Vernie's Eternal page
#Eternal20 This biography was written a long time ago and doesn't cite most of its sources.
I would welcome any corrections or insight so that I can improve it.
Vernie 'the shy one' Bennett is sometimes overshadowed by her sister, Easther. Some might miss the fact that she too has a wonderful voice, one slightly softer than that of her sister. It's Vernie who can predominantly be heard on Eternal's gospel tunes, and she usually sings live on tour.
Behind the scenes, Vernie is the one responsible for the harmony arrangement. She has also bought some recording equipment and has expressed a desire to write and produce some of Eternal's songs.
With her loveable personality and intelligent attitude to the music industry, Vernie is surely destined to go far.

Vernie's greatest "Power Of A Woman"
Vernie has so much going for her, it's hard to pinpoint her biggest asset. Like her sister, she is a very talented singer. Also, Select magazine paid tribute to Vernie's good looks by including her in their "50 most fanciable people in popular entertainment" (March 1995).
Quotes: things Vernie has said
"Even before we met Denis, me and Easther always knew we'd be in this
business - that's what we always wanted to do."

"In Europe people stick to their own kind - usually white - that's
obvious in the magazines. It's just that black actors and musicians
don't get the same opportunities as white people here in Britain."
