Quickly some short facts about the history of the WEATHER GIRLS: Founded as “Two
Tons Of Fun“, what they called themselves in the 70ies, the duo consisted of Izora
Armstead and Martha Wash. When recording It’s Raining Men and renaming the duo in
Weather Girls“ a worldwide career began in the early 80ies.
As Martha Wash decided to start a solo career in the late 80ies and the WEATHER
GIRLS were only known as a duo, Izora Armstead came up with the idea to found a
family business: My mom called and asked me if I would like to sing together with her“,
Dynelle Rhodes remembers.
At first, I thought, she wanted to put me on, but she said breezily: ´I’m in the studio
working on a new record and you have to decide immediately. I quit my job and moved
to New York together with my son Anthony.“
The debut family album Double Tons Of Fun became a big success, as well as the hit
single Can U Feel It and The Weather Girls, now mother and daughter, continued their
Izora had already decided to say „Good Bye“ to the stressful tour life and wanted to retire
bit and bit when she passed away in the autumn of 2004. Dynelle decided to go on in terms of
her beloved mom.
And so, THE WEATHER GIRLS still perform around the world.
