She was born in Washington – 9th out of 11 children – and her father signed her up for singing and dancing lessons in 1960, when she was 4: There already was an AMY Stewart registered with Actor’s Equity, so she changed the spelling of her name to AMII. She began attending Howard University in Washington, but soon left to work with the D.C. Repertory Dance Company, studying ballet and modern dance.
At the end of 1977, “You Really Touched My Heart” was Stewart’s first album.
In February 1979, she released her first and most successful single “KNOCK ON WOOD”, from her second album (with the same title). The song was the DISCO cover version of a 1966 song, that soon reached Number 1 in the USA charts (April) and then peaked within the top 10 all over the world.
