Lead singer Vernessa Mitchell quit after their second album because she felt the material she was performing went against her religious beliefs.

They had one Top 40 hit -- 32 fewer than the Supremes.

They were discovered by Berry Gordy's sister Gwen while performing in Pasadena's Bicentennial Performing Arts Program.
