Fern Kinney – The Artist

Fern Kinney (born Fern Kinney-Lewis, 1949), is an American R&B and disco singer, who is best remembered for her releases, “Groove Me” and “Together We Are Beautiful”. In the early 1970s, she began working as a session musician and backing vocalist but stopped singing commercially and settled down to be a housewife. She attempted a comeback in 1979, first with a disco dance track ‘Groove Me’ and the a follow up “Together We Are Beautiful”. The was another disco song, but with a slower and more sultry beat. It reached number one in the UK Singles Chart. Kinney’s subsequent releases attempted to continue in the disco style, however by this time the disco fad had reached its peak and Kinney was unable to repeat her success. By 1983, she had returned to her earlier career as a backing vocalist.

Together We Are Beautiful – The Song

‘Together We Are beautiful’  is a popular song by Fern Kinney. Written by Ken Leray and produced by Carson Whitsett, Wolf Stephenson and Tommy Couch, “Together We Are Beautiful” was originally recorded by Ken Leray in 1977, while a 1979 version by Steve Allan peaked at number 67 in the UK Singles Chart.Kinney’s version was originally a B-side to “Baby, Let Me Kiss You”, but the song was flipped after DJs picked up on it. The song made number one on the UK Singles Chart for one week in 1980.

The Jigsaw piece – The Shape

This record has been modelled into a heart shaped jigsaw puzzle. Two pieces with the heart symbolising the togetherness. A jigsaw puzzle is a tiling puzzle that requires the assembly of often oddly shaped interlocking and mosaiced pieces. Typically, each individual piece has a portion of a picture; when assembled, the jigsaw puzzle produces a complete picture. Jigsaw puzzles were originally created by painting a picture on a flat, rectangular piece of wood, and then cutting that picture into small pieces. Despite it being called a jigsaw, a jigsaw was never actually used to cut it. John Spilsbury, a London cartographer and engraver, is credited with commercialising jigsaw puzzles around 1760. Jigsaw puzzles have since come to be made primarily of cardboard.
