Glamour is More Than a Name for HSN Band

On Wed. Oct. 26, the group Glamour sang in front of hundreds of students.

On stage, they perform as a collected, cohesive group and their presentation is a huge part of the message they want to send to their fans.

“When you say Glamour, people are like, you have to be pretty, you have to be perfect, you have to have nice hair. But that’s not what Glamour means to us.” Moriah said.

“The meaning behind this group is taking whatever makes you, you and expanding on it and living in that.” Moriah said.

At 16 and 17 years old, Moriah, Kaylan and Lady radiant confidence. Not only do they believe in confidence, they want to spread it as well.

“Self confidence will get you so far . . . because people can’t deny you when you’re confident.” Moriah said.

But how these girls got to where they are today is an attest to their friendship. The artists, all originating from Atlanta, found each other one summer.

“We all went to summer camp as individual artists, we didn’t know we would be a group. We weren’t trying to be a group, but they [HI Entertainment] put us together and it went well. We had to learn to be friends at first, but now we are like sisters.” Moriah said.

As young musicians, Glamour struggles with balancing school and their careers.

“We are in online school and it is very difficult, very challenging,”Moriah said.

“Especially on tour, you have to be very disciplined. You have to make time, sometimes you have to stay up even later, until like 4:00 am even when you have to wake up at 6:00. You just have to do what you have to do because school is very very important,” Moriah said.

With all the hard work, Glamour is thankful for the opportunity of a lifetime.

“It doesn’t really matter because we are on tour!” Moriah said.
