Evelyn Thomas (b. 22 August 1953) is best known for her song High Energy, which hit #1 on the Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart in 1984. High Energy also reached #5 on the UK charts in 1984 and #1 in Germany, in addition to becoming a major chart hit all over Europe.

The follow-up single Masquerade, released the same year, received heavy rotation in European clubs but failed to reach the UK Top 40. A number of unsuccessful singles followed, most notably Heartlessand a cover of the Supremes Reflections recorded in a Hi-NRG style; in addition to an album release, Standing at the Crossroads, in 1986.

In late 1987, the single No Win Situation shot to #1 on the now defunct UK Hi-NRG chart. Although best known worldwide for her Hi-NRG club hits, Thomas has also recorded and performed in disco, jazz, and gospel music styles.

Before her successful period in the 80s, she had also scored a chart hit in 1976, reaching the UK Top 30 with her single Weak Spot.
