Tommy2.net reports Ariel Moore has left the Clique Girlz and their management, apparently with hopes to launch a solo career. Ariel was part of a pop trio that included sisters Destinee and Paris Monroe, and some had complained in their Clique Girlz TV spots that Ariel didn’t get a chance to say much as the sibling bandmates dominated the conversations. The group, which formed in 2004, released their full-length debut ‘Incredible’ in Japan back in August, but Interscope Records still hasn’t released the CD in the U.S. Read more.
Update: Tommy2 now has a scan of an Interscope casting release auditioning a new member for the Clique Girlz following the reported departure of Ariel Moore. The audition takes place on Saturday (January 31) in Burbank, California.
Clique Girlz Discuss Japan, Friends & 3-Part Harmony
January 3, 2009 – andPOP caught up with the Ariel Moore, Destinee and Paris Monroe of Clique Girlz during a recent visit to Toronto, where the young pop trio talked about their experience performing at the Tokyo Dome, still having friends back home in New Jersey despite always being on the road, and getting compared to Wilson Phillips before demonstrating their 3-part harmony skills singing a bit of ‘Then I Woke Up’.
“We went to Japan and it was the most amazing experience,” Ariel said. “We performed at the Tokyo Dome and it was so much fun.”
As for what stands out about their music, Paris said, “Probably our three-part harmonies. Most people say we sound like Wilson Phillips. We each have kind of different voices that all blend together so well.”
