Premiere

Premiere were a female teenage R&B trio from the mid-90's whose members consisted of Lesyle Maninang and sisters Alisha & Gigi Florescea from San Jose, California. The girls met when Lesyle's sister married the Florescea sisters' brother in 1990 and they soon started a friendship. They would perform for their family and left a-cappella songs on their friends' voicemails.In 1996, Premiere released their self-titled debut album. It's unknown how or if the album ever charted on the Billboard 200 or R&B albums chart, but the album was #1 in Guam for seven weeks.
The only single released from the album was "Somethin' About You." It's unknown how or if the single ever charted at all. Premiere toured with Immature, Destiny's Child, Dru Hill, and Soul For Real. They've been recognized internationally in Japan and Germany.

In 1998, Premiere decided to take a break and continue with their education.
In 2002, the trio returned to the recording studio under the new name "Honey Luv." In Spring 2003, Honey Luv (formerly Premiere) were signed by Cudda Love and working on a new album. In 2006, Gigi released her solo album, "Sunrise" which is available on CDBaby. It's unknown when "Honey Luv" will release a new album.
