Sinnamon was an American female R&B vocal trio, consisting of Connecticut natives Barbara Fowler and Marsha Carter, and Melissa Bell from New York City. The group went through an abrupt development from a minimalist contemporary R&B sound of post-disco which was dropped after a third release, moving towards mild freestyle and radio-friendly house music but still preserving their R&B affiliation. Bell is currently a writer, living in New York City.
Their greatest success occurred in 1982 when their song "Thanks to You" spent two weeks at number one on the US Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart in Billboard. The song also reached number 44 on the US Billboard R&B chart. Their song "I Need You Now" features uncredited guest vocals by Bernard Fowler from Peech Boys.
