Biography

Horne was an only child and both his parents were school teachers. In 1971 he completed a sociology degree at Bethune-Cookman University in Daytona Beach. He later relocated to Miami to begin his career as a recording artist.

The peak of Horne's career came in the 1970s, recording disco and pop tracks for labels including Alston Records and Sunshine Records, a subsidiary of TK Records. Horne's biggest hit was "Dance Across the Floor", released in 1978, which was his sole R&B Top 10 hit single, written and produced by Harry Wayne Casey of KC and the Sunshine Band. "Dance Across the Floor" was certified double gold.

Horne's other Top 20 R&B single was "You Get Me Hot", released in 1979 on Sunshine Records. Several other of Horne's releases during this period were popular club hits, including "Spank", "Gimme Some", "Get Happy", and "Let Me (Let Me Be Your Lover)". His tracks also featured on Soul Train, American Bandstand, and some television sitcoms. Horne's last single to enter the R&B charts was "Is It In" in 1980.
