On this night in 1997 you were listening to... Eternal

A Friday Flashback to get your weekend started…

YES I SEE you crying, and I feel your broken heart…

But it’s OK because the lovely Eternal, with their structured hair and colourful leather jackets, were there to soothe you in 1997.

The trio were originally a quartet, with Louise Nurding joining Kéllé Bryan and sisters Easther and Vernie Bennett to form the group in 1992.

But by 1995 the extremely popular Nurding (who later married footballer Jamie Redknapp) had left to pursue a solo career, and in 1998 Bryan was sacked by the Bennett sisters. Ouch.

Still, during their heyday (which came after the success of US band En Vogue, whose style they were ‘inspired’ by), Eternal had a run of hits, including Oh Baby I, Someday, and I Am Blessed.

My lord, you too…
