Remembering Left Eye, 10 Years After Her Death
Ten years ago today (April 25), hip-hop and R&B lost a great soul too soon. Rapper, singer, dancer and songwriter, Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes lost her life in a fatal car accident in Roma, Honduras at the age of 30.

Lopes was was working on a documentary of her "spiritual journey" and headed to herbal healing village, The Usha Herbal Resource Institute, when she lost control of her rented Mitsubishi, veered off the road and turned over several times. Lopes died on the scene.
Lopes is best known as being the outspoken, feisty rapper in R&B group TLC. (The "crazy" one from the "crazy, sexy, cool" trio.) The multi-platinum group was behind such Hot 100 No. 1 hits as "No Scrubs," "Waterfalls" and "Unpretty." The act's 1999 album "FanMail" debuted on top of the Billboard 200 and Billboard's Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart. TLC sold 15.6 million albums in the U.S. and is the second-biggest selling female R&B group of the past 20 years, according to Nielsen SoundScan. There's no doubt that TLC revamped the girl group in the '90s and paved way for other acts like Destiny's Child.
