The voice of C+C Music Factory discusses the success, and controversies, surrounding one of the biggest hits of the ‘90s.
It’s been 25 years since we first heard the soulful demand, “Everybody dance now,” but throw “Gonna Make You Sweat” on today and it will still inspire crowds to do just that.
The winter of 1990 was a high point for Freedom Williams, and the rest of C+C Music Factory. They’d just released what would turn out to be one of the biggest singles of the decade, and were riding high, appearing on seemingly every radio station’s playlist, and on every music video show.
Their ride took a sharp turn, however, when it was revealed Zelma Davis, who was in the video for “Gonna Make You Sweat (Everybody Dance Now),” was not the woman singing the chorus.
Williams, having been there from day one, sat down with Myspace to talk about all things “Gonna Make You Sweat,” including the highlights, and the lowlights, and how he dealt with both. Williams also discussed his latest work, and hitting the road for the I Love The '90s tour. Hop to the next page to read the full interview.
