TLC’s Tionne ‘T-Boz’ Watkins on Living With Sickle Cell Disease
Singer Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins is opening up about her battle with an incurable disease and how it affected her singing career as a member of the pop group TLC.
Watkins’ new memoir, “A Sick Life: TLC ‘n Me: Stories from On and Off the Stage,” describes how she has been able to overcome the difficulties of living with sickle cell disease.
“The title means so much for me,” Watkins told Robin Roberts in an exclusive interview on “GMA.” “It’s a strong word, ‘a sick life,’ ’cause I’ve had it all. I was told I would never live past 30; I would be disabled my whole life and never have kids.”
“But, no. Like I’ve traveled the world in TLC. I’ve worked with Michael Jackson,” the singer continued.
