T-Boz

Tionne Tenese Watkins (born April 26, 1970) better known by her stage name T-Boz, is a four-time Grammy Award–winning American singer, actress, author, and executive producer who rose to fame as the lead singer and one-third of the highly successful R&B;/Hip-Hop girl group TLC. Tionne "T-Boz" Watkins was born in Des Moines, Iowa. She is of both African American and Native American descent. As a child, Watkins was diagnosed with sickle-cell anemia; her parents both have the homozygous recessive trait which one in 12 people of African descent have. Since the age of seven, Watkins has been in and out of hospitals due to her condition. Watkins' family moved from Des Moines to Atlanta, Georgia, when she was nine years old. Because of her disease Watkins was not expected to live past her 30s, but has done so.
