DC NITELIFE IS SPOTLIGHTING THE AMAZING R&B GIRL GROUP “DMK”
R&B girl groups with powerful vocal abilities can be hard to come by in the national realm.
But, that doesn’t mean they are not still around. Meet DMK, an immensely talented R&B
female trio from Detroit who is looking to continue the legacy of popular girl groups such as
SWV and The Supremes.
Damoli Harris, Melanee Felton, and Kourtney Lenton, make up DMK and have been singing
together for over 10 years. They were formally trained in music and theatre at the Winston
School of Arts and came together shortly after performing in a local stage play titled “Where
is the Love.” Harris, Felton and Lenton all sang during one of the scenes and discovered
how well they harmonized together. From that moment on, they fused a tight bond and
started down the path to musical success.
DMK may look young, but they have some serious pipes and their vocals are heavily
steeped in the gospel-soul sounds of groups like En Vogue, who is also one of their musical
influences. Their upbeat musical tunes have a twist of old-school Motown flavor, but also
encompass the new school vibes of today’s musical generation.
As Detroit natives, their Motown roots run deep, and not just because of their affiliation with
the city. Lenton’s grandfather is Levi Stubbs of the legendary Motown group The Four Tops.
Motown alumni have welcomed them with open arms giving them opportunities to perform
with The Four Tops and The Temptations as well as serve as backup singers for Ollie
Woodson of the Temptations.
DMK has also toured nationally and internationally as actresses in the musical stage play
“Church Girl.” They have also performed locally at events such as Detroit’s annual Ribs &
Soul Festival, the Caribbean Festival, Metro Youth Day at Belle Isle and regularly performed
the National Anthem for the Detroit Pistons.
DMK has been catching the attention of a lot of heavy hitters as of late by simply doing what they do best. SING. They stopped by Vibe Magazine while in NYC and blew the staff away.

Speaking of singers, one of the girls biggest influences is Brandy. They had the opportunity
to meet with her backstage at the legendary Broadway play Chicago and she had nothing
but praises for their gift of melody; Gave DMK words of encouragement and even
