Madeleine Davis is a world-renowned vocalist born and
raised in Columbus, Georgia.
An ex-patriate residing in Munich, Germany and Palma de
Mallorca, Spain most of her adult life, Madeleine made her
mark in the disco-pop genre working with artists Englebert
Humperdinck, Sydne Rome, Rick Astley, Hoyt Axton, Peggy March, Amanda Lear; producers
Giorgio Moroder, Pete Bellotte, Sylvester Levay, Michael
Kunze, Leroy Burgess, Frank Farian, Anthony Monn, Pete Waterman, Horst Hornung, Ralph Siegel, and many others.
She has recorded in the German, Spanish, and Croatian
languages, appeared in “Sophisticated Ladies” directed and
choreographed by Mercedes Ellington, “The 1940’s Radio
Hour”, and many other music theatre revues.
Add teaching to her list of activities. Madeleine boasts of having The Nitro Girls as vocal
performance students, and is very proud to be an honorary
member of the Kiwanis Club International of Malaysia for
taking time out of her busy schedule to teach songs to
Malay children with Down Syndrome.
Madeleine was asked by the remaining members of the world
famous disco group BONEY M (Marcia Barrett, Maizie
Williams, and Bobby Farrell) to join the group replacing
the lead singer Liz Mitchell after backing the band for
many years. “I enjoyed my pop career and am very grateful”.
Influenced in her college years by Stanley Cowell and Jimmy
Heath, Madeleine sustained an abiding love of jazz by
working with top-notch German jazz giants like Klaus
Doldinger and Head, Heart, and Hands, and Grammy-nominee Jason "Malletman" Taylor.. "I had to slip some
jazz into my hectic schedule to stay sane!" The German
newspaper The Abendzeitung called her the Tina Turner of
Jazz,(which she does not think is true), and the Diario de Mallorca's G. Rodas said, "You must
have been miserable not fulfilling your mission and hiding
behind others. Now is your time!" Madeleine is also listed
in the archives of the Georgia Music Hall of Fame.
