Yes.... Ashe (who was a model not a singer) mimed over Helens recorded voice

Ashe dated Prince supposedly. She gave an interview or recollection in an 80's mag with accurate details of Prince songs and studio behaviour and even Prince's favorite snacks! Only deep Prince fans know of this. Just a FYI.
