Denice Brooks


During her fourteen-year stay in Europe in the 1980s and 1990s, Denice Brooks was on stage all the time. But she did manage to squeeze in some studio time. Three singles and one album were recorded and released. 


Purple Rain

"Purple Rain"

Denice Brooks’ interpretation of Prince’s “Purple Rain was recorded and released as a 12“ maxi single and a 7“ single in 1984, shortly after she moved to Berlin for the first time. Not only did she perform the song countless times on stage, but she also sang the third verse during a Prince concert in Berlin. The tune “Do Ya Want My Love“ is on the B-side.

"Show Me the Animal (in You)"

This was released both on a 12″ maxi single and a 7″ single in 1985. The song “Only Love“ was featured on the B-side.
