Tucker’s induction into the world of music came in the early 90s at the hands of Tommy Musto and Victor Simonelli, who used her vocals on a range of their products. Her delivery and visual presence soon established her as an icon of New York’s gay/Hi-NRG scene. In the UK it was the soul/ house cut, ‘Beautiful People’, which utilised the ‘Deep Deep Inside’ hook from Hardrive’s track of the same name, remixed by C.J. Mackintosh, which gave her an audience. The song was produced by Lil’ Louie Vega, with whom Tucker runs the Underground Network Club in New York. The cast of backing singers reflected the esteem she is held in within that community, numbering Michael Watford, India and Ten City’s Byron Stingily within their ranks.
