Terry Ellis was raised in her hometown by her father, Lennie James Ellis, and her mother, Evelyn Marie Patton. She attended Worthing High School of Houston, and upon matriculation in 1982, she enrolled at Prairie View A&M University, from which she graduated with a BA degree in Marketing in 1990.

Terry’s musical career began when she became a member of the group En Vogue alongside Cindy Herron, Dawn Robinson and Maxine Jones – it was planned to be a trio, but the producers were amazed by her voice, so the group became a quartet. Their debut album was released in 1990, entitled “Born To Sing”, which reached No. 3 on the Billboard’s R&B Albums Chart, as well as No. 21 on the Billboard 200 chart, and marked the beginning of her net worth. The album’s hit single “Hold On” peaked at No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart, topped the R&B singles and Hot Dance Music/Club Play charts, and earned them the Billboard Music Award for No. 1 R&B Single of the Year. Other singles from the album such as “You Don’t Have To Worry”, “Lies”, and “Don’t Go” also achieved major success, and the album received triple platinum certification.

The second album “Funky Divas” was released in 1992, peaking at No. 1 on the Billboard R&B, and No. 8 on the Billboard 200, plus it achieved multi-platinum status, adding a considerable amount to Terry’s net worth. The album consists of such hit singles as “My Lovin’’ (You’re Never Gonna Get It)”, “Giving Him Something He Can Feel”, “Free Your Mind”, among others. Thanks to their work on the album, it won an American Music Award for Favorite Soul/R&B Album, and was nominated five times for Grammy Awards.

In 1995, the group went on hiatus, and then Terry recorded her debut solo album entitled “Southern Gal”, before the group’s next album came out in 1997, under the title “EV3”, reaching No. 8 on both the Billboard R&B and the Billboard 200 charts. The hit single “Whatever” peaked at No. 5 on the Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart, and was later certified gold, which increased Terry’s net worth by a large margin.

To speak further about her career, Terry has released with the group four more studio albums – “Masterpiece Theatre” (2000), “The Gift Of Christmas” (2002), “Soul Flower” (2014), and most recently the album “Electric Café” (2017). Her net worth is certainly still rising.

When it comes to Terry Ellis’ personal life, there is little information in the media about it, although she is known to have a daughter. In free time, she is very active on social media platforms, including Instagram. Her current residence is in Los Angeles, California.
