Name of a dance song in English sung by Finnish singer in the late 90s? (Please Help. Musical Question)

I heard this uplifting dance song (which had no swing dance elements to it) at a dance club in the late 90s in Costa Rica. I've discovered intuitively that she's from Finland and is of Spanish descent in her 50s but since I only heard the song a couple of times, I don't know the name of it and it's been hard to discern the name of the song, let alone the singer's name. I'm not sure if that song was produced by Maki Kolehmainen, even if it was, I haven't been able to find any contact information of his. I've tried finnish forums but have no luck either. 

can remember a few words from the chorus that said something like "Closing in on that someone (or something)". If there are any musicians reading this, the chord progressions for the chorus (regardless if it was written in another key because a chord progression in Ab major will be the same in C major, the only difference is pitches).  So, the chords to the chorus are: C, G/B, Am, C/G, F, Fm, each chord lasting a measure with a time signature of 4/4 time. 

I hope someone can help me as I've been trying to find this song for so long and have no luck.  I will insert a video soon of my playing the tune on the piano to make it easier. 

If anyone who knows Maki Kolehmainen or who may know this song, please let me know. Thank you so much.
