R&B female groups TLC and SWV (Sisters With Voices) will be holding a Manila concert this November.
Two of the most popular R&B groups of the 1990s are scheduled to perform at the Araneta Coliseum on November 6, 2016.
TLC is an acronym of all the first names of original members Tionne "T-Boz" Watkins, Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes and Rozonda "Chilli" Thomas.
The multiplatinum trio is best known for its four No. 1 singles "Creep," "Waterfalls," "No Scrubs," and "Unpretty."
According to VH1, TLC ranks as the greatest female group, placing them at No. 12 on the list of 100 Greatest Women in Music. Even Beyonce, the former lead singer of Destiny's Child, acknowledged that TLC "definitely influenced Destiny's Child."
Tragedy struck in 2002 when the Lisa, at 30 years old, was killed in a car accident in Honduras.
Instead of replacing her, the remaining members continued to retain the name TLC and perform as a duo.
In January 2015, Chilli and T-Boz announced their desire to release a fan-sponsored album by raising funds through a Kickstarter campaign. It is expected to be released by 2017.
SWV (which stands for Sisters with Voices) is comprised of three school friends: Coko (real name: Cheryl Gamble), Taj (real name: Tamara Johnson), and Lelee (real name: Leanne Lyons).
The all-female group released the hit songs "Weak," "You're Always On My Mind," "Right Here," "Can We" as well as "Someone" featuring Puff Daddy.
In 1997, SWV disbanded but briefly reunited in 2005.
According to concert organizer MMI Live, tickets to TLC and SWV Live in Manila will be available starting September 17 at 10 a.m. through TicketNet (www.ticketnet.com.ph) or call Tel. No. 911-5555.
Take a trip down memory lane through these music videos:
'90s kids will remember this definition from the TLC song No Scrubs: "A scrub is a guy that can't get no love from me..."
TLC's LSS-inducing "Waterfalls" gives advice to listeners everywhere: "Don't go chasing waterfalls" and is considered as one of the classic R&B songs of the '90s.
SWV's "Weak" was certified platinum and reached the top of the Billboard Hot 100 and the R&B charts.
SWV's "Right Here/Human Nature" is a remix of their first single that featured samples of Michael Jackson's hit "Human Nature"
