"...3 of us went ahead, so we're gonna go with that untill it's all good to get back together.." (Denise & Lorraine in Exclusive TV, Channel 5, 2000)




June 2001:


-Five Star's star is still rising in the charts. Last week Funktafied moved up on the Hip-Hop/R&B Sales Chart to #29.
It also moved up on the Hip-Hop/R&B Bubbling Under Chart to #15.

-The one and only Five Star Messageboard from I-music has changed it's look dramatically. To my opinion a very poorly attempt to be as high-tech as other bulletinboards. It's a chaos and far from custom-friendly. the problem is we just HAVE to cope with it, we have no choice, do we? Just check it out and see what you think.

-Michael "Five Star Service" Silvester has a new Poll. In the autumn of 1998 he released the results for the "Five Star Track Poll". Now he's doing it again but ofcorse incl. the "Eclipse" tracks and some rare and vocal b-side tracks.
You can go to his site and vote.

-Five Star will be back on the road again with a performance in exactly one month, July 21 San Diego, California.
It will be a 45 minute show from 9:45-10:30 PM. Check out this site for more information and ticket sales!
Anyone who's planning to go please let me know as I can reserve some pages for your own unique pics & story!


-As many may know by now, Five Star are hitting the US-Charts at the moment with their latest single "Funktafied"!
It's the first time since 1988 ("Someone's In Love", r&b #35) that Five Star hits it big in the US-charts.
Five Star's US contact-person Leron kept us up-to-date with the latest positions on the Billboard-Charts on the I-music Bulletin-board. Because he wanted to share this information with every Five Star fan in the world he decided to release the Charts on the Five Star Channel. He emailed me several times with the Chart-attachments but unfortunately somehow it just doesn't open properly...(maybe it's that stupid Internet-cafe Netscape computer!?).
We expect to solve this problem very soon, so till then I will give you the latest, collected from the bulletinboard:

Five Star Funktafied had come in on the R&B/Hip-Hop SALES Chart at #39. They entered the chart last issue, which was the 2 June 2001 at #72. It is selling like mad over here! They had the biggest jump in sales for that week.
This week Funktafied checks in at #23 Bubbling Under and #36 on the Sales Chart.
Funktafied isn't officially released until Tuesday June 5th. Five Star is being distributed by Ground Level and not themselves, so the totals for Sound Scan comes from their distributor. As I was told, the single is available all across the country. As I wrote last week or maybe the week before about the single being sent to radio, all of the radio stations don't have it yet! It is A-Listed at virtually every station it's being played. There are several stations out there at this point that's giving Funktafied 18 spins a week. I'm sure PAs are forthcoming".

So, with all this really great chart-success News, be sure you check out The Five Star Channel regularly as there's lot's more coming! :)
