When she was a teenager in the early 1980s, Lattisaw had a string of Top 40 R&B hits, with several songs— "Let Me Be Your Angel", "Jump to the Beat", "Love on a Two-Way Street", and "Miracles"—crossing over to the pop mainstream. Lattisaw recorded her first album for Cotillion Records at the age of 12 in 1979, under the direction of record producer Van McCoy. However it was not until she affiliated with Narada Michael Walden, a former drummer with the Mahavishnu Orchestra who was just beginning a career as a producer, that she found success. Under Walden's direction, she had five hit albums between 1981 and 1986. She also opened for the Jacksons Triumph Tour in 1981. From Lattisaw's 1982 album Sneakin' Out, Mariah Carey used a sample of the song "Attack of the Name Game" (R&B #14) for her 1999 #1 hit "Heartbreaker." Lattisaw continued recording into the late 1980s, signing with Motown in 1986. She scored her only #1 R&B hit with frequent duet partner Johnny Gill, titled "Where Do We Go from Here", in 1989. While the success was great, she grew increasingly disenchanted with the record industry. By the early 1990s, she decided to retire from the music industry and concentrate on raising her family. Since the 1990s, she has exclusively sung gospel music. Her official website stated that she was to work on a gospel CD. In 2010, Lattisaw's music career was chronicled on the TV One docu-series Unsung, in which she also appeared.
Lattisaw now resides in Maryland with her husband, Kevin Jackson Sr. They own a recording studio. Together they have two children, Kevin Jr. and Kayla.
