This will be a throwback night for the books! Formed in 1989 in the Bay Area, En Vogue began their official takeover in 1990 with their hit single, “Hold On” from their critically-acclaimed debut album, Born to Sing, which reached No. 1 on both the Dance and R&B/Hip-Hop charts. In their career, En Vogue has sold over 20 million physical albums. More impressively, they have transitioned effortlessly into the digital age, garnering over 30 million streams and 26 million plus YouTube views for their Top six singles alone, which, in addition to “Hold On,” includes “Free Your Mind,” “Never Gonna Get It,” “Giving Him Something He Can Feel,” “Don’t Let Go” and “Whatta Man (feat. Salt-N-Pepa).”
Doubling down on their En Vogue legacy has yielded tremendous fruit. Their Ne-Yo-penned, Curtis “Sauce” Wilson-produced radio single “Rocket” became their first Top 10 single in 20 years. To date, the video has nearly two million YouTube views. Their second single, “Reach 4 Me” hit the Top 20. The album itself on En Vogue Records, the label formed by Herron and Ellis in 2016 and distributed by eOne Music, reached the Top 20 on Billboard’s independent album chart. 30 years later, the evolution of En Vogue, now a trio with Terry Ellis, Cindy Herron-Braggs and Rhona Bennett, is still thriving.

Exposé started their musical journey in the mid-to-late 1980s, becoming the first group in history to have four Top 10 hits on their debut album, surpassing records originally set by The Beatles and The Supremes. In a time when rock and roll dominated the charts, Exposé brought dance music into the spotlight and music would never be the same. Exposé actively toured and recorded music from 1985 to 1995 while topping the Top 40, R&B and Adult Contemporary charts in the US and throughout the world. Along with their No. 1 smash hit, “Seasons Change,” Exposé became the first girl group to have seven back-to-back Top 10 hits on the Billboard Hot 100.
After taking over 15 years off to raise families, embark on solo projects and work with other artists, Exposé returned to recording and performing. Their first new dance/pop single “Shine On” was released in 2016 and has quickly become a crowd pleaser, lighting up dance floors around the world.
