I’ve always been a huge fan of Danity Kane. My love went beyond their tear-filled, she-said/she-said drama from Diddy’s “Making The Band” series that made them famous. Dawn Richard was always the standout star in my eyes. Despite Aubrey O’Day’s “look at me” star quality, Dawn’s unique vocal talents, unwavering work ethic and intense creative vision allowed her to shine bright.

Diddy noticed the glare and after Danity Kane’s demise, offered Dawn a spot in his group, Dirty Money. Once that era ended, Dawn was left standing strong as a solo artist.

With her own label, her funky sound and it-girl looks, Dawn’s releasing music on her own terms. With an EP, “Armor On” making its rounds in music lovers’ speakers, Dawn shares with her loyal fans–“The Hearts,” a behind the scenes look at what it takes for her to be a diva on the stage. Now that we see just how much of an amazing performer and musician Dawn is, we can’t wait for the release of her album, “Goldenheart” on January 15, 2013!

Stay tuned for #TeamBeautiful’s candid interview with the songstress!
