T-BOZ "T-Boz" was born April 26, 1970 in Des Moines, Iowa, as Tionne Tenese Watkins. She is the main singer and business head of TLC. She began singing in church at a young age, and later began singing with TLC. Some of the people that influenced her in the music biz were Prince and Patti Labelle. Tionne has done other things beside singing with TLC. She released a song entitled "Touch Myself" for the Fled soundtrack and played "Tionne" in the 1998 movie,"Belly". These are just a few of the things that make Tionne Tionne; or should I say, make Tionne "T-boz".
