Kellee Patterson (born Patricia Patterson) is a 70's soul/funk singer. She grew up in Gary, Indiana and won several local talent contests with her Indiana neighbours, The Jacksons. Kellee won the female awards, the Jacksons won the male ones! All of these events happened when Kellee was five years old, however, by the age of sixteen, she was singing professionally. Kellee won the Miss Indiana Pageant in her home town. This led to several recording contract offers. After considering Motown, she signed to Gene Russell's Black Jazz Records label. Here she cut an album called 'Maiden Voyage', which was based around the Herbie Hancock tune. Following this release, Black Jazz decided to become a production company, so Russell signed Kellee to Shadybrook Records. Here Kellee recorded one album called 'Kellee' in 1976. That year she won a gold disc for the record 'If It Don't Fit, Don't Force It', along with awards as the 'Most Promising Female Singer' by Cashbox and Record World magazines. 'Kellee' was re-released in the UK in 1996, with her version of the Barry White tune, 'I'm Going To Love You A Little More', being highly popular.
