Shai was formed at Howard University in Washington, D.C.
Three of its four members, Marc Gay, founding member Carl Martin, and Darnell Van Rensalier, belonged to the same fraternity, Alpha Phi Alpha, and along with good friend Garfield A. Bright, decided to take a chance at turning their hobby of singing at talent shows into a career. "If I Ever Fall in Love" was released as the first single, and peaked at #2 in the U.S. The next two releases from the double-platinum album, "Comforter" and "Baby I'm Yours," each peaked #10.
