Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes: Your tributes
Thousands of people have attended the funeral of R&B singer Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes, of the group TLC.
A capacity crowd of about 10,000 people filled New Birth Missionary Baptist Church in the Atlanta suburb of Lithonia for the 30-year-old singer's funeral.
The singer, who sold 20 million albums with TLC and had solo success, died in a car crash in Honduras on 25 April.
TLC have had global success with songs such as No Scrubs and Waterfalls.
Their most recent album, 1999's FanMail topped the US pop album charts for five weeks, and won the Grammy for best R&B album the following year.
Thank you for your tributes to Lisa Lopes. Read a selection of your comments below.
You were an inspiration, a role model for young women everywhere. You are sadly missed. Rest in peace.
Cheteeka Mckelvy, U.S.A
Rest in peace. My deepest sympathy for her family and friends.
Lisa will always be in my heart and everyone else heart. She will be remembered as crazy, sexy and cool.
To the rest of the duo of TLC keep your head up. You are still the number one group in the world that can do anything
by God's grace. Lisa is in a better place- she will not suffer or worry anymore. God Bless everyone!
I would like to give my deepest sympathy to family and friends of Lisa Lopes. May God forever and continue to bless her family and close friends. May she rest in peace and I want everyone to know to don't worry she is in a better place and Lisa Lopes will be missed. I want T'boz and Chilli to know that Lisa Lopes will always love you and will never forget you. I know you all are taking it hard but I want you all to know that to keep your head up high.
This is such a tremendous loss to the music industry but also to the fans. I know personally that TLC was by far the best female R&B group out there and their music was always at the top of the boards. CrazySexyCool was their best album and I look forward to the new release. You go girls, Lisa would have wanted you to continue on with TLC! My sympathy to all friends, family and fans.
We were very sorry to hear of the tragic loss, Lisa was a great rap artist, and she will always be remembered. RIP Lisa.
Lisa you where an inspiration! As everyone else has said before you will be greatly missed. RIP
I am left eye biggest fan I mean I am in shock and still can't believe she's gone. Lisa you will always be in my heart, I am gonna miss you.
I Love you Lisa Lopes.
I don't know what to say actually...I'm just shock to hear the news... I really like TLC so much and Lisa was my favourite... Good night Lisa may God bless your soul!
When I first herd about the death of Lisa "left eye" Lopes I didn't want to believe it. But when I got home from school and turned on the TV, that was it. By the time I was out of shock I listened to all of the TLC CDs and just cried. My thoughts and prayers go out to all her family, friends, Chilli and T-Boz. GOD BLESS.
Chandria Smith, USA
Lisa - you and your unique rapping style will be truly missed.
My prayers are with her family, T'Boz, Chilli and friends.
Hearing about Left Eye's tragic death brought me back to being 12 years old again, the age I was when TLC's first record came out. I feel like I grew up with her raps, and I'm absolutely devastated that she is gone and I never had the pleasure of meeting her. Left Eye was a gift to this world, she was an inspiration to grow up listening to, and she shall never be forgotten.
She is an angel gone to where she belongs and will be well and truly missed. She was my role model and she will always will be. Even though she is out of sight she is still in mind.
Emma and Whitney, Australia
Although you have left this land I know you will be watching over us as an angel. Ms Lopes we love you, we miss you, and we thank you. Take care.
When I turned on MTV on Friday I couldn't believe that she was actually dead. She was such a young and talented artist and will be missed. I'm sorry for TLC and her friends and family.
I don't know what to say cos she was my favourite artist in the group. We are all definitely going to miss her. Just pray that the other members of the group hold on and do what she would have wanted them to do.
Dearest Lisa, I cannot put into words exactly what and how we feel. I shall simply pen this, in honour of you. I was once told that you take so much from life that you must give something back. You my dear, gave back to millions. You my dear, never forgot. You are one of the few who can now sit and rap with GOD! Lisa, I am so sorry to have known you so briefly. I just cannot find the words. Our hearts are weeping, and our prayers too your family. Rest peacefully Lisa, because He has given you a new opportunity!
I was shocked and devastated to hear about her death. A sad loss to the remaining band. There are other female artists that have gone to the white clouds, and Lisa Left Eye will be up there.
James Kennett, England
I can't believe it. Lisa provided an extra element to TLC with her flavour, talent and performance abilities. She has had many positive influences in upcoming artists and has created a standard for the industry. She will be greatly missed.
We will always remember you through your music, your cute voice, your craziness, your power and your realness! Rest in peace Lisa!
