  1. I’m a bit surprised that Chrisette is doing this … I didn’t think she needed a platform like this. I mean she does not do huge numbers but she’s got a viable career. Interesting.

  2. WOW, this is interesting indeed. I’m a fan of both ladies, but I agree with “Love”, I wouldn’t necessarily expect her to jump on this ship seeing as how she has a pretty solid career already.

    In addition, this seems like such an odd casting. I’m a HUGE Chante Moore fan, but Chante and Miche’le are a good pair (due to the era that they came from-music wise), but Claudette & Lil Mo (compatitable musically), but all fo them together…..hmmmm, I’m not sure I’m here for this.

    Either way, I’ll tune in. They’re all beautiful ladies who have UNDENIABLE REAL singing abilities; so I’ll be there! 🙂
