The eclectic songbird hatches the visual as she gears up for a unique reunion with Danity Kane bandmates Aubrey O’Day and Shannon Bex.
Together, the trio will be embarking on the ‘Universe Is Undefeated Tour,’ a US trek which will see them fuse together sets from Richard solo, O’Day and Bex’s Dumbblonde duo, and a finale comprised of DK hits and fan favorites.
