My Destiny (Maurice Joshua Chicago House Mix)
by Kim English
Kim English (1970 to 2019) was an American 'soul', 'gospel' and 'house' singer. Kim English was born in Chicago, Illinois, USA, on September 6th 1970, brought up there as the only girl alongside three brothers. During her career, she experienced singing success with a range of her musical numbers entering the US Hot Dance Music/Club Play, Hot Dance Singles Sales, Hot Dance Airplay charts and the UK Singles chart, beginning in the mid-1990s and continuing into the new millennium. Although her first chart entry on the Hot Dance Music/Club Play, "I Know a Place", came in 1995 it was only a moderate hit, reaching No. 32. Her actual debut single had been "Nitelife" in 1994, produced and written by 'Ten City'. Between 1999 and 2002, English scored six more hits in a row, all of which made the Top Two and five of which got to No. 1 ("Unspeakable Joy", "Missing You", "Bumpin' and Jumpin'", "Everyday" and "Treat Me Right"). All five of the hit singles mentioned were featured on her debut album "Higher Things", released in late 1998 on the New York City based record label 'Nervous Records'. "Unspeakable Joy" and "Everyday" went on to become her most successful radio hits, and the album also featured a cover version of Anita Baker's song "Been So Long". She had first begun her singing career as a 'gospel' singer and, even after she moved on from that genre, many of her most popular songs still contained references to God, faith and belief in oneself. By 2007, English had earned her sixth, seventh and eighth US dance No. 1 positions (with "It Makes a Difference", "C'est La Vie" and "My Destiny", the latter of which is featured in remix here). All three were from her second album, also titled "My Destiny" and released in late September 2006 on 'Nervous Records'. September 2009 saw the release of "Nothing's Impossible", a maxi-CD containing no less than 9 remix versions of that song. After being diagnosed with kidney problems in 2014, she had gone on regular dialysis and also onto the list for a kidney transplant. Sadly though, Kim English died from kidney failure in Chicago on April 2nd 2019, at the age of just 48. She is survived by her one son.

Hundreds of very talented musicians pass away each year, some without much recognition at all. On "Rest In Peace ✚", I aim to give them a fitting 'send-off', with a decent Tribute. I hope you will join me in marking their passing.....
