It’s hard to believe that our beloved Lisa Nicole Lopes, better known simply as “Left Eye” and one-third of the four-time Grammy-winning R&B trio TLC, has been gone from us for nearly a decade.
Born May 27, 1971, Left Eye appeared to have been a star from day one. Rapping, singing, dancing, and writing her way to the top, she and the members of TLC (T-Boz and Chilli) are what we now know as music icons, trendsetters and the real reason why R&B music is where it is today. The trio blessed us with the familiar hits “What About Your Friends,” “Creep,” “Waterfalls,” and “No Scrubs” since their debut back in 1991.
Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes departed from this world far too soon and devastated many on April 25, 2002 after fatal car accident in Honduras took her life. The world still hasn’t quite gotten over the tragic end to the superstar’s life and career, but we know that she’s somewhere in heaven looking down on each of us and reminding us to live each day as if it is our last.
Today we salute the life, legacy, the music and the memory of the late Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes. We miss you, we love you and we will never forget you! TLC lives on forever!
