Vernett "Vernie" Bennett (born 17 May 1971) is an English singer. She is a founding member of R&B girl group Eternal, of which her sister Easther Bennett is also a member.

Eternal[edit]

Eternal were formed in 1992 and originally consisted of the Bennett sisters, Kéllé Bryan, and Louise Redknapp. They became a trio in 1995 when Redknapp quit the group to go solo. Eternal eventually disbanded in 2000 after selling 10 million records worldwide.[1]

In December 2013, it was announced that Eternal would be reforming for the second series of the ITV2 reality-documentary The Big Reunion.[2] Redknapp chose not to take part, but wished her bandmates all the best.[3]

Personal life[edit]

After the split, Vernie stepped out of the limelight and went back to university to finish studying law and has since become a practicing lawyer. In 2006, she gave birth to her first child. In August 2010, she signed with ASM Artist Management. She currently lives in London with her husband and their two children.[4]
