The talented singers turned wives, moms, and entrepreneurs, will move in together, write new music, learn choreography, record an album, and put on a live performance. And they’ll have to do so in only 30 days and with none of them knowing who their bandmates will be ahead of time. 

The ladies will have to go beyond their musical and personal comfort zones to succeed as a team. An esteemed roster of music industry experts will drop in each week to prepare them for their big debut and deliver a chart-topping record, including music producer Kosine, choreographer Aliya Janell, songwriter Elijah Blake, and vocal coach Cynnamyn.  

BET Presents The Encore premieres Wednesday, June 9 at 10 p.m. EST/PST on BET and BET Her.
