up to the rugby league Challenge Cup Final.
