Sylvester James (Los Angeles, September 6, 1947 – San Francisco, December 16, 1988), better known as Sylvester, was an American disco and soul singer-songwriter. Known for his flamboyant and androgynous appearance, he was often described as a drag queen, although repeatedly rejected such a description. Responsible for a string of hit singles, in the late 1970s, Sylvester became known in the United States under the moniker of the “Queen of Disco”.
“Someone Like You” is a 1986 dance single from Sylvester’s final album “Mutual Attraction”. The single was Sylvester’s second and last entry to reach number one on the dance charts, where it stayed for one week. The single also became his highest chart entry, since 1978, on the soul singles lists.
