On Monday, Tionne T-BozWatkins and Rozonda ChilliThomasthe remaining members of TLClaunched a Kickstarter campaign to help fund their upcoming musical project.

Since its launch, TLCs Kickstarter campaign has already garnered $203,766 from fans-thats over $50,000 more than the campaigns initial goal to raise $150,000 in 30 days.

So why would TLCa Grammy award winning groupneed money from fans to create a new album?

Well, their Kickstarter bio explains that T-Boz and Chilli plan to create the album on their own terms and without the influence and control of a major label.

While major labels offer artists multimillion dollar recording and marketing budgets, they don't often give artists complete control of their own music. It is ESSENTIAL that we create our final album completely on our own terms, without any restrictions, with YOU. Plus, we are still singing. Its what we love to do, so WHY NOT?!,the Kickstarter bio reads.

The bio also adds that TLC will be enlisting the help of Kandi Burrusswho wrote No Scrubs”—-and will incorporate the spirit of their other group member,  the late Lisa Left EyeLopez.

One of TLCs biggest funders happens to be Katy Perry who donated 5,000 to the cause.

Naturally, the overwhelming support from fans and celebrities has made T-Boz and Chilli very happy.

"We feel highly favored and blessed and loved," Chilli recently told Yahoo! Music. It makes us feel good that these people can believe in us and know that this can happen.
