Lisa “Left Eye” Lopez (pictured on the left in this album cover) of TLC has been killed in a car crash in Honduras. The singer, 30, was on vacation when the car she was travelling in was involved in the fatal accident. She was travelling with 7 other passengers at the time, the rest of which survived.
TLC have had several hits since they arrived on the scene in 1990. They’d won numerous awards including a Grammy for the 1999 album Fan Mail. More recently, Lisa had sung with Melanie C on her track “Never Be The Same Again” and had released her own album.
LA Reid, president of Arista records, said “No words can possibly express the sorrow and sadness I feel for this most devastating loss.”
“Lisa was not only a gifted and talented musical inspiration, but more importantly, she was like a daughter to me.
“My thoughts and prayers are with Lisa’s family and friends. Her legacy will be remembered forever.”
