Family, fans, and music lovers gathered at Porter Sanford III Performing Arts Center on Saturday(July 28th) for the First Annual Left Eye Music Fest. The day was chocked full of fun and a lot of love for Left Eye.
The stylish OMG Girlz got a huge surprise as they hosted the Kids Concert, the first of three scheduled shows. While introducing the next performance, TLC’s Chilli joined them on the stage. “I started crying when I saw her,” explained Miss Beauty of the ever popular trio of pop stars.
Currently working on a TLC biopic, Chilli spoke from the heart and explained how she respects the Lopes family. “They always work so hard to make sure people remember Lisa,” said the singer, actress and mother. After pulling their emotions together, the OMG Girlz continued to host the show which boasted performances by Domani Harris aka D-Money(rapper TI’s son and star of VH1’s “TI & Tiny: The Family Hustle”), Cymia Telleria (Cash Money Records), Gabbie Rae (Purple Ribbon Kids), Alix Lapri (Crown World Entertainment), and the New KnERDS, a group of young educational activists spawned from the Lisa Lopes Foundation. Lisa’s younger sister, Reigndrop Lopes, the queen of “hip-rock”, also performed.
“We will definitely be doing this again next year but this time we are going to start planning in January so we can make it even bigger and better,” said Ronald Lopes, Lisa’s younger brother who manages the Lisa Lopes Foundation.
The event was held in honor of rapper Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes, who died in a tragic death in a car accident in Honduras ten years ago.
