Summary
Three young women Deena Jones, Effie White, and Lorrell Robinson desire to become pop stars. They get their wish when they are picked to be backup singers for the legendary James "Thunder" Early. Early's manager, Curtis Taylor and Effie's brother C.C., decide that Deena should be the lead singer even though Effie has the strongest voice in the group. The girls soon discover exactly what it takes to be in the music business and what they must give up to realize their dream. This film version of the Broadway musical is loosely based on the rise of the Motown girl group, The Supremes
