Pepsi Demacque-Crockett has enjoyed a long and fulfilling career within the entertainment industry through the 80s and 90s, as part of the pop band WHAM! and later in the duo Pepsi and Shirlie. Her parents arrived in Britain from the island of Saint Lucia in the mid 1950s and settled in West London. She grew up surrounded by a vibrant Caribbean community with music as her back drop. She now lives on Saint Lucia, the country of her parents’ birth, but is still a London girl at heart. In 2021 she co-wrote a memoir with singing partner Shirlie Kemp entitled “Pepsi & Shirlie – It’s All in Black and White”, a story about friendship, love, loss and life in and out of the music industry.
