"Why Do Fools Fall In Love requires four strong solo voices and tight harmonies. Senkowsky and Eshleman are the two strongest voices and know how to sell a song. They also have great expressions and fine dance moves."

In addition to performing, Eshleman choreographed all the songs in a wonderful throwback to the Supremes and other group acts of the time period. She's also adorable while performing "My Boy Lollipop."
