While at a music conference in Washington, DC in 1993, Jones caught the attention of music producer Eddie F. At the time Jones was a member of a group. The group had high aspirations for their talent showcase at the conference, however, no one showed up. Determined to get noticed, Jones and the group started singing for anyone who listened. Eddie F saw great potential in the group that day. Shortly after that meeting the group was signed to Untouchables/LaFace and recorded a single but their dream was never realized because the group disbanded.
