Angela Winbush started out singing gospel in church and then became part of Wonderlove, Stevie Wonder's background vocalists. In 1980, she stepped into the spotlight as half of the R&B team, Rene & Angela. With partner Ivan "Rene" Moore, she released four albums, including A Street Called Desire, which boasted No. 1 hits "Save Your Love (for #1)" and "Your Smile." However, there was tension within the group and Winbush released several successful solo albums under the watch of R&B legend Ronald Isley, whom she later married.
