Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes
Lisa Nicole Lopes, aka “Left Eye”, was born on May 27, 1971 in Philadelphia, PA. Lisa was the unabashedly outspoken and controversial member of the 90s Atlanta-bred Hip-Hop R&B trio TLC, the highest selling American girl group of all time. Their multi-platinum albums Ooooooohhh... On the TLC Tip, CrazySexyCool (Certified Diamond) featuring their groundbreaking hit “Waterfalls”, Fanmail, and 3D have won multiple awards including 4 Grammys.
TLC revolutionized 90s culture, trendsetting a new sound, style of clothes, dances, and groundbreaking imagery in their music videos and Lisa was at the helm of conceiving most of their cutting-edge ideas. Known for her gifted rapping and lyricist prowess as well as her innovative creative, business, and spiritual insights, Lisa’s many endeavors outside of TLC included: performing on chart-topping hits most notably Donell Jones’ “U Know What’s Up” and Lil Kim, et al. “Not Tonight (Remix)”, hosting the MTV television series “The Cut”, starting a clothing line, releasing her solo album “Supernova”, and creating a production company that discovered the platinum selling group Blaque as well as her newest group Egypt who she was in the midst of developing when she tragically passed away on April 25, 2002 in a car accident in Honduras at the tender age of 30. Her posthumous album “Eye Legacy” was released in 2009.
Along with her many contributions, Lisa ventured along a journey of mind, body, and spiritual healing that encompassed numerous visits with her teacher, herbalist, and friend, Dr. Sebi at his Usha Village in La Ceiba, Honduras. During her later years, she began inviting her family and friends on her trips endeavoring to share her findings with them.
