imageInnosense was a girl group from the late ’90s\early 2000s. The group decided to misspell their name so they wouldn’t sound like “innocent little four-year-olds.”

They formed in 1997 and were managed by Lou Pearlman & Lynn Harless (the mother of Justin Timberlake).

The group originally consisted of Danay Ferrer (born on July 28, 1974 in Camaguey, Cuba), Nikki DeLoach (born Ashlee Nicole DeLoach on September 9, 1979 in Waycross, Georgia), Amanda Latona (born Amanda Marie Latona on March 24, 1979 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania), Mandy Ashford (born Mandeline Elizabeth Ashford on March 16, 1979 in Clinton, Mississippi) and Britney Spears (yes, the Britney Spears).

Nikki was a cast member on “The All-New Mickey Mouse Show” (which also starred Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears). Danay went to high school with Joey Fatone and was chosen to be in the group.

Mandy was a member of the Attache show along with her high school friend Lance Bass (of *NSYNC) with who she also shared a vocal coach with. Lance recommended Mandy to Lou Pearlman and she was selected to join the group.

After Britney Spears left the group to pursue her solo career, she was replaced by Veronica Finn (born Veronica Lee Finn on July 5, 1981 in Memphis, Tennessee).
imageIn 1998, Innosence released their debut single “Wherever You Are” which was released in Germany.

It’s unknown how or if the single made any music charts, but they made a music video which aired in Germany. Amanda later left Innosense and was replaced by Jenny Morris (born Jennifer DeLou Morris on August 30, 1980).

In 1999, the group appeared in the movie “Longshot” and Britney Spears also appeared in the movie, but not with Innosense. After Britney’s solo career took off, Innosense became an opening act for her when she went on tour. They were also an opening act for *NSYNC.

imageOn June 27, 2000, Innosense released their debut single “Say No More” which peaked at #20 on Billboard’s Hot Singles Sales chart, but missed the Billboard Hot 100.

imageOn August 8, 2000, the group released their debut (and only) album “So Together” on RCA Records, but failed to make any impact on the charts at all.

imageThe group’s last single “Rain Rain” was released in Germany in 2002. In 2003, Innosense disbanded to pursue separate projects.

Nikki DeLoach went on to pursue an acting career and currently appears on MTV’s television show “Awkward.”

Danay Ferrer considered starting her own solo music career, but her contract with Innosense prevented her from doing anything outside of the group and she began working in a bank. In 2005, she appeared in the stage production of “Dora’s Pirate Adventure.” It’s unknown what she’s doing these days.

Mandy Ashford has modeled in several publications such as Playboy, Miller Lite, Samson Technologies, Swisher cigars and currently for Thompson Pump.

Amanda Latona signed a solo deal with J Records where she recorded two singles “Can’t Take it Back” (in 2002) and “Do You Still” (in 2003), but after both singles flopped, she was dropped from the label. These days, she is now a fitness trainer and bodybuilder.

Veronica Finn (now Veronica Davidson) was part of a band called Zoetic, but these days, she is now a realtor in Tampa, Florida with Coldwell Banker.

Not much information is given on Jenny Morris’ whereabouts, but she married Jeff Beisl in 2004.
