Coko, the former lead singer of the platinum recording trio Sisters With Voices (SWV) is set to release her second gospel CD entitled, ‘The Winner in Me’ on Light Records.
Her signature powerhouse vocals are unmistakable. And the first release called ‘Wait On God‘ is a classic gospel tune brimming with emotion and inspiration.
Coko, whose real name is Cheryl Gamble, began her recording career as a choir member in Hezekiah Walker’s Love Fellowship Tabernacle Choir. In 1990 Coko formed the group Female Edition and later renamed it SWV. After their breakup some eight years later, Coko released one solo R&B album then signed onto a gospel label and married music producer Mike “Big Mike” Clemmons who is the father of her second son, Jalen.
Coko’s full gospel solo debut, Grateful, was released in 2006 and debuted at #5 on Billboard’s Top Independent albums chart. So her upcoming CD has great expectations.
Kelly Price, who also established a following in the R&B genre before crossing over to gospel, is a guest artist on Coko’s CD. Other guest artists include Canton Jones, Israel Haughton and Lady (Cyde) Tibba (Gamble) who is Coko’s mother. The CD is now available in Stores Everywhere.
