Voices was an American R&B vocal girl group from Los Angeles that was active during the late 1980s until the early 1990s. The group consisted of members Monique Wilson, Arike Rice, sisters LaPetra and LaToya McMoore, and then-unknown twin sisters Tia and Tamera Mowry.

The group's only album, Just the Beginning... debuted in 1992 on Zoo Entertainment. The album featured Jo Marie Payton as a guest vocalist and Berry Gordy, Jr. was among the composers. Just the Beginning... features songs such as "Yeah, Yeah, Yeah!" (the group's most successful single), "M.M.D.R.N.F. (My Mama Didn't Raise No Fool)", and "Cloudy with a Chance of Tears". The album was not commercially successful and was the Voices' only album. Arike Rice became a member of the group Before Dark eight years later.
