Music Minute: Kandi Burruss, 'Xscape And Real ATL Housewife'

May 17, 2017

 

Today’s Music Minute recognizes Atlanta singer turned reality star Kandi Burruss, who celebrates her 41st birthday today.

 

 


Burruss is featured on the hit show "Real Housewives of Atlanta." But before she was a reality star, Burruss grew up singing in church. She then became part of the singing group Xscape.

 

 


The group churned out six chart-topping hits, including this song, a cover version of "Who Can I Run To" in 1995.

Xscape was discovered by Jermaine Dupri in the early '90s and signed to his So So Def label. They released three albums, all of which earned platinum status.

After 18 years, the group — comprised of Burruss, Tamika and LaTocha Scott and Tameka “Tiny” Harris — have announced a reunion tour and new album.
