In 2002 four girls from the Young Women In Harmony organization got together to become a quartet. They called themselves "Underage". One of them was 14 years old and the other three were 11 years old. They were talented girls with lots of determination and in 2005 they won first place in the Young Women In Harmony competition in Greenville, South Carolina.

Mary Segura was the bass in the quartet at this time.
Their next step was to compete at the adult level by competing at the 2009 Region 12 competition. By this time they were calling themselves the "LoveNotes". They placed 13th in this competition.
