OT: Former Member of 58 Greene Making it Big

So it goes like this....was reading the Cheesy Video thread, someone mentioned Shakira, and I wondered how many people on this site remembered her before she was a blonde...which made me think of Estoy Aqui...which reminded me of U-M's own multicultural acapella group, 58 Greene, and the girl who sang it, Chau. Well, some group alumni research later, and I find out she's got her own band in LA, that's huge in Sweden. So, if I can give props to Indiana's Straight No Chaser guys, I have to give a nod to one of U-M's own who managed to find a career doing what she loved.

And really, I hope people responding to WTF to this thread don't think I necessarily thought this was "hitting it big"...but I like to give follow alum nods, and thought not everyone might know what 58 Greene even was.  And if we ever get to another Rose Bowl, I'll check them out when I'm in LA.
