Lisa Lisa hails from a large Latino family, as she is the youngest of ten children. She spent her childhood in her hometown’s neighborhood Hell’s Kitchen, and attended Manhattan’s Julia Richman High School. As a child, she began to sing in the church choir, and later started to expand her career through activity in high school musical productions. Parallel with that, Lisa also performed at one of the most popular dance clubs – called the Fun House – where she was spotted by Alex “Spanador” Mosely and Mike Hughes, and soon her professional musical career began.

The trio formed a band called Lisa Lisa and Cult Jam, in which Mosely was the guitarist/bassist, and Hugher was the drummer and keyboardist. The band’s debut album came out in 1985, entitled “Lisa Lisa & Cult Jam With Full Force” via Columbia Records, and became a complete success, achieving platinum status in the US and reaching No. 16 on Billboard’s Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart, which added a considerable amount to Lisa’s net worth. In the same year, she recorded the single “I Wonder If I Take You Home”, which topped Billboard’s Hot Dance/Disco chart, and went gold.

This encouraged the band to continue to work together, so two years later “Spanish Fly” was released, and it achieved platinum status in the US and gold status in Canada. The singles “Lost In Emotion” and “Head To Toe” peaked at No. 1 and went on to achieve gold, increasing further her net worth. Their third album – “Straight To The Sky” – came out in 1989, peaking at No. 18 on the Billboard Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart. Two years later came out their fourth and final album, entitled “Straight Outta Hell’s Kitchen”, but was a relative failure. Beside that, they also released five compilation albums, however, the trio disbanded in 1991, after which she focused on her solo career.

As a solo artist, Lisa released her debut album in 1994, entitled “LL77”, with such hit singles as “When I Fell In Love”, “Skip To My Lu”, among others, which added a lot to her net worth. Furthermore, in 2009 out came a full-length album named “Life ‘n Love” via the Mass Appeal record label, on which she collaborated with rapper Pitbull on the single “Can’t Wait”, but without any major success.

When it comes to speak about her personal life, Lisa has been married to Antonimar Mello since January of 2005; the couple has two children together. In free time, she is very active as a spokesperson for breast cancer awareness, as she had it and survived.
