At the core of my pre-teen heart was a burning desire to be a part of a show stopping girl’s group that could sing, dance, and collectively lift the roof off a place.
Girls groups are what I know and love. I grew up on En Vogue, TLC, SWV, Destiny Child, and so many more. But, the Lord politely asked me to have a seat when he was handing out killer voices and take what he gave me. So, here I am.
But, nostalgia was alive and well when I had the opportunity to talk with our next FAVORITE girl group, June’s Diary, during Essence Fest.
We were introduced to these ladies on the BET original docu-series “Chasing Destiny” in 2016, where they were handpicked by Kelly Rowland and Frank Gatson, Jr. to form a quintet of chart topping singers. Ashly, Brienna, Gabby, Kristal, and Shyann comprise this group, and they’re each stars in their own right.
In this episode, you will hear all about what they’ve been up to since the show aired, what they currently have in the works, the struggles they’ve had to overcome as a group, and so much more.
As a fan, I was GEEKED to have a moment of their time during such a busy weekend, and you can definitely hear that I enjoyed myself with them.
You can follow the group on all things social at @JunesDiary.
