Sisters with Voices, better known as SWV.SWV formed the group in 1990 as a gospel group. SWV became one of the most successful R&B groups of the 1990.

They had hits, including "Weak", "Right Here/Human Nature", "I'm So Into You", and "You're the One". The group broke up in 1998 to pursue solo projects, and reunited in 2005. SWV is currently ranked #100 on the Top 500 Pop Artists of the Past 25 Years at the website Rock on the Net.
SWV (an abbreviation for Sisters With Voices) was formed by three friends: Cheryl Gamble, Tamara Johnson and Leanne Lyons (the group's founder). SWV got its start after the three friends sent a five song demo to record labels in the United States. Soon after, they were signed to a record deal with RCA Records in 1992 after producer Teddy Riley, a former member of Guy, heard the demo.
