After the wake of Destiny’s Child disbandment, “Making the Band” winners Danity Kane seemed poised to quickly fill the trio’s “girl group” void. Armed with all the makings of a diva syndicate (i.e. – actual talent), the fivesome – comprised of Aubrey O’Day, D. Woods, Shannon Bex, Dawn Richard, and Aundrea Fimbres – flew to the top of charts on the wings of songs like ‘Show Stoppers’ and ‘Damaged’.
Despite their successes, the group barely made it out of album #2 before announcement their disbandment. And, while the likes of O’Day, Richard, and Woods all went on to varying levels of success, fans still longed for the full effect of the quintet.
Well, fans should long no more if reports that surfaced today are to be believed. Find out what we mean below:
“Four original members of the group — Aubrey O’Day, Shannon Bex, Dawn Richard, and Aundrea Fimbres— grabbed lunch today in L.A. with a new manager to discuss the reunion … and sources tell TMZ, it’s definitely happening. We’re told they plan to record and tour.”
No official word has come from any member’s camp, but if we can dare to dream, we are certainly hoping this comes to be. Not only is music in dire need of diversity given the absence of girl groups (or groups in general as far as R&B and pop go), qualitative performers who can actually bring style and substance to performances are needed even more.
If D. Woods was just absent or will be permanently absent from the rumored reunion has yet to be seen. All we know is that this needs to be a GO and soon!
