All-female singing groups are cursed with break-ups and/or seem to have a never-ending interchangeable lineup. Even with reality television shows molding the most recent groups into pop sensations (i.e. Danity Kane from MTV’s "Making The Band" and "The Search for the Next Pussycat Doll"), it seems like the right mix of talent, beauty and marketing still does little to keep girl groups together. The new remedy might just be a singing group whose foundation is deeply rooted in dance. Enter the ladies of Electrik Red, the Darling Stilettos and Nikki 16. These three girl groups are on the rise and have music spearheaded by top industry executives.
Electrik Red is signed to Def Jam and the roster is a who’s who of commercial dancers. I'd like to introduce you to Kyndra "Binkie" Reevey, Naomi Allen, Sarah Rosete and Lesley Lewis. These ladies have graced the stage, appeared in music videos and on tour dancing behind recording artists such as Usher, Chris Brown, Ciara and many more. Bruce Waynne, one half of the Midi Mafia production team raves, “Electrik Red is the freshest thing on the pavement. They are about to dominate the world!”
The Darling Stilettos are working with rock legends Nikki Perri of Shinedown and Matt Sorum of Velvet Revolver. The Darling Stilettos are Ace Harper, Gina Katon, Lindsey Thomas and Allie Cohen. Having performed with the Black Eyed Peas, Carmen Elektra and Shakira, these girls really know how to rock!
The rising sensation that is Nikki 16 showcases Alexandria Kaye, Christina Grady and Rashe Johnson. Having worked with Lady Gaga, Usher and Lil’ Mama, Nikki 16 is rumored to be opening for The Black Eyed Peas on the upcoming The E.N.D. tour.
Now, I may be wrong with my prediction of these dance-based girl groups lasting longer than others, but I am pulling for these dancers turned singers to make a path for other dancers. I’m sending a heaping dose of positive energy to these groups. I’d love to see them all stand center stage with top billing and command box office receipts. Go Girls!
