En Vogue

Cindy, Maxine, Dawn and Terry, four girls from Oakland, California, were one of the most successful acts of the 1990s. Their first music video for “Hold On” off their debut album, Born to Sing, featured the ladies in all black body-con dresses singing their hearts out. Both the song and the outfits became a staple for many female acts that followed. En Vogue is one of the top 10 best-selling girl groups of all-time, with 20 million records sold worldwide. Their sophomore LP, Funky Divas, showed that all four ladies could sing lead and still strike platinum with hits like "My Lovin' (You're Never Gonna Get It),"  "Giving Him Something He Can Feel," "Free Your Mind" and "Give It Up Turn It Loose." But it was their track on the Set It Off film soundtrack that they scored their biggest hit with “Don’t Let Go (Love).”  Shortly after, Dawn departed from the group making them EV3 but later they reunited for the BET Awards in 2008. The group still tours occasionally.
