Although Verzuz battle is only in its second season the show has featured many heavyweight music groups from yesteryears. However, the Sistas With Voices aka SWV vs Xscape performance was one of the most memorable ones.
As the members of both the bands performed their hit songs, SWV member Tamara Antrice George aka Taj piqued the interest of many fans.

The pair tied the knot in 2004. They have a son named Eriq Michael George, who was born in 2005. Moreover, Taj is also the stepmother to Eddie’s son from a previous relationship, Jaire David.
