En Vogue is a Grammy-nominated American female R&B vocal quartet assembled by music producers Denzil Foster and Thomas McElroy. As of last year En Vogue had sold more than 20 million albums and singles worldwide. They won more MTV Video Music Awards than any other female group in MTV history, a total of seven, along with three Soul Train Awards, two American Music Awards, and seven Grammy nominations.
According to Billboard Magazine they were the 18th most successful act of the 1990s, and one of the most popular and successful female groups of all time. En Vogue has spent over 2,800 weeks on various Billboard charts.
A live performance at the 2009 State Fair Classic highlighted the event. The hit group took center stage and dazzled fans from all ethnicities and ages.
The music icons, through very pressed for time, were able to say a few words about the show and upcoming tour. “We are excited about our comeback and were thrilled to do this show. We are always open to perform in general.”
“The road to stardom has been long and rough, but we are examples that it is possible to make it through,” En Vogue said.
The group itself began receiving comparisons to The Supremes, especially after differences caused Dawn to exit the group in 1997. Unlike The Supremes, En Vogue never disbanded. Instead, the ladies exemplified the fortitude of Motown veterans, The Temptations and continued to record and perform.
Today’s En Vogue includes Cindy Herron and Terry Ellis, original members. Maxine Jones, 1989-2001, 2003-present and Dawn Robinson, 1989-1997, 2005, 2008-present.
Despite the many changes, En Vogue is back and better than ever. The next tour date for the group is scheduled for November 8 at Club Nokia in Los Angles. Showtime begins at 7 p.m.
This timeless group will undeniably reinstate their position as music’s most prolific set of voices. When soul-stirring singing and pioneering rhythms take center stage, it can only mean one thing: the “funky divas” are back!
