Signed to Motown Records in the early 1970s as a result of her work with Chuck Jackson, she appeared in a minor role as a chanteuse in the film, Lady Sings the Blues. Fair then joined up with producer Norman Whitfield for a series of singles: "Love Ain't No Toy," "Walk Out the Door If You Wanna," and her cover version of "Funky Music Sho' 'Nuff Turns Me On." Her remake of the Kim Weston/Gladys Knight semi-standard "It Should Have Been Me" dented the lower end of the Billboard Hot 100 chart in 1976. The track also reached number 5 in the UK Singles Chart in February 1976, her only UK hit record.
