Leslie Wunderman (born March 7, 1962),better known by her stage name Taylor Dayne, is an American pop and freestyle music singer-songwriterand actress. In late 1987, she scored her first major hit when her debut single “Tell It to My Heart” reached No. 7 on the Hot 100. She then went on to have a string of hits in the late 1980s and early 1990s, including the No. 1 Billboard hit “Love Will Lead You Back”. Overall, she has had eighteen individual hit songs reach the top ten in Billboard magazine.
In the United States, she achieved three gold singles, with “Tell It to My Heart”, “I’ll Always Love You,” and “Love Will Lead You Back.” “I’ll Always Love You,” a change-of-pace ballad compared to Dayne’s earlier releases, was her breakout hit on the Adult Contemporary charts in 1988 and paved the way for future uptempo dance tracks such as “Don’t Rush Me” (1988) and “With Every Beat Of My Heart” (1989) to gain acceptance at Adult Contemporary radio.
“I’ll Always Love You” was the third single from her debut album Tell It to My Heart and gave Dayne her first adult contemporary hit and her first (and to date) only song to chart on the R&B chart. It reached number three on the Billboard Hot 100 on September 24, 1988.
