Claim to Fame:
For many, Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes simply was TLC who jacked the pop charts with a blend of soul and rap that preached safe sex and self-reliance. Two years after their first album was released, TLC went on to garner international fame with their second album CrazySexyCool selling over 4 million albums. On April 25th, just weeks before her 31st birthday, the outspoken Lopes died in a car wreck while on a spiritual retreat at a “healing village” in Honduras.

Not-So-Fun Fact

In a sadly eerie twist, “Left Eye” Lopes, who was killed in a car crash in Honduras, was riding in a van that fatally struck a 10-year-old Honduran boy weeks before her own death. The accident claimed the life of Bayron Isaul Fuentes Lopez.

Lopes was a passenger in a Mitsubishi driven by her personal assistant near the Reyes Caballero neighborhood on when the boy suddenly stepped off the median. The TLC singer paid $3,700 for the child’s medical care and funeral, and also gave the boy’s family $925.
