1979 Yvonne Elliman – Yvonne

Yvonne Marianne Elliman (born December 29, 1951) is an American singer who performed for four years in the first cast of Jesus Christ Superstar. She scored a number of hits in the 1970s and achieved a US #1 hit with “If I Can’t Have You”. After a long hiatus in the 1980s and 1990s, during which time she dedicated herself to her family, she made a comeback album as a singer-songwriter in 2004.

A few minor Top 40 hits followed in 1979, including the title theme song from the film Moment by Moment and another disco track, “Love Pains”, which was a major club success. She appeared in a two-part episode of the television action series Hawaii Five-O during this period as an aspiring singer, performing the song “I Can’t Get You Outa my Mind” with co-star James Darren. The single “Savannah” was also a minor hit. Shortly thereafter she decided to dedicate herself to her two children.