RIP Lisa - R&B will rock the skies.
To the family and TLC, energy can't be destroyed. Lisa's spirit will live in the hearts of all who allow it. Be strong.
I just can't believe another R&B star has died. My heart and prayers goes out to the family.
Left Eye was my inspiration. I loved her in House Party - she had so much style and grace. She will be deeply missed. We love you Left Eye - rest in peace
It is very sad to have another tragic loss. It seems almost impossible. My heart goes out to Lisa's family.
I am very sad. First I lost my role model Aaliyah, now Left Eye. She was truly a nice person. Every time that a song of hers came on I only knew her part. She will be truly missed by me.
I followed the career of TLC and thought they were very talented and beautiful ladies. I looked at them as like my own daughters.
Neil Habershon, UK
Sorry to hear a talented singer and just a human gone off this earth,
Such a great loss to all, and I send my deepest sympathy to all her friends, family and fans like me. She will live on in our hearts and every time we listen to one of her fantastic songs we will think of her...don't worry...Lisa "Left-Eye" Lopes will never be forgotten. RIP.
I was really shocked when I heard what happened. Lisa was just starting to grow with her music, her new album was supposed to be released later this year. I will truly miss Lisa and I am deeply saddened by the loss. Rest in peace, Lisa. And my deepest sympathies go out to Lisa's family and friends.
My shock has still not set in yet. I am still trying to get over the Aaliyah incident. Aaliyah and my daughter attended the same high school. So it is very hard when it hits so close to home. Lisa was someone I could admire for her attitude and how she would not take anything that was just dished to her.
Lisa was the joker, the one to have fun. The one who rapped so well. The one I will always love and remember. R.I.P.
To the woman who introduced me to the world of R&B and gave me the chance to enjoy some of the greatest music of my generation; each song holds with it a different memory from my past and you will live forever in the hearts and souls of all your fans through the amazing words and rhythm of your work. God bless you. My thoughts are with her 'sisters' Tionne and Rozonda, and with all her family and friends. Rest in peace Lisa. xxx
First Aaliyah, now Lisa. I am very shocked!
Lisa has always been my most lovable role model and it hurts that I have nobody to look up to now! I'm just wondering who I can love and look up to now!
Oh my God! Lisa I love you. RIP.
Having been born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio, US, where Andre Rison, "Left Eye's" husband played football for a few years, I got to meet them both and found "Left Eye" to be a shy, tender, pretty young girl that I easily fell in love with as a fan.
I have personal memories of her and Andre Rison, when she signed my son's football cap and remember the private discussions we had together word for word.
I'm truly sad she is gone and will miss her dearly.
Nichola T, England
Just like Aaliyah, Lisa was a great performer and will be missed.
Lisa "Left Eye'' Lopes, you were one in a million and your style, your creativity was so original. You will be sadly missed by all. My condolences go out to your family, T-BOZ and CHILLI, y'all stay up. The Lord wanted her to come home. Peace and love.
This was a shock for me this morning to read such sad news about Lisa Lopes' death. You were such a talent young lady, you will be truly missed.
Another bright star gone. My condolences and prayers go out to her family and friends. Lisa, rest in peace.
Stephanie Bell, US
My heart goes out to the family and close friends of Lisa Lopes. She will forever live on but will be sadly missed.
I'm really sorry to see Lisa pass away. TLC was one of my favourite bands during middle school. You'll be missed.
My tribute to an amazing woman, who inspired me with WaterFalls, No Scrubs and Never Be The Same Again! Lisa, we will never forget you! The world loves you.
I'm very sorry to hear about Lisa. She was a talented person and will be missed. My prayers go out to her family and friends.
I was shocked when I heard that she died. I just would like to say I'm praying for her family.
I came back from school to hear of your death - I can't believe that you are gone. Your rapping was unique and we have now lost a wonderful person.
I'm very sorry to hear about Lisa. She was a talented person and will be missed. My prayers go out to her family and friends.
What a sad day!
She was so great.
Alexis Armas, Venezuela
Lopes was an entertainer that rose above the controversy and the group's turmoil and still maintained being a host to many shows and being seen and heard by the media. Someone to be remembered.
I cried when I heard the news at 6:00 am in my sleep I heard my sister say she was dead. I love TLC and she played a major part in the group. People say she was bad but in all she was misunderstood by most people.
I feel we have witnessed a major potential be cut short so cruelly. 26 April receives yet another blow. May God bless Lisa.
