To begin with, the girl grew up in Brooklyn. Tamara lost her father when she was nine and her mother died when the girl was 14, both from cancer; her childhood was then difficult as the girl lived in an abusive household, including after the death of her parents, as she lived with relatives and suffered sexual abuse. After matriculating from high school, Tamara entered Baruch College to major in accounting, yet she dropped out of college to pursue her career in singing.

In 1990, Cheryl Clemons, Tamara Johnson George and Leanne Lyons founded SWV and released their debut album “It’s About Time” (1992). However, the first single “Right Here”, taken from the album, received little attention, but the singles “I’m So Into You” and “Weak”, on the other hand, were very successful. In the US, the album and the singles sold five million copies, and the album was certified 3 times platinum. Their second album was a remix compilation called “The Remixes” (1994), followed by another studio album “New Beginning” launched in 1996, which was similarly successful as its predecessor, and received platinum certification for a million records sold. In 1997, the third studio album “Release Some Tension” was released, which didn’t reach the US Top Ten, but in New Zealand the single “Can We” was a number one hit. In 1999, the group split up into solo careers; numerous subsequent compilations such as “SWV – Greatest Hits” (1999), “The Best of SWV” (2000) and “SWV’s Platinum & Gold Collection” (2003) turned out to be failures.

After a long break between 1999 and 2005, during which Tamara signed a modelling contract, and completed a business administration degree at Belmont University, Nashville, the group reunited and began to work on an album with performers like Bobby Brown & New Edition, BLACKstreet and Babyface. In 2011, the band released the compilation album “SOUL”., followed by the reunion album at the beginning of 2012 under the title “I Missed Us”. Recently, the studio album entitled “Quiet” (2016) has been released, although it took only 80th position on the Billboard Top 100.

Tamara and husband American Footballer Eddie George were the subjects of “I Married a Baller” in 2007, a reality TV show centred on a footballer’s family, but including her difficult pregnancy. She also competed strongly in the TV show “Survivor’, reaching the final.

Overall, all the above mentioned engagements have added sums to the size of Tamara Johnson – George net worth, although financial difficulties have reduced its size over the years.

Finally, in the personal life of Tamara Johnson – George, she has been married to Eddie George since 2004, and they have a son Eriq Michael born in 2005. They have set-up Visions with Infinite Possibilities, a not-for-profit charity helping children who have suffered domestic violence.
