Sandra Phillips sings her monster Blackpool Mecca anthem "World Without Sunshine". International singer and actress, Sandra Reaves Phillips was born in Mullins, S.C, sang in church and entered talent contests when she arrived in New York City. After performing in talent shows and singing in clubs around New York City, she signed with many Record labels including Sue Records, EPIC/OKEH Records and then Canyon Records as well as Dog/Mainstream Records. In pursuit of her dreams she studied acting and won a female leading role off Broadway in "Little Bit", gained critical and audience acclaim as Mama Younger in the Broadway musical, "Raisin". Sandra received a Drama League Recognition Award for Rollin on the T.O.B.A on Broadway. She co-starred at the Chatelet Theatre in Paris in the original production of "Black And Blue". Her numerous stage appearances include American Dreamsat the Negro Ensemble Company, Champeen, in which she starred as Bessie Smith, winning an Audelco Award for outstanding female performer, and the title role in the Citadel Theatre and Pittsburgh Public Theatre productions of Ma Raineys Black Bottom. Other stage appearances include Before it Hits Home at Arena Stage in Washington, D.C., Further Mo at New Yorks Village Gate, the national tours of One Mo Time!, Miss Moffat, Don't Play Us Cheap, and the Best Little Whorehouse in Texas.

Sandra made her Carnegie Hall debut in Cavalcade Of Stars and performed in the W.C. Handy Anniversary Tribute at Lincoln Center. She continues to tour in the her shows: Bold & Brassy Blues, Glory Hallelujah Gospel! and Late Great Ladies of Blues and Jazz. Originally, back in Late 1998, this was yet another legendary Northern Soul smash that we filmed for "The Strange World Of Northern Soul". This was first recorded in 1967 and then we recut it in 1998 when we were filming the documentary about the entire history of the Northern Soul scene. We tracked Sandra down to make this one time performance for our ground breaking Encyclopedia Britannica of Northern Soul, and I am so glad that we did.
