Sylvia Striplin (born March 1954) is a New York based jazz, soul and R&B vocalist. Sylvia was the youngest of five children. After a fire destroyed their home on Sugarhill in Harlem, the family moved to the North Bronx in New York—there Sylvia honed her craft. Sylvia loved singing. She made up songs on the family piano and sang them around the house. She took piano lessons during her grade school years and performed in recitals. She began singing professionally with neighborhood friends, Gus Falcon and Malcolm Ballinger as a teenager. After high school, Sylvia attended City College in Harlem where she was praised for her performance in the College's production of Anything Goes. During the 1970s, Sylvia found work as a backup singer. In the late 70s she auditioned for the role of Dorothy in The Wiz and was selected as the second understudy with the New York Company. She was eventually selected to play Dorothy in the road company production, traveling to Miami, Chicago, Los Angeles and other cities, receiving excellent reviews along the way...
During the late 1970s, Sylvia became a member of Aquarian Dream and worked with funk, jazz, R&B and soul, vibraphonist Roy Ayers, in his group Ladies of the Eighties, recording one album with each group. Ayers signed Sylvia to his Uno Melodic record label where she recorded an album with him, an extended single of her own - Give Me Your Love, then her first solo album of the same name Give Me Your Love
