Gina rapidly became a gay icon, with fans queuing right around the block outside London’s G.A.Y. club to see her perform. Inside, 2,000 people would chant her name before her performances.
Then it all went sticky. Gina got caught up in a contractual dispute with Steve Rodway (Motiv 8) and ceased recording.
Her comeback was a mute affair, providing backing vocals on album tracks for Soda Club. Comeback attempts on ITV’s “Reborn In The USA” and in the 2005 UK Eurovision heats proved fruitless.
However, Gina retains a loyal following. Her return to the commercial pop arena came in October 2006, when club chart topper “Tonight’s The Night” received a full UK release via Gina’s Stuntgirl label. Whilst failing to trouble the top 40 (debuting and peaking at #57), Gina demonstrated that artists with a niche following could still enjoy support without the backing of major labels or radio play.
