Born Zulema Cusseaux in Tampa, Florida, U.S.A., she was a member of the Lovelles in the late '60's and early '70s.A Van McCoy-produced Lovelles single ('So Much Love') became a Top 20 R & B hit in 1971, but Zulema went solo shortly afterwards, recording a couple of albums for Sussex. She assumed her highest profile with a series of LPs for RCA in the mid-'70's, reaching the middle of the R & B charts in 1975 with 'Wanna Be Where You Are.' Her recording career ended after an album for LeJoint in the late '70's.

Zulema was a pioneer of sorts in that she was a '70s Black R & B singer who wrote much of her own material, and was able to assume some of her own production chores.

The records themselves were forerunners of urban contemporary music, occasionally reaching the lower parts of the R & B charts, Zulema's vocals betraying a strong Aretha Franklin influence.

After a second Sussex album, Ms Z (produced by Bobby Taylor, the singer signed to RCA records, where she released three albums: Zulema, R.S.V.P. and Suddenly There Was You. She was also one of the featured artists on the soundtrack to the Michael Schultz movie Honeybaby, Honeybaby, providing the track "I Just Can't Say Good-Bye." Her only charting record during that time was a cover of the early Michael Jackson Motown hit Wanna Be Where You Are, which reached #58 R&B. In 1978, she released the album Z-Licious on Le Joint Records, which featured a duet with long-term collaborator Van McCoy. McCoy also got Zulema on board for Aretha Franklin's 1979 disco album La Diva - having her write one of the songs and perform backing vocals on the entire album, joined once again by her former band members Hilliard and Bailey.
