For some quitting is an option. For others perseverance and diligence is the only choice. Profound diligence is exactly what has kept R&B quartet One Chance together over the years. This foursome is comprised of group members Jon Gordon, Rob Brent, Courtney Vantrease and Michael Gordon who joined forces in Chicago, Illinois nearly a decade ago. The group is in accordance with the belief that “Failure was never an option,” states group member Jon Gordon. “Even in our down time, the constant love, support and patience from our fans helped keep the fire going.” Keeping the flame burning is exactly what fans have been doing since the group began their journey in Chicago, after they finished high school. After creating a buzz in their hometown, One Chance was formally introduced to the world when the group was given the opportunity to have two features on the soundtrack to the motion picture “In The Mix”. This feature would lead to the group releasing the Snap and B single “Look At Her”, which featured rapper Fabo of D4L. The success of the single afforded One Chance the opportunity to perform as a part of the nationwide BET sponsored Scream Tour. After delays in the release of their debut album One Chance had to make a choice that would eventually make all the difference. “There came a time, when we had to make the decision to take control of our careers,” states Vantrease. “We had to do this our own way.”
Now in 2011 the Atlanta based R&B group who started their music careers singing in Chicago are doing just that, taking control. “We’ve never stopped recording” states Brent, “staying in the studio is what we feel allowed us to sign with T-Pain and his label Nappy Boy Entertainment.” T-Pain was a long time supporter of the group and after an impromptu performance the artist signed the quartet to his Nappy Boy Entertainment imprint. “T-Pain is someone who believed in what we were doing” says Michael Gordon.” With a new team and new outlook on the music industry, One Chance is confident and excited to be on their way to creating some of the same magic that their inspirations have done in the past, an impressive list that includes Boyz II Men, Jodeci, Marvin Gaye, Michael Jackson, Sam Cooke and more. One Chance is currently gearing up for a promotional tour to support their self penned single “Sexin’ On You” which was produced by Fyre. The smooth R&B song is an excellent blend of classic 90s style with a new age twist that showcases not only the groups strength vocally, but their talent as writers and offers a taste of what you can expect from their forthcoming debut album.
