Yvonne Gage (born December 20, 1959) is an American singer from Chicago, Illinois. Active since the late 1970s, Gage has done background vocals for artists prior and after her own solo success. Her work as a session musician includes providing vocals for far "popular" and prolific music artists, including Stevie Wonder, Michael McDonald, The Doobie Brothers, Celine Dion, R. Kelly, Ashford & Simpson, Kem, Janelle Monet, and Kindred The Family Soul to name a few.[2]

Virginity (1984)[edit]

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.
