The Cover Girls is a New York City-based freestyleurbandance-pop girl group that achieved the majority of its chart success in the late 1980s and early 1990s. Among the group’s best-known songs are «Show Me», «We Can’t Go Wrong», and «Wishing on a Star».

The Cover Girls began its musical career in 1986 at a time when other American and British girl groups such as ExposéBananaramaSeductionSweet Sensation and Company B were scoring hit singles on the pop and dance charts. The group was formed by music producer and songwriter Andy «Panda» Tripoli and music promoter and dance club owner Sal Abbatiello and was originally composed of singers Louise Angel Sabater (a.k.a. Angel Clivillés), Caroline Jackson and Sunshine Wright. The increased popularity of freestyle music, a Latin-influenced form of electronic dance music, played an influential role in the style of the group’s initial recordings.
