En Vogue is joining the elite group of legendary artists to perform on the hit ABC’s summer music series, Greatest Hits. The series, hosted by comedian, Arsenio Hall, features new and veteran acts performing songs from the 1980s, 90s, and 00s. The group will perform “Free Your Mind” supported by, June’s Diary, whom En Vogue mentored during season one of the BET reality TV docu-series, Chasing Destiny, executive produced and hosted by Kelly Rowland of Destiny Child. En Vogue Greatest Hits episode scheduled to air on July 21st at 9 pm EST on local ABC affiliate stations.
Whether it’s old-school soul or challenging prejudice and racism with such songs as “Free Your Mind” the group has consistently stayed relevant and known for their stirring performances. “We find total freedom and fulfillment when we hit the stage. It’s the ultimate connection with our fans,” says En Vogue’s Cindy Herron-Braggs.
With 20 million albums sold, multiple Grammy nominations, American Music Awards and Soul Train awards, En Vogue is considered the “ultimate” girl group of the 90s. “We were honored to be invited to be a part of the Greatest Hits series and loved the idea of collaborations; having worked with June’s Diary, it was really rewarding to see how far they’ve grown,” adds Terry Ellis of En Vogue.
“We find total freedom and fulfillment when we hit the stage.”
“June’s Diary first major network performance will be the Greatest Hits performance,” Rowland shares of the excitement. “For them to share the stage with the ‘Real Funky Divas’ it’s truly a humbling experience and has shown the girls what they can accomplish with hard work and dedication. Thank you En Vogue, this is just the beginning for June’s Diary and I can’t wait for the world to witness their journey.”
Now celebrating 25 years in the business, En Vogue has sustained their unique look and sound; redefining the idea of beauty, music and style with members, Braggs, Ellis, and Rhona Bennett. Recently, the group shared their new song, Déjà vu, from their forthcoming release, Electric Café, being streamed via music services, SoundCloud, Pandora, and Spotify. In addition, Déjà vu is available for purchase on iTunes and Google Play. Musically, Déjà vu evokes memories and pays homage to the sounds of 1960s R&B, with the visceral and precise harmonies that are synonymous with En Vogue.
