This week Tionne ‘T-Boz’ Watkins released her first book, ‘A Sick Life: TLC ’n Me: Stories from On and Off the Stage‘ which according to the official release from Amazon is a candid memoir of fame, strength, family, and friendship from the lead singer of TLC.

Over the years, T-Boz has openly discussed her sickness and the struggles she faces with sickle cell disease, but now she is giving fans and the general public a detailed look behind the curtain. The singer will detail stories of her life from childhood, and on and off stage with TLC.

As the lead singer of Grammy-winning supergroup TLC, Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins has seen phenomenal fame, success, and critical acclaim. But backstage, she has lived a dual life. In addition to the balancing act of juggling an all-consuming music career and her family, Tionne has struggled since she was a young girl with sickle-cell disease―a debilitating and incurable condition that can render her unable to perform, walk, or even breathe.

A Sick Life chronicles Tionne’s journey from a sickly young girl from Des Moines who was told she wouldn’t live to see 30 through her teen years in Atlanta, how she broke into the music scene, and became the superstar musician and sickle-cell disease advocate she is today. Through Tionne’s tough, funny, tell-it-like-it-is voice, she shares how she found the inner strength, grit, and determination to live her dream, despite her often unpredictable and debilitating health issues. She dives deep into never-before-told TLC stories, including accounts of her friendship with Lisa “Left-Eye” Lopes and her tragic death. Tionne’s unvarnished discussion of her remarkable life, disease, unending strength, and ability to power through the odds offers a story like no other.

The book arrived on September 12, and just after 48 hours, it has nabbed the No. 1 spot on Amazon according to the singer who took to Twitter to share the news and thank fans.

 

Kudos to Tionne!
