Happy Birthday Alison Moyet.

Her mainstream pop career began in 1981 when she formed the electropop duo Yaz with former Depeche Mode member Vince Clarke. Yaz recorded two albums, Upstairs At Eric's and You And Me Both. The group was notable for melding Clarke's trademark electronic sounds with Moyet's warm, soulful voice.

In 1983 Moyet and Clarke decided to disband Yaz. Clarke went on to form Erasure, and Alison began her solo career, which continues today.
