Tamara "Taj" Johnson-George
Though her talents expand far beyond singing, Tamara “Taj” Johnson-George is best known as one-third of legendary R&B trio SWV (Sisters With Voices), recognized by Billboard as one of the Top 40 female girl groups of all time. Hailing from New York, Taj came together with Cheryl “Coko” Gamble and Leanne “Lelee” Lyons in the late ’80s and quickly rose to fame in 1992 with their hit R&B album “It’s About Time.” The acclaimed debut album sold 3 million copies and earned 11 Billboard Music Award nominations as well as nominations for a Grammy, American Music Award, Source Award, Children's Choice Award and BET Best of Video Soul Award.
When SWV disbanded from 1998-05, Taj kept busy. She signed a modeling contract with Ford Modeling Agency, received her BA from Belmont University and married NFL star running back Eddie George. Taj and Eddie share son Eriq, and Taj is stepmom to Jaire. In 2009, Taj competed in the 18th season of “Survivor.” Despite the rigorous schedule of being a touring artist and a mom, Taj is currently pursuing a law degree.
