Reed and Fears both moved to Atlanta, Georgia and met while in high school. Reed formed Blaque Ivory while Fears formed another group called Intrigue. Intrigue won a recording contract with Elektra Records, and Fears met up with Williams at a talent show while a member of that group. Fears left Intrigue to join up with Reed in Blaque Ivory and Williams joined the group shortly thereafter. Reed met Ronald Lopes while singing jingles to earn extra cash and he introduced her to his sister Lisa “Left-eye” Lopes of TLC. Lisa Lopes signed the group to her production company, Left Eye Productions. ~ Wikipedia: Blaque ~ retrieved October 2, 2013 © Wikipedia
