TLC's Ten Greatest Moments

April 25, 2016 marks 14th anniversary of the passing of Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes

TLC is the best selling American female group of all-time with over 65 million records sold. Consisting of Tionne "T-Boz" Watkins, Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes (until her death in 2002) and Rozonda "Chilli" Thomas, the group recorded ten top ten singles, four number one hits,  and four multi-platinum albums. TLC has won numerous honors, including five Grammys, five Soul Train Music Awards, three Soul Train Lady of Soul awards (including Entertainer of the Year), three Billboard Music Awards, and one American Music Award.

In 1999, TLC headlined its first tour, the FanMail tour, featuring several opening acts including  Destiny's Child, K-CI and JoJo, and Christina Aguilera.

On April 25, 2002, Lopes was killed in an automobile accident in La Ceiba, Honduras. She was 30 years old. Her final album with TLC, 3D,  was released November 12, 2002. It was certified platinum and earned two Grammy nominations.

CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story debuted October 21, 2013 on VH1 starring Keke Palmer as Chilli, Lil Mama as Left-Eye, and Drew Sidora as T-Boz.  The group launched a Kickstarter campaign in January 2015 to finance recording their fifth studio album. Their goal was $150,000, and they raised $400,000. Katy Perry, Justin Timberlake, New Kids on the Block, and Bette Midler were among the stars who contributed. Lady Gaga hopes to record a song with TLC she composed called “Posh Life.” In May 2015, TLC joined New Kids and Nelly on "The Main Event" North American tour.
