The Cover Girls: The Cover Girls, a classic pop/dance group of the late 80's and early 90's whose glamor and beauty combined with musical talent have made them one of the most successful female groups of their time. The group released 4 albums, sold over 3 million records, charted 11 singles in a row on Billboard's Hot 100 singles chart, and have had international success all over the world. After a talent search of over 300 females, the group was formed. Their first single “Show Me,” was released in 1987. The single went gold, selling over 500,000 records and landed on the Top 40 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and reached 2 on the Billboard Dance Chart. The follow up album, of the same name, sold close to 1 million units and spawned four more Billboard Hot 100 singles including “Because Of You,” “Inside Outside,” “Promise Me” and “Spring Love”. This was the first independently released album to chart 5 singles on Billboard's Hot 100 singles chart from the same album. The Cover Girls phenomenon was growing. Along with concert performances, they appeared on every music and video television show on the air at that time. They were featured on Nickelodeon, Soul Train, Showtime at the Apollo, MTV, MTV international, and the Disney Channel numerous times. They had their proudest moment when they appeared on Dick Clark's American Bandstand. Meanwhile in Japan , The Cover Girls were taking over. The single “Show Me” was the #1 record in Japan during 1988, and the album went double platinum. They toured the country 4 times to sold out venues, and were requested to enter the world renowned International Tokyo Music Festival Competition. They won second place, beating out entrants from every country in the world. The Cover Girls' popularity in Japan that year also landed them an advertising contract for a commercial with Panasonic. After much negotiation, they signed a recording contract with Capitol Records. With Capitol they released their second album, “We Can't Go Wrong” in 1989. Their first release was “My Heart Skips Beat,” produced by David Cole and Robert Clivilles of the famed C&C Music Factory, which went Top 40. This brought The Cover Girls to six successive records charted on the Billboard Hot 100 Singles chart, a feat very few entertainers can claim. The Cover Girls then released the ballad, “We Can't Go Wrong” and that put The Cover Girls over the top. The single reached 2 on the R&R CHR chart trailing only Mariah Carey, and was the most played record on CHR radio, being played on 238 of 251 stations. On the Billboard Hot 100 Single chart, the single hit #5 and sold over 500,000 copies. The success of the “We Can't Go Wrong,” album led The Cover Girls to a major endorsement deal with Coca Cola and Sprite. They did numerous promotions including radio and television commercial in English and Spanish. At this time, another pop phenomenon was occurring, New Kids On the Block. The Cover Girls had been on a national tour of their own with Milli Vanilli , performing to sold out venues, and were chosen out of hundreds of groups, to be the opening act for the New Kids On the Block national tour. For over 20 weeks The Cover Girls performed before sold out arenas and stadiums of over 125,000 people per week. In 2010 The "Original" Cover Girls, Angel, Caroline and Margo reunited and are currently touring under the management of Latif Mercado. Sunshine Wright, also an Original member is set to rejoin the group as well. For more info on The Cover Girls contact La' Entertainment at 704-226-8900
