SWV

The Sisters With Voices from NYC originally was a gospel group, but then went the secular route in 1992 with hits like “Weak,” “I’m So Into You,” and “Right Here/Human Nature.”   They were a force up until 1998 when they took an hiatus.

During the hiatus Coko attempted to release a solo album but didn’t pop off as largely as the SWV albums did.  She went back to her gospel roots and did multiple Christian songs with different artists (particularly Brent Jones and the TP Mobb’s Midnight).  She released an album “Rhythm and Spirit:  Love Can Build a Bridge,” which featured artists like Jennifer Hudson, Fantasia Barrino, and Patti LaBelle.  She married the drummer of Israel and New Breed, “Big Mike” Clemmons, and had a second child with him.  She also performed in the all black cast version of the Vagina Monologues and toured with them.

LeLee seemed to have a harder time, with three children and being temporarily homeless after the group disbanded.  Her former group mates, who were financially stable had no idea of her destitution until they read an interview she did with Sister2Sister magazine.  But, she got back on her feet.

Tamara had a two year modeling contract with Ford Modeling Agency.  She later married Tennessee Titan Eddie George and the two had a son, to add to George’s son from a previous relationship.  She got her Bachelors in 2004, and began a career as a writer, contributing to the Souls of My Sisters: Black Women Break Their Silence, Tell Their Stories and Heal Their Spirits anthology, and writing her own book with Katrina Chambers:   Player hateHER: How to Avoid the Beat Down and Live in a Drama-Free World.  But it was Tamara’s reality show, “I Married A Baller” that seemed to bring the group back together (they sang the theme song for the show).

Now that they’re back together they started back touring and releasing music.  They released an album “I Missed Us,” which was released this past April.
