Liputan6.com, Los Angeles Masih ingat dengan grup vokal wanita yang tenar di era 90-an dan awal 2000-an TLC? Dua personel yang tersisa dari TLC, T-Boz dan Chilli akan segera menggarap album terbaru sekaligus terakhir mereka. Namun, untuk melakukannya mereka meminta sumbangan kepada para penggemarnya.

"Tanpa kalian, kami tak mungkin punya 10 lagu top 10 dan empat lagu nomor satu. Kami tak mungkin punya lima Grammy dan menjual 65 juta keping album di seluruh dunia," ungkap TLC dalam sebuah peryataan seperti dilansir Digital Spy, baru-baru ini.

Membutuhkan dana sebanyak US$ 150.000 atau sekitar Rp 1,8 miliar, mereka meluncurkan kampanye penggalangan dana tersebut belum lama, dan berhasil mengumpulkan US$ 100.000 atau sekitar Rp 1,2 miliar dalam 48 jam pertama.  Dan ternyata hal tersebut turut menarik perhatian Katy Perry. Ia  pun lalu menyumbang sebesar US$ 5.000 atau sekitar Rp 62,5 juta untuk mendukung TLC sehingga target US$ 150.000 mereka tercapai.



"A BIG Special THANK YOU 2 @katyperry for her pledge to our #Kickstarter Campaign!Your awesome!," tulis T-Bozz via akun Twitter pribadinya @TheRealTBOZ belum lama.

Tak hanya kepada Katy Perry, TLC pun tak lupa berterima kasih kepada para penggemarnya yang telah menyumbang.

"Thank you SO MUCH to everyone who donated to our campaign!! Xx We are thrilled to have so much love and support from fans! It means so much!," tulis akun resmi TLC @officialTLC.

Beranggotakan Tionne "T-Boz" Watkins, Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes, dan Rozonda "Chilli" Thomas, TLC meraih sukses besar di era 90-an dan awal 2000-an. Album perdananya Ooooooohhh... On the TLC Tip yang rilsi 1992 lalu terjual sebanyak enam juta keping di seluruh dunia. Sepanjang karirnya TLC telah menjual lebih dari 65 juta keping album di seluruh dunia dan juga memenangkan empat Grammy Awards.

Lirik Lagu `Waterfalls` - TLC

A lonely mother gazing out of her window
Staring at a son that she just can't touch
If at any time he's in a jam she'll be by his side
But he doesn't realize he hurts her so much

But all the praying just ain't helping at all
'Cause he can't seem to keep his self out of trouble
So he goes out and he makes his money the best way he knows how
Another body laying cold in the gutter
Listen to me

[Chorus:]
Don't go chasing waterfalls
Please stick to the rivers and the lakes that you're used to
I know that you're gonna have it your way or nothing at all
But I think you're moving too fast

Little precious has a natural obsession
For temptation but he just can't see
She gives him loving that his body can't handle
But all he can say is "Baby, it's good to me."

One day he goes and takes a glimpse in the mirror
But he doesn't recognize his own face
His health is fading and he doesn't know why
Three letters took him to his final resting place
Y'all don't hear me

[Chorus (2x)]

Come on

I seen a rainbow yesterday
But too many storms have come and gone
Leavin' a trace of not one God-given ray
Is it because my life is ten shades of gray
I pray all ten fade away
Seldom praise Him for the sunny days

And like His promise is true
Only my faith can undo
The many chances I blew
To bring my life to anew
Clear blue and unconditional skies
Have dried the tears from my eyes
No more lonely cries

My only bleedin' hope
Is for the folk who can't cope
With such an endurin' pain
That it keeps 'em in the pourin' rain
Who's to blame
For tootin' 'caine into your own vein
What a shame
You shoot and aim for someone else's brain
You claim the insane
And name this day in time
For fallin' prey to crime
I say the system got you victim to your own mind
Dreams are hopeless aspirations
In hopes of comin' true
Believe in yourself
The rest is up to me and you

[Chorus (2x)]
