Dawn Robinson on her album Dawn

Dawn Robinson (born November 28, 1968 in New London, Connecticut) is an African-American R&B/soul/Dance-pop singer mostly best known for her work as a member of hit Urban/Dance-pop group En Vogue. Following her departure from En Vogue in 1997, Robinson joined Lucy Pearl for a brief period of time from 1999 to 2001. Besides occasional modeling and background vocal work for Dr. Dre's Aftermath Records, Robinson also released a solo album entitled Dawn, released by Atlantic Records-distributed label Q Records on January 29, 2002. The song's single "Envious" only received light to moderate airplay on radio and video outlets due to lax support by the label. In 2005, Robinson returned to En Vogue who toured nationally while attempting to negotiate a new recording deal with The Firm Management for the original En Vogue. All four members failed to reach an agreement and Dawn decided not to return to En Vogue. It is rumoured that Dawn is currently working on her second album to be released on her own record label in which she has partnership with her husband. Image File history File links DawnRobinson. ...
