When you think of global pop group, who do you think of?
As great as all of these groups are, that group that comes to mind may soon be Now United.
Now United is the creation of Spice Girls’ manager Simon Fuller. It was based on the idea of making the first ever global pop group comprised of singers and dancers from around the world. The group is formed by 14 members from 14 different countries.
Members are as followed:
Auditions for this group were held in open casting calls around the world. The finalists that were selected were flown out to Los Angeles in late 2017 for a week long boot camp to get the number down to the final 14, whom became the official members of Now United. This audition process is portrayed in the Now United official documentary Dreams Come True, available on YouTube (which I highly recommend watching).
The music performed by Now United is attempting to bring joy to their audience by taking inspiration from different cultures from around the globe. The group performed in the first world tour during 2018 and is co-produced by Red One.
The group made their official US debut in July of 2018, performing their first single “Summer in the City” on The Late Late Show with James Corden. Check out the music video for this single below and be on the lookout for more from this amazing group in the future.
