Sequal

Sequal is a female freestyle\dance music group from the 80s that consisted of Angie Vollaro and Maria Christensen. The duo formed in 1984 by music producer Lewis A. Martinee.

The duo's first three singles were released on independent record label Joey Boy Records before being signed to major record label Capitol\EMI Records.
In 1988, Sequal released their one and only self-titled debut album which didn't appear to chart at all on the Billboard charts.
Their first charted single, "I'm Over You" peaked at #11 on Billboard's Hot Dance Music\Club Play Singles chart and #21 on Billboard's Hot Dance Music\Maxi-Singles Sales chart.
Another single, "Tell Him The Truth" peaked at #9 on Billboard's dance charts, becoming their biggest hit to date. In 1990, Sequal disbanded.
In 1993, Maria released her self-titled debut album on Atlantic Records. It's unknown how or if the album made the charts at all.
In the late 90s, Maria formed the short-lived pop/dance music group 3rd Party who were known for their singles "Can U Feel It" & "Love is Alive" and for their song "Waiting For Tonight" which was famously remade by Jennifer Lopez.
In 2004, Maria released her second album, "Beautiful Now" which is available on CD Baby and she sang the song "Someone To Someone" for the reality television show "Queer Eye For the Straight Guy."
In 2008, Sequal reunited and released the single, "My Love For You."

These days, Maria continues songwriting, has collaborated with various artists and is a part of the Bon Vivant Entertainment group. Angie continues to reside in Florida, but it is unknown what she is up to.
