The Velvelettes

The Velvelettes were a 60's femal vocal group founded in 1961 by sisters Carolyn and Millie Gill with cousins Bertha Barbee-McNeal and Norma Barbee (both from Flint, Michigan) on the Western Michigan University campus, where they were students. The group signed to Motown Records, but weren't given top priority, as other female vocal groups were attracting audiences and recording hits. While the group awaited their chance at stardom, they recorded backing vocals for more established Motown girl groups, including The Marvelettes, Martha & The Vandellas, and The Supremes.

Sweet Female Attitude

Sweet Female Attitude were an R'n'B duo consisting of Leanne Brown and Catherine Cassidy both of whom came from Stockport in the UK, and are considered a one hit wonder in the United Kingdom. Their April 2000 single "Flowers" made it to number two in the UK charts, but the follow up, Eight Days A Week stalled at number 43. Sweet FA, as the name is commonly abbreviated to, were promoted as a 'more realistic' pair of British girls who refused to conform to the industry standards of being thin and well-toned, instead being happy with their figure.
