The Sugababes were originally composed of Mutya Buena, Siobhan Donaghy, & Keisha Buchanan. Mutya and Keisha have been friends since they were 8 years old. They met Siobhan at a party and soon discovered that they loved to sing and decided to form a group called "Sugababes". They chose the name at the age of 12 and 13 cause at the time they were still eating baby food! They found a manager and were signed to London Records and began working on their debut album.
