Former Fifth Harmony Members Celebrate The Band’s 10th Anniversary
The X Factor fans weren’t the only people that remembered Fifth Harmony’s ten year anniversary. Lauren Jauregui, Normani, and Ally Brooke all took to Twitter to thank fans for their everlasting support.
Lauren Jauregui, Normani, Dinah Jane Hansen and Ally Brooke Celebrate 10 Years of Fifth Harmony
On July 27, three of five former Fifth Harmony members celebrated the tenth anniversary of their group. Brooke shared a TikTok video featuring the group’s transition to stardom, Normani and Hansen reshared another Tweet about the anniversary, and Jauregui shared a heartfelt message about the group.
“Today is such a special day! First & foremost it’s the official 10 year anniversary of Fifth Harmony and the gratitude that I have for each one of these women and the experience of being part of something so special sticks with me to this day,” Jauregui wrote. “Today, I’m playing Radio City in New York with my own music. Such an iconic venue and moment and I know it wouldn’t be possible without Fifth Harmony and the amazing doors it opened for me and the incredible lessons it taught me.”
She finished her chain of tweets out by thanking Harmonizers for aiding in the group’s success. Without their fans, this group wouldn’t be as successful as they are in the music industry. The Voice coach Cabello did not post about the group’s ten year anniversary. Instead, she shared various promotional posts about song with Stromae, “Mon Amour.”
Fifth Harmony’s Rise to Stardom
It’s no secret that Fifth Harmony was one of the biggest groups to come out of The X Factor, beside One Direction and Little Mix. This girl group was placed together after being rejected in Bootcamp as solo artists. Fifth Harmony was comprised of Ally Brooke, Dinah Jane Hansen, Normani Hamilton, Camila Cabello, and Lauren Jauregui. The group excelled throughout each week of the competition, ending in third place.
After The X Factor, Fifth Harmony made waves in the music scene with their debut single “Miss Movin’ On.” This single peaked on the Billboard hot 100 chart at No. 76. This release broke the record at the time for the highest-charting single from an X Factor contestant to appear on the chart. Soon after, Fifth Harmony fully rose to fame, becoming the most successful and influential act in the US syndication history.
Camila Cabello Departs from Fifth Harmony
After releasing hit albums in 2015 and 2016, the group began to crumble. In December 2016, The Voice coach Cabello announced her departure from the group. Although the singer didn’t explain her departure reason at the time, Cabello explained in 2018 that her departure was due to creative differences.
“We were just really young,” she said. “If we were in the same situation now, it would probably be fine for everyone to make their own music while being in the group, because I think everyone understands now that you can’t limit people. That’s why people break free.”
She also admitted that she felt forced out of the group due to her solo career curiosity. After Cabello‘s departure, Fifth Harmony continued as a quartet. They released their third album in 2017, then went on to a hiatus in March 2018. This group has yet to come back together, probably due to each member’s success as a solo artist.
