TLC launch Kickstarter campaign to fund their fifth and final album
They're not chasing waterfalls...they're chasing $150,000
Veteran 90's R&B girl group, TLC, have reappeared onto the scene with a Kickstarter campaign to fund their fifth and final album. On their kickstarter page, T-Boz and Chilli appeal to their dedicated "amazing fans", in a personal video address, to help fund a new and independent album, so they can make the album their way and "make the music we want to make".
The target fund is $150,000 and they have until February 19 to hit the target and bring their dreams of a new album to life. So far they are about 60% of the way there, with staunch fans of the group already committing combined pledges to the value of $95,000.
To show their appreciation TLC have outlined a host of incentives for fans to contribute to and be part of the new album, including: A handwritten list of their top 15 favourite songs, a dance video-tutorial, a phone call from the group, a date at the movies with either T-Boz or Chilli, and for $5,000, you can even have a TLC slumber party.
The band lost Lisa 'Left-Eye' Lopes in 2002 when she tragically died in car crash in Honduras. The remaining members struggled to come to terms with their loss both personally and professionally and they struggled to achieve the same chart success they had previously enjoyed. TLC fan's have felt a deep connection with the group through the ups and downs, which were well documented in the 2013 biopic of the group: Crazy, Sexy, Cool: The TLC Story. The group hopes that this bond and support will help take them over the finish line of their funding goals so they can make a fan-funded, collaborative final record.
