Milli Vanilli's Fab Morvan Making LP with the Guy Who Actually Sang His Songs
Published Apr 30, 2015A little more than 25 years ago, disgraced pop act Milli Vanilli were at the centre of a massive scandal when it was revealed that members Fab Morvan and Rob Pilatus didn't actually sing any of their own songs. Now, Morvan is embracing that disastrous moment in his career by recording an album with John Davis, who was one of the real behind-the-scenes vocalists who sang Milli Vanilli's hits.
The forthcoming full-length is called Face Meets Voice: A True Milli Vanilli Experience. Both Morvan and Davis will be singing on these all-original tunes. There's no release date just yet, but they're hoping to have it done by this summer.
Davis told TMZ, "Everyone knew Fab didn't sing, but had no idea he actually could sing. And really great." Above is a photo of the pair in the studio. The album is being produced by DJ Polique and his associates.
Davis was one of the real voices behind the hits like "Blame It on the Rain" and "Girl You Know It's True." The latter song, of course, was at the centre of a lip-syncing controversy when the backing track began to skip during an MTV performance in Bristol, CT.
After the scandal, the behind-the-scenes singers released a 1992 album as the Real Milli Vanilli and Morvan and Pilatus released a 1993 album as Rob & Fab. Morvan has been attempting to stage a solo comeback in recent years.