I am very shocked at the tragic death of Lisa Lopes. It is deeply upsetting when a life is cut short due to such accidents. My heart goes out to her friends and family.
You were a talented and bright artist. You flew high with the birds. You blew us all away with your voice and smile. Now that you are gone, you'll fly with the angels of heaven. As you look down at all of us who will truly miss you, each tear that rolls down our face is a tear of joy knowing your in a better place. Live each day to the fullest as we will all truly miss you. You were an inspiration to us young fans.
Rest in peace Lisa
Well I'm still in shock really, she was a fresh, energetic, talented and engaging young lady. Her music appeals to all generations she will always be remembered. R.I.P Lisa.
Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes was my favourite member of TLC. My thoughts and prayers go out to her family and friends. I feel I have lost a friend, her music spoke out for freedom and vitality and self-belief.
Left Eye will be truly missed by her fans, friends, and family. She appeared to be the kind of person to always bring sunshine on a rainy day, and put a smile on your face. Left Eye memories will live forever.
It's hard to see such a young and vibrant life taken away so soon. My prayers go out to the family. Just remember God will never put more on you than you can bear.
I was so shocked when I heard, she was only 30! She was a brilliant musician, and I'm sure she'll be remembered the world over for her liveliness and great talent forever. A great loss to music. My condolences to everyone who loved her.
Lisa will be sadly missed. She was a great rap artist and TLC will never be the same.
Goodbye Lisa. You will be missed girl. You were da bomb and will always be remembered.
I am so, so, so sorry that this had happen to her. I know that i was one of her fans, and I can't believe that this happen to Lisa. RIP.
In this world you were only one, but to one you are the world!
Forever your fan.
May her soul rest in peace. God bless us all.
Words can't describe what I'm feeling right now... it's the same feeling I had when my inspiration Aaliyah died...I hate death so much.
It's really sad to hear that another talented person is no longer with us. She might not have been perfect but she was a beautiful young woman who must have brought joy to those who knew her.
I've loved TLC from the beginning and I am heartbroken by the untimely death of one of its superstars. The world lost a beautiful soul and I can only shed tears at our loss.
What a great loss for the world - and what a great gain for the angels above. She was a talented, beautiful, quirky, singer...I'm still in shock at the news...I send my deepest sympathy to her family and friends. Rest in eternal peace.
Thrisa Correa, US
It's very say to know that we have lost another beauty. She sparkled wherever she went and her beautiful voice brought about happiness. We here in Jamaica are very saddened by the news and we hope that here family will keep the courage and be strong, because she is watching over them.
I will truly miss this talented young lady. Lisa, rest in peace and please send a prayer down here for the rest of us.
I just don't know what to say. I'll miss you. My prayers go out to all your TLC family members and the music world and family. It's a great-great loss. RIP.
Lisa, Pennsylvania, USA
I remember growing up and listening to their (TLC) music, Left Eye in particular. She was amazing. I'm older now but I hope the kids will be alright... we love you.
To Lisa Lopes' family, T-Boz, Chilli, and every one of her fans, prayers go out to all of you. I was and forever will be a fan of Left Eye and I hope and pray that the TLC family can press on, with God's strength, through this tragedy. It seems like God has taken a star every other year, but it's all in his plan how our lives will end. Rest in peace.
I'm deeply saddened by this tragic death. TLC came out when I was in the fifth grade and I've been out of school for three years now so it feels like I grew up listening to them. I was really looking forward to a new TLC album. She will be truly missed.
A truly talented woman, with her own unique and flamboyant style. Will be sadly missed
Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes was a great performing artist and contributed immensely to R&B and popular music. Her death will be a tragic loss and we will all miss her cute and cherub smile.
I was a fan of her individuality and maverick spirit. She did not conform and stayed true to herself, a rare quality which a lot of people misunderstand these days. May her soul find the peace she deserved. Much, much love!
Elizabeth, Atlanta, GA
I am completely saddened by this tragic event. I have been a TLC fan since '94 and was waiting for this new album to come out. She will be sadly missed! xxx
Wow. It was really shocking when I was sitting there doing my homework while watching the news and hearing that Lisa Lopes from TLC died in a car crash. My heart started to beat and my eyes watered. "Not another one," I said to myself. Lisa was a great rapper. I loved her childish voice - it made things sound good. You will be missed. Rest in peace
Yvonne , London, UK
Well this is something that I thought would ever happen to Left Eye, because she was so cool and down to earth (even when I was very young I used to tell people I was Left Eye!) This is really hard pill for me to swallow - first God took my sista, now my friend. But I send my respect and thoughts to Left Eye's family and friends. And to Left Eye, if you get this show God and the angels something and if you hear this I want you to live it up to the fullest in heaven. I will miss you.
