Artists,

The name En Vogue rings more than a bell. It invokes memories of a long line of red hot R&B and pop smashes recorded in the 1990s by Terry Ellis, Dawn Robinson, Maxine Jones and Cindy Herron-Braggs. Songs like "Hold On," "My Lovin' (You're Never Gonna Get It)," "Giving Him Something He Can Feel," "Free Your Mind" and “Whatta Man” featuring Salt-N-Pepa, are just a sampling of the megahits made famous by the Pop/R&B super-group.

Fusing style, sophistication, sass and sex appeal, the En Vogue formula was magical and the group went on to sell over eight million albums. In total En Vogue recorded five albums: 1990’s Born to Sing, 1992’s Funky Divas, 1997’s EV3, 2000’s Masterpiece Theatre and 2002’s The Gift of Christmas. There have also been several compilations released, including 1999’s Best of En Vogue and 2001’s The Very Best of En Vogue.

In addition to being featured on fuzzy Sesame Street star Elmo’s compilation CD Elmopalooza!, the group also appeared on the film soundtracks of Simply Mad About the Mouse, Why Do Fools Fall In Love, and Set It Off which produced the number one hit, “Don’t Let Go (Love).” Group member Terry Ellis also released a successful solo album, Southern Girl, in 1995.

Since En Vogue’s 1990 debut the ladies, whose collaboration was the brainchild of production team Denzil Foster and Thomas McElroy, set a standard for later female R&B and pop acts like Destiny’s Child and the Pussy Cat Dolls. While En Vogue may have been trendsetters for those who followed them, the group itself began receiving comparisons to The Supremes, especially after internal differences caused original member Dawn Robinson to exit the group in 1997. Fellow member Maxine Jones followed suit and left the group in 2001.

But unlike The Supremes, En Vogue never disbands. Instead, the group exemplifies the fortitude of Motown veterans The Temptations and continue to record and perform. Like The Temptations, the remaining original members Cindy Herron-Braggs and Terry decided to revamp En Vogue and added new member Rhona Bennett. En Vogue also finds fulfillment while on stage. Says the group, “It’s about connecting with the people. It’s about the energy you receive, the love, and the reciprocation from the message in the music.”

In the summer of 2007 original member Dawn Robinson reunited with the group at the Summer Festival in Tobago. The reunion was explosive and allowed the ladies to grab on to the essence of what originally made them awesome. The first televised taste of this new era for En Vogue that the public received nationally was at the 2008 BET Awards, where they performed a medley with Alicia Keys, TLC and SWV. Although they embarked on their musical journey over 20 years ago, En Vogue’s appeal is greater than ever before. From performing at NFL Super Bowl XLVI festivities to The Kentucky Derby, the girls keep adding unique and global projects to their already impressive resumé. In 2011, the girls visited and performed at a number of US military bases in Iraq.

This year the trio (Cindy, Terry, Rhona) are touring worldwide as well as embarking on some film and television projects. Having grown musically, emotionally, professionally and creatively, the ladies believe each day is a living affirmation to “Hold On to your Love.” These ladies love to sing, and they have no plans to ever let go!
