tlc-final-album-kickstarter-leadFormed in Atlanta in 1991, TLC captured the world’s attention with their sassy attitude, sophisticated R&B feel and socially conscious lyrical style. Comprised of Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins, rapper Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes, and Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas, the trio is largely considered one of the most important and successful female R&B groups of all time, selling over 22 million albums in the United States alone. On their 1992 debut, Ooooooohhh…On the TLC Tip, the group unleashed a cool blend of hip-hop and R&B reminiscent of the “new jack swing” of the late ‘80s, rounding out their hook-laden sound with flamboyant wardrobes and vibrant, attention-grabbing energy. In 1994, TLC displayed a remarkable newfound maturity with CrazySexyCool, this time around offering a smoother and more mid-tempo gem of an album that went on to sell over 11 million copies in the U.S. alone, won a Grammy for Best R&B Album and included such chart-topping hits as “Creep” and “Waterfalls”. TLC’s highly anticipated third album, FanMail, was released in 1999 to rave reviews, including such crossover sensations as “No Scrubs” and “Unpretty” and, like its predecessor, won the Best R&B Album Grammy. Tragically in 2002, Lopes was killed in a car accident while spending time in Honduras. Refusing to call it quits in honor of their fallen sister, T-Boz and Chilli completed and released 3D that same year, and have continued to tour world wide and star in various TV projects since then. The group has found new fans and a fresh round of popularity after the record breaking debut of their VH1 film Crazy Sexy Cool which chronicles their rise to fame and their struggles along the way. They are in the studio preparing a new album, their first in over a decade.

Affectionately known as the “Real Funky Divas” with 20 million albums sold, multiple Grammy nominations, American Music Awards and163333a Soul Train awards, En Vogue is celebrated as the ultimate girl group of the 90’s. They have sustained their evolving look and sound and today, En Vogue is redefining the idea of beauty, music and style with original members Cindy Herron-Braggs, Terry Ellis and long-standing member Rhona Bennett. Formed in Oakland, California, En Vogue has produced top 10 hits such as “Hold On”, “My Lovin’ (You’re Never Gonna Get It)”, “Giving Him Something He Can Feel” and “Free Your Mind”. The group’s accolades include more than 20 million records sold worldwide. The group also earned seven MTV Video Music Awards.
