Many Worlds Are Born Tonight (1998) is the tenth album by American singer-songwriter Happy Rhodes.


Rhodes' first album on a larger independent label (Samson Music), leading to the All-Music Guide reviewer mistakenly describing this as her debut album.

"Roy (Back from the Offworld)" is the only Happy Rhodes track to have ever charted thus far (August 2007) - peaking at #42 on the Billboard Hot Dance/Club Play chart. 1
