*Tionne ‘T-Boz’ Watkins won’t let anything keep her down or stop her from achieving her dreams.

Before becoming a real life superstar, the TLC member was diagnosed with Sickle Cell Anemia and was told she would not live past 30 years old or have children.

She’s proved them wrong and lives a successful, yet trial filled life.

Back to ruling the world through her life of music, she’s getting ready to release new music and a reality show.

“I just got back on my feet after losing my sight, my balance, my hearing and my speech and I’ve been the kind of person where, I’m an open book about the things I want the people to know and whatever is not your business is not your business. I feel God spared me so if I can help someone along the way and have fun doing it. I’m not doing anything willy nilly, there’s a lot of people that can gain something and hopefully learn something from it,” she said. “Another reason is that I know technology has advanced so much and it has helped me so if I can help someone, it is a wonderful thing. A lot of my life will come out during the show, everyone knows me as a singer/dancer, but that is not the only thing that I do. So you will know more about me in depth because there’s a lot of things people didn’t know, like I write songs for other artists, I am a single mother, that alone is a job within itself.”

In her interview with SingersRoom.com, she also discusses her journey to the top, the challenges, the successes, the transitions between cities, life changes and so much more.
