New shows to watch in 2014 include WeTV’s latest reality show featuring the members of the 90’s girl group “Sisters with Voices” known as “SWV”. The series will reunite group members Cheryl Clemens (Coko), Leanne Lyons (LeLee) and Tamara Johnson-George (Taj) and document their journal back into the spotlight.
In the early 1990’s you couldn’t turn on the radio without hearing one of SWV’s songs. With hits that include “I’m so into You”, “Weak”, “You’re the One” and “Right Here (Human Nature)”. SWV was one of the most successful female R&B Groups to come out of the 90’s.
After being together, performing and touring all over the world the ladies decided to take a break and split up in 1998 to pursue solo projects. Coko who was deemed the lead singer in the group used the time to put out her first solo album titled “Hot Coko” which was released in 1999 and the first single (Sunshine) made it to the Top 40 spot on the R&B charts.
In early 2005 Coko, Lelee and Taj had plans to reunite SWV for the fans and record a new album but those plans never saw the light of day. 2012 proved to be a very good year for the ladies as fans started to see more of them on national television shows with appearances on the Wendy Williams show and a special performance on BET’s “Black Girls Rock”.
SWV’s new reality show on WeTV will be a mix of life today as mature women, mothers and friends trying to re-establish their musical careers. There will be plenty of tension and drama as the ladies juggle family life, creative differences, producers and their fans.
Pop some popcorn and settle in for six one hour episodes of “SWV, Sisters with Voices” on WeTV premiering January 23, 2014 Thursday nights at 10pm.
