"Nothing's Gonna Change My Love For You" by Glenn Medeiros.

OK, more 80's one-hit wonders: This Hawaiian singer/songwriter of Portuguese extraction is strictly considered to be an "80's one-hit wonder" as a soloist even though he topped the charts in '90 with "She Ain't Worth It", a duet with Bobby Brown. His solo hit was a Goffin/Masser composition originally recorded by George Benson in '84. At seventeen he won a local talent competition with his version of the song which he recorded on a small indie label, catching the attention of mainland DJ's. Peaked at #12 US in '87-'88 and topped the charts in the UK. He also recorded it in Spanish even though it was Argentinian Sergio Denis' cover that became extremely popular in Latin America. His two children are named Chord and Lyric (?!) Singer? Song?

Yesterday's answer: "Smoke From A Distant Fire" by the Sanford-Townsend Band. Always liked the vocals.
