Kelly’s single “Bump n’ Grind”.  After touring and working with some of the greats such as Mint Condition, Lo-Key, Sounds of Blackness, and Prince, the group turned their direction to transition into another familiar arena… gospel music. After Titia moved back to Texas, she pursued a gospel music career singing background to strengthen her craft.
