Pretty in Pink


Pretty In Pink were a multi-cultural R&B female group from the mid 90s whose members consisted of Milini Khan (born Indira Milini Khan and the daughter of singer Chaka Khan), Taniya Robinson, Tameika Chaney, Maurissa Tancharoen (born Maurissa Anne Tancharoen on November 28, 1975 in Los Angeles, California) and Shey Sperry.
In 1991, the group released their debut album, "Wake Up" on Motown Records. It's unknown how or if it ever charted at all.
The group's only song to chart was "All About You" which peaked at #96 on the Billboard Hot 100, #47 on Billboard's Hot Dance Music\Maxi-Singles Sales chart, and #28 on Billboard's Hot R&B Singles chart, staying on the chart for 13 weeks.
The follow-up single, "Dreams" was also released, but didn't chart at all. Due to lack of promotion, the group disbanded and had seemed to have faded into obscurity.

Today, Milini continues songwriting and recording back-up vocals. She has also toured extensively with the Daughters of Soul which is an internationally touring collective of successful female soul singers.

Maurissa Tancharoen works as an actress & television writer. She is married to television director & writer Jed Whedon. As for the other other members, it's unknown what they are up today.
