Voice/Vocal Range

As a member of En Vogue, Maxine was credited as the member with the "Motown" voice. It seemed as perfect reasoning, since she stated in many interviews that her musical influences: Aretha Franklin, Chaka Khan, Patti Labelle, Tina Turner, and Gladys Knight all had musical careers although some were not Motown artists.

Maxine has a wide vocal range, spanning between 3-5 octaves,[citation needed] making her quite versatile within the group. In group harmonies, Maxine usually sings the "bottom" or the lowest key in the harmony.

Leads/Shared Leads

Personal

In addition to singing, Jones and her sisters have a general goods business. She currently resides in Charlottesville with her daughter. Her sister Rose Hill, who is a well known artist also resides in Charlottesville.[citation needed]
