Biography

The Cover Girls is a New York City-based Latin Freestyle, R&B, Dance-pop, Pop trio, the brainchild of music promoter Sal Abbatiello. In 1987, the trio consisted of Dominican-American Louise Sabater (who is also known as Angel Clivillés), Caroline Jackson and Sunshine Wright. They were the one of the first acts to bring freestyle music to the pop charts, having a string of moderate hits in the late eighties. Their debut album “Show Me” produced five Billboard Hot 100 chart entries: “Show Me” (#44), “Spring Love” (#98), “Because Of You” (#27), “Promise Me” (#40) and “Inside Outside” (#55). The album and its singles are considered early classics of this musical genre.

In 1989, Wright was replaced by Margo Urban and more hits followed. Their sophomore album “We Can’t Go Wrong” includes the lead single “My Heart Skips a Beat” climbed to #38 on the Billboard Hot 100. The ballad title track “We Can’t Go Wrong” became their first Top 10 hit, peaking at #8 on the Billboard Hot 100.

By 1992 the trio had more lineup chages: Jackson was the only remaining original member. New members were Evelyn Escalera and Michelle Valentine. Preceeding the released of The Cover Girls third album, “Here It Is”, they scored their second Top 10 hit followed (“Wishing On A Star” #9 Pop & #7 Dance) and “Thank You” (#75 Pop). The albums’ other singles are “Don’t Stop Now” (#63 Pop & #8 Dance) and by “Funk Boutique” (#55 Pop & #8 Dance) and “If You Want My Love (Here It Is)” (#8 Dance). “Don’t Stop Now” is noted as the first song to feature the lead vocals of Evelyn Escalera.
