Biography

Oakland, California, USA (1989 – present)

Assembled in Oakland, California, USA in July 1989, En Vogue launched with original members Cindy Herron, Maxine Jones, Dawn Robinson and Terry Ellis. En Vogue is a Grammy-nominated all-female R&B, club/dance, and soul vocal quartet assembled by the hit music producers Denzil Foster and Thomas McElroy, formerly of the disco group Club Nouveau.

En Vogue has sold over 28 million albums and singles worldwide. They have won more MTV Video Music Awards than any other female group in MTV history, a total of 7 VMAs. The group was named the second most successful girl group of the 1990s and the 18th most successful act overall of the 1990s according to Billboard magazine.

Assembled in Oakland, California in July 1989, En Vogue launched with original members Cindy Herron, Maxine Jones, Dawn Robinson and Terry Ellis. The inspiration for the group came when production duo of Foster and Mc Elroy envisioned a modern-day girl group in the tradition of the 1950s/1960s female trios. The blueprint was based on the plan of recruiting singers who possessed strong voices, noticeably good looks, and intelligence. Auditions were held in 1988, with Herron, Jones and Robinson making the final cut. Like previous girl groups, En Vogue was originally conceived as a trio, but after hearing Ellis audition, Foster and McElroy decided to create a quartet. At first, they selected the name “For You.” They shifted to “Vogue”, but ultimately settled on En Vogue, upon learning that another group had already claimed the Vogue moniker.

    I don't know what happened to Dawn but she is mentally a hot mess on a SUNDAY morning. I really wish she didn't even go on the R&B Divas reality show, goodness. Still love them, though!

    @MeuzicAddict: I doubt LeToya, LaTavia and Ferrah were "set" after being kicked to the curb. I mean, LeToya and LaTavia wanted to change management to someone not related to Beyonce because they weren't "set" while in the group. I doubt when they left, it was much better. Anyhoo, seems En Vogue is just done. Which is a shame. I think the ladies should just give it up, because it's clearly not going to work out. It's best to just move on and hope for the best of their solo careers if they wish to continue recording music.
