Turn It Up!: Lisa Lougheed - World Love (Music Video)
I'm slightly perturbed right now, because I had planned to add Lisa Lougheed's video for her single "Love Vibe", which was an Ah-Mah-Zing song released back in 1992, but the up loader of the video on youtube has made embedding disabled, so... shit out of luck.
The next best thing, is the first single and title track from her second album "World Love" (1992).
Born in Etobicoke, Ontario, Lisa was a Canadian dance pop artist back in the early 90's (during the time when Alanis Morissette was still our little bubble gum pop princess) who originally came to prevalence as a voice actor for a popular Canadian cartoon show called "The Raccoons". Lol, that's Canada for you! Lisa voiced the character of, go figure, Lisa Raccoon and performed many of the cartoon's musical numbers, including the shows theme song "Run With Us" which was later recorded in full and released as her first official single from her album "Evergreen Nights", which was essentially a Soundtrack for the show.
After the success of the Run With Us single (which was nominated for a Juno Award), Lisa focused her sights on a music career and released the album World Love. The first two singles from this album (World Love and Love Vibe) were each nominated for Juno Awards in the category of Best Dance Recording.
After her third album, 1993's "Peace + Harmony", Lisa pretty much bowed out of the spotlight. The last time I saw her was when she was a backing vocalist for Oprah Winfrey, when she sang her own theme song "Run On" for the 13th season of her talk show and recorded a music video in which Lisa was featured.
According to Wikipedia (reliable, I know), she's now married with a son and resides in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
I don't need to explain away the song above, she says it all, "World Love not World War!" However, I'm adding a link to the Love Vibe video...think they can stop me, do they? Click Here!
