The surviving members of the musical group TLC, Chilli and T-Boz, were honored with the Outstanding Contribution to Music at the MOBO Awards (Music of Black Origin Awards) Saturday night held in Liverpool, England. The annual MOBO Awards has become one of the most televised music shows in the world, and showcases the best British and international urban music talent.

Chilli and T-Boz believe that Honduran Lisa “Left-Eye” Lopes is still a part of the TLC band, a decade after her death, and are planning a musical tour.

T-Boz announced that she will be staying in London for a few days, “Tonight was a blessing… and I’ll be in London three more days writing in the studio. I’ll keep you posted on who I’m working with.”

Early next year, VH1 will be premiering a docu-series which includes the evolution of  TLC, written by Kate Lanier.  Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins will be starring, and both she and Chilli signed on to consult and produce the film. “I always felt our story had to be told,” Chilli said.

The Grammy Award-winning musical trio sold 23 million copies of their second studio album, CrazySexyCool.
