Born on May 27, 1971, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Lisa Lopes was one of the four members of the Grammy-winning American hip-hop group TLC. Her mother is Wanda Denise (née Andino), a seamstress and her father is Ronald Lopes Sr., a US Army staff sergeant.
According to Lisa, her father was very strict and very domineering and she felt like they were in a BootCamp growing up but she also said that her father was a very talented musician who played different kinds of instruments like piano, saxophone, clarinet, harmonica and many more.
Lisa’s parents divorced when she was still young and her grandmother from her father’s side was the one who raised her.
Lisa started playing the keyboard and composed her own songs when she was still around 7 years old. When she turned 10 years old, she formed a musical group called “The Lopes Kids” with her siblings. They sang gospel songs at some events and in the church.
Lisa’s music career started in earnest when she met Tionne Watkins and Rozonda Thomas. The three of them bonded over their shared interest in music and decided to form a girl group. They were later joined by drummer, Anthony “TC” Crump.

They released their debut album, Ooooooohhh… On the TLC Tip in 1992 and it was an instant success. The album went multi-platinum and spawned several hit singles like “Ain’t Too Proud to Beg”, “Baby-Baby-Baby” and “What About Your Friends”.
TLC went on to release several more albums over the next decade including CrazySexyCool (1994), FanMail (1999) and TLC (2002). The group sold more than 75 million records worldwide, making them one of the best-selling girl groups of all time.
