With a gifted voice deeply rooted in gospel music, LaTocha Scott-Bivens is one-fourth of the prolific R&B quartet Xscape. LaTocha formed Xscape with her sister, Tamika Scott, and high school friends Tameka “Tiny” Harris and Kandi Burruss Tucker in 1993 as they exploded onto the Atlanta scene. Their meteoric rise yielded six consecutive top 10 hits and three platinum albums. Xscape disbanded in 1999 but came back together in 2017 to perform at the BET Awards. After witnessing the fan fervor for Xscape in 2017, the group hit the road again and chronicled their reunion on the hit Bravo docuseries “Xscape: Still Kickin’ It.”
Tocha began singing in church as a child and has always been well known for her soulful range and vocal dexterity. In addition to singing, Tocha has a passion for health and wellness. In 2018, she became a staunch vegan and launched her brand Made Girl, a healthy lifestyle company. She released her first cookbook in 2020, “LaTocha’s Planted Lifestyle,” and created a fitness line of premium Made Girl athleisure-wear. Her philanthropic endeavor, Made Girl Foundation, serves to build creativity in young women through teaching arts and music. LaTocha also formed record label Made Girl Music in partnership with Motown/Capitol Records. She is married to husband Rocky Bivens and they have a son, Jamon Bivens, together.
