IAA: What is your music background?
VANDY B: I’ve been singing R&B seriously for about 16 years. Back in 2001, I joined an R&B group called “Marquee,” and we stayed together for a little less than two years. One member left, and another stepped in. We renamed ourselves “Vital,” and stayed together for three years. After that breakup, I decided to do for myself. I felt as though I could depend on no one but myself, so if I’m gonna do it, then I will do it myself. This is my dream, and I plan to fulfill it.
