T-Boz on How TLC Became the Baddest, Best-Selling Girl Group of All Time

By most measures, TLC was the most successful girl group in popular music history. And T Boz, the “T” in TLC, attained that success while dealing with sickle cell anemia, overcoming the usual doubters and haters, and shutting up everyone who tried to tell her that she should fit into the stereotypical roles that women are encouraged to play. On this episode of Women of Impact, Lisa Bilyeu gets to interview one of her childhood heroes, the incredibly resilient and cheerfully outspoken T Boz. They discuss living with chronic illness, the importance of not holding grudges, and why it’s so important to believe in yourself when others doubt you.
