Yvonne Gage (born 1959) is a backing vocalist and a soul singer, mainly active in the 1980s.

Her work as a session musician includes providing vocals for far "popular" and prolific music artists, including Celine Dion, Joe Smooth, Gene Chandler and R. Kelly.[1]

Her only album Virginity, featuring cover showing mildly risque figures of the singer wearing a seal-fur coat, was released in 1984 under the independent Chicago International Music label. The album includes a song called "Doin' It In A Haunted House" which reached number 45 in the UK singles chart
