"Are You Ready to Fly" is a 1992 single by Zambian-born singer Rozalla, from her album Everybody's Free. The song achieved a certain success in many countries, including U.S. where it topped the Billboard Hot Dance Club Play, but this success remained minor in comparison with her hit single "Everybody's Free (To Feel Good)".

Chart performance[edit]

"Are You Ready to Fly" first charted in the United Kingdom in 1992, reaching number 14. The song was also a hit in the rest of Europe. In some countries it had been the follow-up to her biggest hit "Everybody's Free (To Feel Good)", in others "Faith (In The Power Of Love)" had come in between.

The song was released in the U.S. as her second single in 1992. It bubbled under, but did reach number one on the Hot Dance Club Play chart.

Cover versions[edit]

The song was covered by German happy hardcore band Dune with reasonable success in Germany, Switzerland and the Netherlands. Jason Nevins remixed the song for his 2003 album.
