Cherry Laine is a Jamaican female disco star. Her father was a clergyman, her mother a nurse. At the age of six she is said to have been singing in her father’s church choir accompanied by her mother playing the organ. The family moved to England. The mother wanted her daughter to become a nurse and a midwife, what she did, but Cherry’s plans were totally different. She would often go to studios and stages in London in preparation for the career of a singer. After the deaths of her parents, she moved to West Germany. She started her career there with the help of her producer and composer Bernt Moehrle. Her first single was Everybody Knows It, but the big breakthrough came with Night In Chicago, which became a popular hit throughout Europe. The next hit came entitled Catch the Cat. This song became so successful in Spain that it had 8 different remix versions in Spanish and it reached a double gold record. Naturally, her first album was not to be waited for too long either and it came out with the title I’m Hot. The album features, among many others, Michael Cretu and Kurt Hauenstein from Supermax. Surprisingly, the first single hit, Everybody Knows It was not included in the album, unlike the above mentioned Catch the Cat, The Sea-Fare Folk and Speed Freak Sam that became very popular.

The Sea-Fare Folk includes a quotation of the well-known English folk song, The Drunken Sailor, which was performed at the beginning of the 1980s by the Dutch Babe and the German band, Dschinghis Khan, too. Cherry’s single of 1979’s Danny’s Disco was also often played by several radio stations as well as in music clubs. However, her career was also badly affected by the decline of disco music.In 1993 her three most popular hits Catch The Cat, Night In Chicago and The Seafare Folk were released on a maxi CD in the Golden-Dance-Classics series, which makes the greatest hits of disco music that are real rarities of today available for the fans longing for her songs.

When the contract with Bernt Moehrle expired, her husband, Karlheinz Merkel took over and composed and produced songs like "No more monday", "Waiting", "Al Capone", "Tragedy", "Oh I like it", and others at the Sarm studios in London with Julian Mendelson engineering. At the 1981 Viña del Mar International Song Festival, in Chile, she sang for Germany and won the first price with the song "Waiting", which was later covered in Spanish by Maria Inés Naveillán.

However, unfortunately,these efforts did not bring the absolute success, due to the change of epoch from the "Disco music" to the "Deutsche Welle"(Da Da Da). She then released "Jungle lover boy" with Rush records, "Faroe Islands", "Ninja Boys", with Skyline records and others. She also did cover versions of "Killing me softly" and "Muy guy".

Not as quoted above, Cherry has never met Chilly, but the lead singer from Chilly sang the choir on Cherry's album.
