Cheryl ‘Coko’ Gamble

June 13, 1970, South Bronx, NY

Most recognize Cheryl “Coko” Clemons as the elegant statuesque beauty of the R&B group Sisters With Voices, better known as SWV. As she takes the gospel music industry by storm, the world will be anointed by the smooth velvety vocals of this powerful songstress. Though widely known for her accomplishments in the R&B world, Coko has always maintained a connection to the church. “I've always been active in my church despite my profession in R&B music. Many R&B singers say, ‘I was reared in the church,’ but they're no longer active. Church was more than a breeding ground for me to sing, it's where I nurture my soul,” she proclaims, “It's a lifestyle for me.” ~ Gospel City: Cheryl Coko Clemons ~ retrieved May 5, 2014 © Allmusic

SWV

With their 1992 debut, It's About Time, the all-female new jack swing trio SWV scored a string of Top Ten R&B hits that established them as one of the most popular urban R&B groups of the '90s. ~ Allmusic: SWV ~ retrieved May 1, 2014 © Allmusic

“I think anybody can be a major hit again with hard work! Girl groups are missing right now & every few years we go away but now's our time to shine. Maybe with SWV’s return we will see more girl groups coming out doing their thing… it's needed!” ~ Cheryl ‘Coko’ Gamble ~ RnB Music Blog: SWV talks about new album and Beyoncé ~ December 18, 2011 © RnB Music Blog

SWV ~ Ranked #8 Billboard Top 10 Girl Groups in 2014.
