Profile Bio Text
TLC began life as a female trio called Second Nature. The group evolved into TLC - the letters of the band made up of the first initials of the three members - Tionne, Lisa and Crystal . Things didn`t work out with Crystal, and TLC`s manager Perri "Pebbles" Reid brought in her back up dancer, Rozonda Thomas as a third member of the group. To keep the "initial" theme of the band`s name, Rozonda needed a name starting with C, so took on the nickname Chilli. Fellow bandmate Tionne Watkins became T-Boz, while Lisa renamed herself Left Eye, as she had once been told she had beautiful eyes, "particularly the left one." Left Eye celebrated her nickname by wearing glasses with a condom over her left eye, later evolving to a black stripe under the eye.
The group appeared on the scene in 1992 with the album Ooooooohhh.... On the TLC Tip. With three hit singles, it sold 4 million copies and TLC became household names. After a few years` break, TLC came back with CrazySexyCool, selling over 11 million copies and cementing TLC as one of the biggest female groups of all time.
TLC`s third album Fanmail came out in (1999). Lopes said she got the idea for the album`s title as a tribute to TLC`s loyal fans. The album`s sleeve contained the names of hundreds of fans as a thankyou to everyone who supported them.

Lisa Nicole Lopes (May 27, 1971 – April 25, 2002), better known by her stage name "Left Eye," was an American rapper, dancer, musician, and songwriter.

Lopes contributed her self-written raps to many of TLC's hit singles, including "Ain't 2 Proud 2 Beg", "What About Your Friends", "Hat 2 da Back", "No Scrubs", "Waterfalls", "Girl Talk". Lopes won four Grammy Awards for her work with TLC. On April 25, 2002, Lopes was killed in an automobile accident in La Ceiba, Honduras. She was driving the vehicle, when she swerved off the road to avoid hitting another vehicle. She was thrown from her own vehicle and later died from her injuries. The last days of her life were filmed from March 30, 2002 until her death on April 25, 2002, including the accident that took her life. The footage was made into a documentary called The Last Days of Left Eye. It aired on VH1's rock docs on May 19, 2007, eight days prior to Lopes' 36th birthday.
