Terry Ellis

Biography

Terry Ellis began her music profession in 1990 while an associate of FOR YOU PERSONALLY, alongside Dawn Robinson, Cindy Herron, and Maxine Jones. The group later on transformed its name from For you yourself to En Vogue and documented a parade of R&B strikes. By the middle-’90s, the users of En Vogue required a three-year break from documenting, which offered Ellis an opportunity to record an recording of her personal, 1995’s Southern Gal, released on Elektra. Two of the singles became strikes: “Wherever YOU MIGHT BE” and “What Do I Do for you.” Dawn Robinson, who also proceeded to go solo, didn’t keep coming back, but Ellis as well as the additional two En Vogue users rejoined causes in 1997 to accomplish another recording, EV3.
