Throwback: Five Star-Let Me Be The One



Siblings Denise, Doris, Stedman, Lorraine and Delroy Pearson were considered the UK’s answer to the Jackson 5 in the ’80’s. Five Star also had a father for a manager and some of the Jackson choreography and sound. Luxury Of Life was their debut album in 1985 that did not catch notice until the early part of 1986. “System Addict,” “All Fall Down,” “Let Me Be The One” and “Hide and Seek” were popular and did well in the marketplace. Silk and Steel did not suffer any sophomore headaches and managed to produce more gold in the form of “Can’t Wait Another Minute,” “Find The Time,” “Rain Or Shine,” “Stay Out Of My Life” and “The Slightest Touch.” The states welcomed them and their music made them icons of the ’80s. Between the Lines was their third album and breaking point away from mainstream brouhaha as it fizzled chart wise. The group was resilient and kept recording music and released its last project in 2001. Despite making decent pop music they were never able to win favor with the industry machine again. Denise has performed in Thriller Live and recorded music for her solo project. Delroy has written and produced songs for Immature.
