Tommy shared some encouraging words about the girls on his blog this morning! (:
Back in 2004, sisters Destinee and Paris Monroe formed Clique Girlz with their friend Ariel Moore and by 2007 the group signed with Interscope Records. Within a few months they were booked to open for Raven Symone’s Summer Amphitheater Tour. Just one week after tickets went on sale the entire tour was canceled. Then in August, the group released their debut album, Incredible, in Japan and announced they would be joining the Cheetah Girls One World Tour in the Fall. During that time, Interscope prepped for their U.S. album release. Just one month after the end of the tour, Ariel Moore announced her departure from the group. The Clique Girlz debut album was canceled and they ended up quickly finding a new member who left the group after a couple of months.
In the middle of 2009 the sisters announced they’d make a run on their own and go by the name Destinee & Paris. After years of hard work Interscope gave them an opportunity this year on American Idol and the two were featured backing Scotty McCreery on his debut single, I Love You This Big. Since then, the duo have been alternating between the recording studio and dance studio prepping for their launch. Last night, Destinee & Paris taped their performance segment for an upcoming episode of Disney Channel’s So Random and then hopped on the red-eye flight to Grand Rapids, MI where they’ll be joining the Britney Spears Femme Fatale Tour tonight.
Here’s to the dream… and never giving up. Tonight, you’re going to shine!
