Charisse Arrington

Charisse Arrington (born in Chicago, Illinois) was a female R&B singer from the 90's. Not much information is given about her, but she was signed to MCA Records.

In 1995, Charisse was featured on the "To Wong Foo, Thanks For Everything, Julie Newmar" movie soundtrack with the song, "Do What You Wanna Do."
In 1996, Charisse released her first single, "Down With This" peaked at #18 on Billboard's Hot Dance Music\Club Play Singles chart and #77 on Billboard's Hot R&B Singles chart in September of 1996, staying on the chart for 11 weeks.
The follow-up single, "Ain't No Way" peaked at #92 on Billboard's Hot R&B Singles chart in April of 1997, staying on the chart for only 3 weeks.

After that, it seems as if Charisse has faded into obscurity. Nothing much has been heard from her since.
