Hi girls, please tell us a little about yourselves?
We are Fourever1, bahamian quadruplets that have a passion for music. We are 21 years old, born in Miami Florida, raised in the bahamas and currently reside in Los Angeles, California.
Define your band in 1 word?
What’s your background?
How did you decide to form the band?
One day after school we went to burger king and Christina got the last backstreet boys CD from her kids meal. As soon as we put the cd in the car we fell in love with their music. We then started to sing to our grade 1 teacher. She used to pull us out of class to sing for her. It wasnt until we were 13 that we decided to take music seriously. Janelle first made up her mind at Rihanna’s concert in Miami, Florida. She turned to our parents and told them that that was what she wanted to do and the rest of us followed haha.
Where does the name “FOUREVER1” come from?
We came up with Fourever1 when we were driving from a studio in florida. Christina came up with it. She came up with it because its four of us and no matter what we will always be a unit.
