C&C Music Factory Interview

When C&C Music Factory is brought up, most people immediately remember smash hits like “Gonna Make You Sweat,” “Here We Go” and “Things That Make You Go Hmmm…” Songs like these helped C&C Music Factory earn more than 35 music industry awards, including VMA’s, AMA’s and Billboard Awards.
