What happened to Pebbles and Karyn White?

Isn't Pebbles Cherelle's cousin. Cherelle worked with Alexander O'Neal {Minneapolis Sound-Flyte Tyme} now wasn't Karyn White married to Terry Lewis? How come nobody sings anymore? Did Pebbles marry BabyFace? Where is Cherelle and Alexander O'Neal also? Do they still sing and perform?

Pebbles is now known as Sister Perry. She meddled in TLC's affairs for years and then finally left the industry to become a pastor. I, for one, am quite glad.

Karyn White was married to producer Terry Lewis,but I think they split up several years ago.She doesn't seem to be too active in the music biz anymore,which is a shame because she has a great voice.

Pebbles was married to Antonio "LA" Reid,who is now the man in charge at Arista Records.They had a few kids but then split up.She re-married.

Cherelle and Alexander still perform! I just read a recent interview with Cherelle and she mentioned that the two of them are currently on tour together (probably in Europe).Alexander released a new CD not too long ago.

Do you rememer that Pebbles/Babyface duet "Love Makes Things Happen" (1990)? I love that song!!

No,I don't .I only remember her hit Mercedes Benz. And also I believe it was Girlfriend. Her and Whitney Houston were supposedly Tight at one time.

2 funny! VH1Soul just showed "Romantic" by Karyn White a few days ago, I used to LOVE that song! Her voice was indeed nice, pretty strong. She fell off the map... sad

Pebbles did the right thing - 1 album (I think) & got out the game, worked the bidness end instead. She had to know her talent was limited, she looked like she was over it even then. I can't knock her.

On another note, the dude that was in the "Mercedes Boy" video - isn't he... erm, sorry... SHE a woman now? :O

Get on it, DavidEye! wink

Decent voices from cute chicks without their own material? We call this "flash-in-the pan"; and it flashed already.

At least, Pebbles knew enough about the biz to hook TLC for the big management contract. Normally, some smart-ass white guy woulda done it!

I had heard that Pebbles is Prince's cousin.
Is that true?

ROTFLMAO! I heard that song the other day and was wondering where she's been. It's good to hear that she's still singing. She has a great voice.
I'm not a fan of "old Prince". I'm not a fan of "new Prince". I'm just a fan of Prince. Simple as that
