For the talented Dawn Robinson, the above two entities stood as her well deserved claim to fame for years- with the former responsible for one Triple Platinum album, and a place as one of Pop’s most celebrated vocalists.
However, as to reintroduce herself to a generation that may be unaware of her past successes, the beauty has signed on to star in R&B Divas spin off, R&B Divas LA alongside Kelly Price and Lil Mo.
…and that isn’t all. According to the show’s official release, she’s also readying the birth of a new girl group, ‘GLAMM‘.
On Dawn, R&B Divas: LA reveals:
“Dawn Robinson made a name for herself in the music industry as the youngest member of female R&B vocal group En Vogue. Known for their hits “Free Your Mind,” “My Lovin’ (You’re Never Gonna Get It)” and “Hold On,” En Vogue won seven MTV Video Music Awards – more than any other female group in MTV history –along with four Soul Train Awards and six American Music Awards. They also garnered seven Grammy nominations.
According to Billboard Magazine, En Vogue was the 18th most successful act of the 1990s and one of the most popular and successful female groups of all time, with more than 2,800 accumulated weeks on various Billboard charts.
After En Vogue disbanded, Robinson flipped the script and joined Raphael Saadiq (Toni, Tony Tone!) and Ali Shaheed Muhammed to release a one-off album under the group name Lucy Pearl.
Their critically acclaimed, self-titled debut went Gold and yielded hit singles “Dance Tonight” and “Don’t Mess With My Man.”
In 2002, Robinson married singer/songwriter Dre Allen and released her first solo effort, entitled Dawn. Robinson and Allen divorced in 2007.
Now single, with a divorce and several hit records behind her, Robinson is focused on releasing a book, forming another girl group, “GLAMM,” and taking her artistry to the next level.”
