Susie Allanson (born March 17, 1952 in Minneapolis, Minnesota) is an American country music singer and actress. Susie was raised in Burbank and lived in Las Vegas from 1963-71. Before beginning her singing career in the mid-1970s, she toured as part of Jesus Christ Superstar and appeared in the film of the same name. As a singer, she released five studio albums and charted several singles on the Billboard and Cashbox country charts, including the No. 2 hit "We Belong Together".[1] She also had top ten chart success with a cover of Buddy Holly's "Maybe Baby" and "Words" by the Bee Gees. Her early albums were produced by Ray Ruff, her then husband. The couple subsequently divorced. According to a fan web site, "Susie does not embrace her past life as a pop/country singer....She is a born again Christian and her days now revolve around that." She later married musician Steve Williams. She now lives in California with her two children, Daniel and Amanda, and her husband.[2]
