In 1979 Pamala entered the Top Twenty Billboard Dance Charts with the EMI America release "This Is Hot". The song reached #13 on the Disco charts and received great acclaim in Europe, Mexico and South America. In 1983, Pamala's single, "I Don't Want To Talk About it," written by her brother, James Lee Stanley, also shot up to #13 on the Billboard Disco charts. This hit set the stage for shows like Dance Fever, American Bandstand and other television shows throughout the world. Her next single, "Coming Out of Hiding," was #4 for the year in 1984 on the same Billboard charts, and the video received extensive worldwide airplay on networks, including MTV and Showtime, and on shows like Top 40 Videos. In 1986, "If Looks Could Kill" reached top 20 in the Disco charts and was used in the Arnold Schwarzenegger film, "Raw Deal".

Then formed the widely popular Pamala Stanley Band -- the hottest New Orleans Boogie Band in South Florida with its Blues, Jazz and Boogie style. They released the CD "'Live and Cookin' " an upbeat, live, outdoor concert (available on Download).
Pamala left the band to go solo. She had longed to write originals, as well as have the freedom to explore her multifaceted styles of singing and recording. Once again, responding to demand for her music, in 2002 Pamala released "It's All in the Game" a recording filled with Jazz classics, which she recorded with the Eddie Higgins Quartet. In 2006, She released "This Is the Moment", featuring her most requested and favorite Broadway tunes, and then a compilation CD/DVD called "Looking Back: The Disco Years," which included 15 songs spanning her Disco career 1979-1989. In 2008, "Seasons of My Heart" was released. This CD was filled with original songs and had an Adult Contemporary feel. "Seasons of My Heart" takes the listener on a journey through Pamala's heart where subtle shades of Blues, Country and Pop tell a story of love lost, love longed for and love found. 2010 brought the release of a Contemporary Christian CD "I Am There" featuring her brother (Folk Legend) James Lee Stanley, and sisters, Sandra and Robin, along with her niece Kristina. Mostly written by Pamala and her brother James, it encompasses many genres of Spiritual Music. Pamala is currently working on a new Dance CD that is scheduled for a release in the summer of 2015.
