Tracie Monique Spencer (who was born on July 12th, 1976 in Waterloo, Iowa) is an African-American R&B singer. She endeared herself to America by winning on Star Search in 1986, singing Whitney Houston's hit How Will I Know. Shortly after, she signed a record deal with Capitol Records and released her self-titled debut album in January of 1988. She found some success with the singles Hide And Seek, Symptoms Of True Love and her remake of Imagine (originally composed by John Lennon). Her second album, "Make The Difference", was released on August 27th, 1990. The first single, Save Your Love, showed an impressive standing at #7 on the R&B/Hip-Hop Singles & Tracks chart. Tender Kisses, one of her best known ballads, hit #2 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Singles & Tracks. The other singles, This House, This Time Make It Funky and Love Me, charted relatively well on The Billboard Hot 100 and the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Singles & Tracks. She began Columbus High School in the early-1990s. Although she decided to semi-retire from the entertainment business to live a normal teenage life, she still made a guest appearance on the hit sitcom, "Family Matters", in 1993 and recorded two songs (I'll Be There For You and Keep On) for the 1997 motion picture, "Good Burger". A compilation album, The Best Of Tracie Spencer, was released on March 15th, 1996. On June 29th, 1999, she fully resurfaced with "Tracie" and found moderate success with the singles It's All About You (Not About Me) and Still In My Heart. In the 2000s, she started doing singing/background vocals on Hip-Hop songs for rappers such as 50 Cent, Eve and Busta Rhymes. She acted in the short film, "A Tale Of Two Sisters", in 2004 and as of 2005, she's been hard at work on a new album.
