Jomanda was an American female house music vocal trio from New Jersey. Members included Joanne Thomas, Cheri Williams, and Renee Washington. It had several hits on the US Billboard Hot Dance Club Play chart during the first half of the 1990s, including "Got a Love for You," which reached #1 in 1991. The song also crossed over to the mainstream, going Top 40 (peaking at #40) on the US Billboard Hot 100.

In 1993, the trio returned to #1 on the dance chart with "Don't You Want Me," a track credited to Felix featuring Jomanda.

Group member Joanne Thomas died in October 2003, after a three-year battle with colon cancer.

The song "Make My Body Rock" appeared on the fictional radio station SF-UR in the video game Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. This song is also featured on Dance! Online, a multiplayer online casual rhythm game.
