No, your eyes aren’t playing tricks on you. All five En Vogue singers came together to pay tribute to Chairman and CEO of Epic Records Sylvia Rhone last night. More inside…

Some of you likely thought you’d never see this happen, but it HAPPENED!

Last night, En Vogue reunited. Yep, all five of them, including original group members Dawn Robinson & Maxine Jones. Yes, girl. It really happened.

The ladies put their differences aside to perform for City of Hope’s 2019 Spirit of Life Gala, which honored Epic Records Chairman/CEO Sylvia Rhone. City of Hop is a world-renowned independent research and treatment center for cancer, diabetes and other life-threatening diseases.

En Vogue’s public spats, lawsuits and drama has been well documented over the years. The original group consisted of singers Dawn Robinson, Maxine Jones, Terry Ellis and Cindy Herron. In 1997, Dawn left the group shortly before the release of their third album, EV3. In 2001, Maxine decided to leave the group as well. She was replaced by Amanda Cole. Then in 2003, Amanda left and she was replaced by Rhona Bennet.

 

 

For their 20th anniversary, Dawn and Maxine reunited with the group to head out on tour in 2009. Shortly after, Dawn and Maxine chucked the deuces again and Rhona joined the group as a trio.

Now, they’re all back together (at least for last night’s performance) for their 30th anniversary and we’re excited the ladies were able to come together to serve up an epic performance for music exec Sylvia Rhone - the woman who signed them. The Funky Divas performed several of their biggest hits, including “Giving Him Something He Can Feel,” “Free Your Mind,” "My Lovin' (You're Never Gonna Get It)" and “Hold On."

Is an En Vogue reunion tour on the way? We're keeping our fingers crossed.
