There’s something special about Fifth Harmony; something that sets these five young women apart from the plethora of flash-in-the-pan, one-hit wonder pop stars that burn fast and bright before fading into oblivion. Maybe it’s the undeniable talent, maybe it’s the unquestionable chemistry that made these girls fast friends, maybe it’s that they toilet-papered mentor Simon Cowell’s LA home as a birthday prank, or maybe it’s just that elusive something, the “it” factor that is propelling them down the fast-track to success.
Fifth Harmony builds on the monumental success of their debut single “Miss Movin On” and perform their first headlining tour at the Keswick Theatre on Friday, November 1 at 8 PM.
Fifth Harmony was born from a collection of talented solo artists who clicked first as friends during The X Factor Boot Camp, but quickly discovered an undeniable vocal chemistry together. Cowell decided that individual contestants Dinah Jane Hansen, Lauren Jauregui, Ally Brooke, Normani Kordei, and Camila Cabello were too special to let go, so at the end of the show’s Boot Camp week, the five young women became Fifth Harmony.
With their show-stopping vocals, undeniable charisma, infectious sense of fun, and genuine sisterly bond, the “fearsome five-some” (as they became known) endeared themselves to the judges and viewers across the country. Fifth Harmony delivered electrifying versions of Adele’s “Set Fire ToThe Rain,” Ellie Goulding’s “Anything Can Happen,” and Demi Lovato’s “Give Your Heart A Break,” and revealed their personal journeys to audiences week after week.
Since The X Factor wrapped last December, the group’s fan base has grown rapidly. The covers they post on their official YouTube channel (Rihanna’s “Stay,” Ed Sheeran’s “Lego House”) routinely rack up nearly a million views. Not only does Fifth Harmony trend worldwide nearly every week on Twitter, where the girls engage non-stop with their followers, but the group also draws thousands of female fans of all ages, who call themselves “Harmonizers.” The strong bond Fifth Harmony has forged with their audience will serve the group well as they begin to show the world what they can do post X Factor, starting with their debut single “Miss Movin’ On,” an epic, empowering pop anthem about letting go and being independent.
“Miss Movin’ On” is just a taste of what’s to come on Fifth Harmony’s upcoming debut album, Better Together out today, October 22 online and in retail outlets everywhere. Not stopping there, the quintet is readying a special acoustic and Spanish version of the standout EP, both of which will be available later this fall.
Fifth Harmony has quickly become one of the most-talked about acts in pop music. After debuting “Miss Movin’ On” live on The Today Show, the program received more tweets about this concert than any other performance all summer. The music video has surpassed 8 million views mark on YouTube/VEVO, while the song reached #34 on Top 40 Radio, and is continuing to gain steam. They’ve been handpicked to be a part of Disney’s “Next Big Thing” Campaign, MTV & Pop Tarts “Crazy Good VMA Concert”, and a performance on AllAccess.MTV.com prior to their VMA red carpet debut. Cumulatively, they have 70 million total YouTube views, nearly half a million Facebook “likes”, and over 750,000 Twitter followers.
Pop music is overdue for a girl group that can represent the young ladies of a new generation. Fifth Harmony is that group and their music, written and performed by teenagers is relatable, genuine, positive and inspiring for their teenage fans.
These five ladies, from five corners of our country and with five very different backgrounds have one very special thing in common: they were meant to find each other and become superstars.
