On June 9, 2019, Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins held a house party for her fans that had paid to go to her annual charity event, ‘T-Boz Unplugged‘, following last months announcement of the cancellation of this years show.
Many of her diehard fans were in attendance, including the lovely Carl, one of the biggest TLC fans ever! Here’s how his night at the party went down, in his own words!🎉
“Fans arrived around 5:30pm. T-Boz arrived around 5:45pm. She went downstairs to prep for the event. A steady flow of fans kept arriving throughout the beginning of the party.
The first thing that fans had to do was give their phones up. We received a ticket that matched the ticket of our phones. Also, the fans were treated to food and drinks. It was a reunion for a lot of TLC fans. There was a lot of “Hellos” and hugging.
There was a music mix of TLC songs and today’s hit songs. The house was hot! The AC couldn’t keep up with all the hot bodies. The windows and patio door had to be opened to funnel some of the heat out of the house.
T-Boz was downstairs and a line formed to go down and take pics with her. Finally, the hostess, T-Boz, came from downstairs to make her appearance and to hang with the fans. She hugged and mingled with so many fans. She showed a lot of love. She gave everyone their special time with her.
The food flowed steadily. It was a lot of talking and mingling. T-Boz was showered with gifts. Next, there was more dancing. T-Boz and about three fans started a TLC dance class. The fans did TLC dances and was taught some TLC moves.
Other fans watched while the dancing was going on. One request was made by one fan. The fan wanted to hear one of T-Boz’s solo songs. The song was “Stronger Than You Know.” T-Boz had the DJ play the song and said that it was one of her original oldest songs that she had written.
After the dancing, everyone clapped. There was so much fun going on. T-Boz mingled some more then she headed downstairs for more pictures. Fans got to take pictures with T-Boz in a photo booth as well as professional pics by a photographer. This was the second round of pics.
The line formed and people went down one by one to have their pic time with T-Boz. After all the pics were taken, the event was coming to a close. Fans started to head home. Some lingered a bit.
Finally, the event was over. It was one of the best TLC experiences fans could have ever had. Fans got to actually hang out with the person they so admired. T-Boz was very gracious. She was happy. She apologized for the situation.
Oh, also, T-Boz’s daughter was at the event and partying with us as well. Chase is very sweet and giving to let us take time out with her Mama. Fun was had by all. This event will never be forgotten.
Much love to T-Boz, Chase, the photographer, the chef, and the rest of the crew. The event was a success!!!!”
