Jomanda was an R&B female trio from New Jersey, that was comprised of members Joanne Thomas, Cheri Williams, and Renee Washington.
The group's work was very rich in the house styles of the early 1990s and was packed with many dance jams. In 1990, they released their debut album, Someone to Love Me. The girls scored several hits on the dance charts with "Make My Body Rock," "Don't You Want My Love," "Got A Love For You," and "The True Meaning of Love" all reaching the top 10 on the dance charts. However, only the single "Got A Love For You" crossed onto the other charts, reaching #40 on the Hot 100 and #66 on the R&B charts.
Jomanda's second album, Nubia Soul, came out in 1993. The girls second album failed to reach the potential of their first. The single "I Like It" reached #45 on the R&B charts and #83 on the Hot 100. Meanwhile, "I Cried the Tears" reached #15 on the dance charts and "Back to You" peaked at #96 on the R&B charts.
In 2003, Joanne Thomas died of colon cancer.
