Remembering Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes

Today marks 9 years since the very talented Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes passed away. Who can forget the rapper with unlimited swagger, thought-provoking rap lyrics, and bold fashion concepts. Left Eye was 1/3 of the globally known Grammy award winning r&b/hip hop trio TLC. The group spawned several hits including the platinum selling singles: “Ain’t 2 Proud 2 Beg“, “Baby, Baby, Baby“, “Creep“, “Waterfalls“, and “No Scrubs“. Lisa began working on her solo career after TLC ended promotions for their third album “FanMail“. She appeared on several singles by other artists, including the hit “Never Be The Same Again” by former Spice Girl Melanie C. Lopes also developed the “Left Eye Productions” to help launch the career of talents, including r&b group Blaque.  

Left Eye launched The Lisa Lopes Foundation to help neglected and abandoned youths by providing them with the necessary resources to increase their quality of life. A charity that she personally relates with, as she struggled with abuse throughout her life. She rejoined TLC for the trio’s fourth and final studio album “3D“, and upon completion Lisa traveled to Honduras with her family and friends on what she called a spiritual journey. 

Lisa Lopes died on April 25, 2002 in a car accident in Honduras. Five years after her death, a documentary titled “The Last Days of Left Eye“, which depicted the star’s final 26 days on earth, was screened at the Atlanta Film Festival in April 2007. Lisa leaves behind not only her music, but also the memories she shared with all those who came in contact with her. She’s described as well-rounded and down-to-earth, kind, honest, and talented in all aspects. She is certainly not forgotten, but definitely missed.
