Before 9.9 existed they were called Thunder en were signed in the 1970’s by Capitol Records and released a single titled, "Expressway To Your Heart". Wanda Perry, Margo Thunder and Leslie Jones were friends and students at Madison Park High School, a school in Roxbury, Massachusetts. The three girls were at school all in the same music class and became close friends. In the beginning the trio performed successfully on street corners at Boston. Eventually, they answered an advertisement in the Boston Phoenix and began performing in clubs under the name "Margo Thunder and Intrigue."
When they were signed by RCA they changed their name in 9.9. RCA Records released their first album, and the very successful single, "All of Me for All of You". The single reached #5 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart. The re-mix version of this track has been added as a Bonus track to the original album. The re-mixer was Bob Rosa who made remixes for Whitney Houston, C&C Music factory and Maria Carey to name a few.
9.9's album reached #79 on the U.S. Billboard 200 and #15 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart. In 1985 they released a second single titled "I Like The Way You Dance." The group performed on Soul Train, American Bandstand, and Solid Gold. They also provided backing vocals in the studio for lots of other groups. Among them the single with Patti LaBelle called "Shy". 9.9 continued until 1987, when disputes over material, production and personal matters forced the group to disband. Leslie Jones now has two children and four grandchildren and continues to sing in the church. Wanda Perry is now married and has two children. She is also a minister and has recorded several gospel albums all available on iTunes. Margo Thunder went on to form another female group called Lady Soul. Lady Soul recorded a song and video for the Sister Act soundtrack called "If My Sister’s in Trouble". Margo is still recording as a solo act and just released a single called "Mistreated" also available on iTunes. She currently resides in Los Angeles.
