Film footage was found by an archivist of an unknown girl group from 1964 practicing for their national debut. After several inquiries, granddaughters and other living relatives began to fill in the blanks. Infighting and conflict broke them up before they could achieve any amount of fame.
Some people had expressed surprise at seeing Dinah Jane. Out of the four, Dinah Jane had become the breakout star. She spoke little about her time in the early girl group, stating it was a valuable learning experience.
Reporters reached out to Normani, who quit singing afterwards to start a family. She said she missed when the group sang in the dive bars and had drinks afterwards to celebrate the show. They had been genuine friends at one point.
Lauren, though, hinted that there was one person who received more attention than the others from the producer. Unfortunately, it led to her resenting the person. Any concerns she had were dismissed by the him and she was penalized for speaking up for the rest of the group members.
Ally Brooke confirmed her relationship at the time with the producer. She really liked him. However, she went into it for the wrong reasons. She wanted to further her career. It had led to marriage. However, he later divorced for another now-famous singer. He had discovered another girl group and she knew once he stopped returning home, her time was up. She expressed regret at how it tore the group apart.
