ABOUT "2 THE LEFT"
2 The Left: A Tribute to the Life of Lisa 'Left Eye' Lopes is an entertaining and inspiring multimedia, one-woman show filled with music, dance, and heart about TLC's (the 90's Atlanta-bred, highest-selling girl group of all time) most controversial member "Left Eye," who tragically passed away at the age of 30. Told with her signature high energy and unabashed honesty, Lisa invites fans to an "exclusive listen" of her solo album, and takes us through pivotal moments and people throughout her life. As self-revelations begin to unearth, she's led to seek out her true purpose: encouraging her fans to do the same. Dedicated "2 The Left" in all us -- What will you live for? What will you die for? What will your legacy be?
