Alaine Laughton, known by her first name, is a singer and songwriter. She was born in New Jersey, but moved to Jamaica at the age of three. In 1988, Alaine appeared in movie Clara's Heart along side Whoopi Goldberg. Through the late 1990's and early 2000's, Alaine has lived in the United States and has been songwriting and singing back up for Rocafella artists such as Cam'ron and Freeway.
She moved back to Jamaica in the summer of 2004 to focus on her own music after working as an investment banker for JP Morgan and Chase. Alaine later met with Craig "DASECA" Marsh, and started working with him. Their immediate chemistry provided Alaine with her first song on the radio within days of her arrival back to Jamaica. In 2005, the single "No Ordinary Love" on Don Corleon's Seasons Riddim was a breakthrough single in the Reggae scene, and Alaine was quickly praised for her special talents.
The single topped the charts in Jamaica and also charts in the UK. The music video topped the charts on MTV Tempo's Cross Caribbean Countdown for several weeks and became the first video by a female reggae artist to be retired from the countdown on one of Jamaica's biggest video request shows, E-Strip. Alaine has continued voicing tunes for the last few years for the likes of Don Corleone, dropping nice cuts such as "Heavenly" on the Heavenly Riddim and Sacrifice, her latest single. A music video for the single, directed by top Jamaican director Ras Kassa was recently released. ...show less
