REMEMBER WHEN
Let's go back to the summer of 1994 when All-4-One topped the Billboard Music Charts for 11 weeks with "I Swear." This version was ranked at #78 on Billboard's Top 100 songs in the 50-year history of the Billboard Hot 100 chart. They took home the Grammy in 1995 for Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal.
