Karen Young (March 23, 1951 - January 26, 1991) was an American disco-era singer best known for her hit, "Hot Shot." Young grew up in a Northeast Philadelphia, Pennsylvania rowhouse. Before becoming an international recording star with "Hot Shot," she recorded jingles and background vocals for the Philadelphia based production companies. In the early 1970s Young performed with the group Sandd, featuring Frank Gilckin (lead guitar), George Emertz (rhythm guitar), Frank Ferraro (bass guitar) and Dennis Westman (drums). The song "Hot Shot" peaked at #67 on Billboard's Hot 100 in 1978, after enjoying two weeks at #1 on that magazine's Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart, thus qualifying Young as a one-hit wonder. "Hot Shot" was written, produced and arranged by Philadelphians Andy Kahn and Kurt Borusiewicz, with Walter "Kandor" Kahn as executive producer.show more
