Looks like fans of the hit 90’s girl band TLC will finally get the album they have been waiting for all thanks to Kickstarter! Earlier this week, the girls launched a campaign on the crowdfunding giant seeking to raise only $150,000 so they may return to the studio for their fifth and final album. Within only a few days, they received well over their initial goal and are now heading towards doubling their efforts.
During a recent update, the ladies, Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas and Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins, announced,”This week has been amazing. We now have 2,000 backers from all over the world. OMG! We feel more love from our fans every day and feel so blessed to have your support!!!
“Our backs are making our dream of a FINAL ALBUM come true! Keep the #TLCLove coming in your comments and messages. It is INCREDIBLE to see ya’ll join together. We hope that the TLC Army can become 10,000 strong here on Kickstarter.”
As previously reported, one of the high funding donors of the project, music sensation Katy Perry, gave $5,000, which gives her a slumber party with T-Boz. TMZ reported that Perry has apparently been a huge fan of TLC and immediately gave to the campaign.
Also explaining how they are going to create the album without their fellow bandmate, Lisa “Left-Eye” Lopes, the ladies shared,”Some fans have been asking how we can make a final album without Lisa, and we wanted to share our thoughts with you all, since you have been so kind and supportive on day one. We feel that this final album will be the best way to keep Lisa’s memory alive.
“We can never replace Lisa, and we are constantly thinking of ways to incorporate her into this album. How could we not?! She’s a part of TLC. Lisa was our sister, and we know she would have loved us doing something so out of the box like this. That’s what TLC has always been about!”
The campaign is set to close on February 29th.
