In recognition of May being “Child’s Month“, Oldies Sunday will be highlighting a few child stars who made some noise in music. Today we go back to the 80’s with Recording Artist Little Kirk and his cover of the Tina Turner classic, “What’s Love Got To Do“! Produced by Winston Riley on the Stalag Riddim, this was released in 1984 and featured on the LP, “Original Stalag 17, 18, & 19“. Having gotten his start through the Sound systems in his early teens, Little Kirk could be found covering popular tracks with a dose of his distinct sound and delivery.
Since the release of “What’s Love Got To Do”, Little Kirk has went on to release numerous singles and albums, and became one of the main voices at the Patrick Roberts owned “Shocking Vibes” label along with his younger brother, Beenie Man. In recent years however, he has switched to releasing Gospel Music but still performs many of his previous singles when he’s on tour.
