TLC’s T-Boz And Friends To Perform Charity Concert For Sickle Cell Awareness

T-Boz’s charity concert Sunday for sickle cell awareness started with a dream.

T-Boz, real name Tionne Watkins, said she told friend and collaborator Raphael Saadiq she dreamt they were performing together on stage.
“I told him, ‘When I had the dream, I saw you next to me holding a bass,’ T-Boz told BOSSIP. “So, we’re making my dream come true.”

The four-time Grammy award winner will headline the “T-Boz And Friends” acoustic concert in Los Angeles this weekend to raise money—and awareness—of the inherited blood disorder.
Besides Saadiq, Faith Evans, “The Vampire Diaries” actress Kat Graham and T-Boz’s girl group, ATLA, will perform at the one night only show.
“It should be a fun night,” T-Boz said, adding that she’ll perform a special rendition of the TLC hit, “Waterfalls.”

The proceeds will benefit the Sickle Cell Foundation, a charity T-Boz said she’s been working with for years.
“I love the work that they do, and I know the money goes to a good cause,” she said. “It helps children and parents.”
“It goes to a lot of things that people may not think about unless they’re ill.”

T-Boz has struggled with sickle cell anemia all of life.

“I was born this way,” T-Boz said. “So it makes me more relatable than the average celebrity.”

Viewers can stream the concert online through the Chideo website.
