En Vogue; Terry Ellis, Dawn Robinson, Maxine Jones and Cindy Herron-Braggs. The name rings more than a bell. It invokes memories of a long line of red-hot R&B and pop smashes recorded in the 1990s. 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 mega hits 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.”
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 exemplified the fortitude of Motown veterans the Temptations and continued 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.
This year, 2012, 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, “…Hold On to your Love” and these ladies love to sing - they have no plans to ever let go.
