The Brat Pack was a vocal duo hailing from New Jersey, USA. Its members were Patrick Donovan (born July 26, 1958 in Passaic, New Jersey) and Ray Ray Frazier. Donovan had been guitarist for House/Gospel artist CeCe Rogers and Curtis Hairston. Ray Ray was keyboard player and vocalist in local NYC bands. The BratPack were produced by Robert Clivilles and David Cole who became the multi-platinum founders of C&C Music Factory.[1] Starting as a "house music" club act and after success with their first single, Clivilles and Cole felt that they had Pop appeal. They toured the UK and the US extensively and made many TV appearances including:"Soul Train", Club MTV" and The UK Music show "Hitman And Her". They released one self-titled album in 1990 on A&M Records' dance music subsidiary Vendetta Records, and released three singles, “So Many Ways (Do it Properly Pt. II),” "You're the Only Woman," and "I'm Never Gonna Give You Up." "You're the Only Woman" hit the Billboard Hot 100, peaking at #36.[2]
