The Cheetah girls, consisting of Galleria, Chanel, Dorinda, and Aqua started out as a music group from the Cheetah Girls novels by Deborah Gregory. The book was turned into a movie in 2003, starring Raven-Symone, Lynn Whitfield, Adrienne Bailon, and others. After the movie The Cheetah Girls made the decision to keep working, releasing another album titled "Cheetah-licious Christmas". They also made a song which was featured on the "Chikcen Little" soundtrack. These events did not include actress/singer Raven-Symone due to her work as an actress and other things. The Disney group continue to work, releasing another movie "The Cheetah Girls 2" in 2006.
