En Vogue ‘Let Go’ In London

Performing on London soil for the first time in almost 20 years, R&B quartet En Vogue blessed the crowd at the Indigo O2 with a mesmerizing performance last week. The Funky Divas took the audience on a journey through their biggest hits, effortlessly belting out "Never Gonna Get it," "Hold On," "Whatta Man," "Love Don't Love You" and their biggest record, "Don't Let Go," among others. The group's return to the spotlight has famously been marred by label changes, pregnancies, Dawn Robinson's apparently insatiable demands and a revolving door of forgettable members. Despite their eventful past, the original lineup, of Dawn, Cindy Herron, Maxine Jones and Terry Ellis reunited again to prove that they're just as talented today as they were in 1992. En Vogue is one of the only female groups where every member could--and did--sing lead and they didn't disappoint here. Fans were also treated to a medley of Anita Baker, Donna Summer, Tina Turner, Chaka Khan and Aretha Franklin covers with each member singing lead on a different song. One questionable wardrobe selection aside, En Vogue was as youthful, energetic and on point as ever, their classic harmonies powerfully delivered with ease. There has been no word on new recordings, but this gives me hope for a stellar return to the music scene. Check out a shakily filmed but nonetheless nicely performed "Don't Let Go" below.

  1. The only girls group of the last 20 years I'd put down cash money to see. Style, class AND HARMONY. These girls were a force to be reckoned with, unhappy that internal pressures separated them, but glad to see them back together however I can get 'em. TRUE TALENT.

  2. They can still outsing any of the women in the music industry of the past decade and a half.

  3. I saw them live about 2 years ago and they sounded as fresh as they did in 92. Glad to see that it appears that Dawn has calmed down some & I'm hoping they'll release something new soon. They're my favorite female group of all time.

  4. Saw them here in Oakland last year and they put on one helluva show.

  5. It seemed like the backing track was louder than the group, or were they just lipping?

  6. Fabulous. Beauty, talent, voices wonderfully matched; and clearly distinguished from one another in personality. They just highlight the genius of Matthew Knowles who knew to surround his daughter with two dull lights -- who could nonetheless sing, but would never outshine his baby -- and choosing two brown girls was no mistake either.

  8. I actually wouldn't call Rhona Bennett, or their last album "Soul Flower" forgettable. That record was quite cool. But with Dawn Robinson set to leave AGAIN after this tour, maybe she (Rhona) can come back and they can finish that fifth record they almost had in the can with Bennett two years back. Love En Vogue through it all.-QH

  9. That was my gift concert. Pure music, pure woman, powerful and tight harmonies, great run and add-libs (especially from Cindy)... Highlight to me was 'Giving him something', Dawn can come and deliver this to me any time... Love all of them from Dawn with her natural lil girl's voice, Terry the power house, Cindy with her riff abilities and Maxime with her sexy alto contralto voice I felt blessed and want them back...
