"As younger brother to the late Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes, I am excited to express my unwavering support for Kerisse and her play "2 The Left". Kerisse has done an amazing job of capturing elements of Lisa's personality and creating a theatrical production. She has put all her heart and passion into her work.... I believe Kerisse's play will, at last, let the world get to know the authentic Lisa Lopes, thus continuing her legacy and her message of maintaining a healthy body, mind, and soul.... We are pleased to offer Kerisse our continued support during the development and execution of her project about our beloved Lisa. She has proven herself time and again to be an invaluable asset. In my humble opinion, Kerisse is exactly the type of person able to execute a project such as this and reach audiences across the globe."
2 The Left: A Tribute to the Life of Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes is an entertaining and inspiring multimedia, one-woman show filled with music, dance, and heart about TLC's (the 90's Atlanta-bred, highest-selling girl group of all time) most controversial member "Left Eye," who tragically passed away at the age of 30. Told with her signature high energy and unabashed honesty, Lisa invites fans to an exclusive listen of her solo album "Supernova", and takes us through pivotal moments and people throughout her life. As self-revelations begin to unearth, she's led to seek out her true purpose: encouraging her fans to do the same.
Dedicated 2 The Left in us.
