'TLC' turns to fans to create final album
20 years after they hit it big, the R&B group TLC is ready to call it quits, but not before releasing one last album with the help of their fans.
The five-time Grammy award winners say they want to create music that is completely their own without a major label.
The group which now consists of Tionne 'T-Boz' Watkins and Rozonda 'Chilli' Thomas following the death of band-mate Lisa 'Left Eye' Lopes in 2002, took to Kickstarter—the online crowd-funding site-- to announce their plans:
"We will send ALL BACKERS who pledge $5 or MORE a list of tracks we want to remix. YOU will vote on your favorite, and the track with the most votes will be included on the album!!
Every penny we raise during this campaign will go towards MAKING this final album together with you! The initial goal of $150,000 will go towards a writing session in the studio with a producer and engineer. The money beyond that will go to booking music producers, writing sessions, mixing sessions, recording sessions, and SO much more."
As of Tuesday, more than $56,000 had been raised.
