En Vogue 2006
As we all might have heard, the original members of En Vogue were supposed to have reunited for a reunion tour this year, but this plan only resulted in two performances. A performance with Salt N' Pepa on the VH1 Hip Hop Honors telecast, and a featured appearance on the song "So What The Fuss" for Stevie Wonder. Once again Dawn Robinson has vacated the premises, but the other girls (pictured above from left: Cindy Herron, Rhona Bennett (Dawn's replacement), Terry Ellis, and Maxine Jones), are going to carry on the legacy of the group by continuing to tour and working on a new album which they plan to have released by year end 2006/early 2007. I hope this record will make a bit more noise for them than their last release 2004's "Soul Flower" which made no headlines or buzz (I'm sure nobody has heard anything about that album). I saw them live with a friend of mine recently and they are very much the powerhouse group they were back in the day (in the vocal sense), despite their recordings to the contrary.
Dawn is also preparing for her second solo release.
