Milira is one of our R&B LEGENDS! SALUTE to our LIVING LEGENDS…
Milira Jones was born in Hollis, New York. She won amateur night at the Apollo Theater in the late 1980s, which led to a recording contract with the Apollo record label distributed through Motown Records. Jones was influenced by jazz musician Sarah Vaughn.
Prior to signing with Motown, Jones released her debut album in 1990, Milira. Her debut album spent 42 weeks on Billboard, reaching number 29 on the R&B albums chart. It scored two top 40 R&B singles, “Go Outside in the Rain” (#36) and a cover version of Marvin Gaye’s “Mercy Mercy Me (The Ecology)” featuring Noel Pointer (#21)