She gave class and artistry to a musical genre so often maligned for having neither.
Lisa was my favourite member of TLC. The group's album Fanmail was the best that I have ever heard with every song on the album having a true and significant meaning. It is a very sad thing that this bright star has now gone. My thoughts and prayers are with her family and her sisters of TLC. Shine brightly in heaven Lisa, as you will be missed for a very long time to come.
Dylan Harding, UK
My heart goes out to "Left Eye" Ms. Lopes. Truly God has picked another flower from his vast garden. May the angels have her encamped in their grace. My prayers and thoughts are with her family and friends. For this is a great tragedy, for anyone to bear.
This is a really sad day. Left Eye was always my favourite of the trio. She had a hard core attitude and I respected her for it. She will be missed so much by everyone. We love you girl. RIP alwayz.
Kimberly Rosario, NY, US
She was the best member of TLC - very talented a real, real shame that she had to die. But you have to think that it is God's will. I know she was religious, so hopefully she will have rest in her Lord's arms. God rest your soul Lisa.
Always enjoyed their music, especially when Left Eye would rap. Saw her recently on Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? and she was super-fit, healthy and smart, really getting her life in order. God bless her and those who love her.
Shocked and truly saddened.
Never met the girl, but it's sad to lose someone that you feel is close to you because their music touched so many, especially me. I am so sorry her family and friends have to suffer this loss, but she'll be deeply missed from now till the end of time. We all love you, Lisa Lopes!!!!
She will be loved and remembered for many years to come, she was a talented young woman who followed her dreams. R.I.P. Lisa xx
Words cannot express how much she will be missed. I have been a fan of TLC, since their first album in 1992. Left Eye has always been my favourite because of her spiciness, her drive for life, and her willingness to do whatever she set her mind to. The world has not only lost a great singer and rapper, but a gorgeous, talented woman, whose life was cut short. God bless her, the members of TLC, and her family. Love always, her biggest fan.
Jo Conroy, England
Lisa was my favourite female rapper. It is so sad that she is gone. She will live in my heart for a long time and will be missed so much. Very few female rappers have brought delightful innovation to music.
Lisa, you will be missed by all lovers of music, you earned the respect you deserved through out your individuality of personality and performance. You made a statement in all for you work either by dance or song. Girl, you always be remembered. Prayers go to you and everyone you knew and who was very close to your heart.
"Dreams are hopeless aspirations in hopes
Miss Lopes was what gave TLC an edge. Many songs would have been really weak without her vocal contribution, and she'll be missed by many fans. Talented girl.
The news today is truly shocking and saddening. Like many, I grew up listening to Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes through TLC. Unique in style, highly creative, charismatic, and often willing to run against the grain to get across her message. Like Aaliyah, Big L, Biggie, Pac, Big Pun, Freaky Tah, Easy E, and the numerous others, you will be missed a great deal. Rest in peace sister.
Michael Mørch, Denmark
Words cannot describe the talent, impact and inspiration Lisa Lopes was on not only the R&B music scene but the music industry as a whole. As we look back on her life, we can remember her talents as a performer and the rare ability she had to work with a variety of styles - a memorable example is the collaborations she had with Melanie C. Her fan base has grown and grown and it's so tragic that we have lost such a lovely artist who was just about to embark on a solo career. She will remain in our hearts with love. xxx
We are deeply affected by this horrific tragedy. We have loved Lisa since we were kids and we'll miss her music in our lives. Long live TLC. Rest in peace Lisa.
I've literally grown up as a great fan of TLC; listening to their advice in various tracks, watching them play about etc. I love TLC and all that makes the group. It is sad that Lisa is no more. T-Boz and Chilli please take heart, we the fans are still out here for you. May God rest Lisa's soul in peace, Bless her family and friends. It's a great loss. Andre, take heart, she's gone to a better place.
Lisa was a fantastic performer, her music was outstanding and original. I was devastated to hear the world has lost another fantastic artist, my heart goes out to her family and friends. She will live on forever in her music.
Kelvin Plomber, UK
Another young talent lost. Like Aaliyah and 2Pac, your music is your gift to us and we thank you for that. My thoughts are with your family and friends.
RIP Lisa Lopes.
I am deeply saddened at the death of Left Eye. I have been a fan of TLC ever since they started out and have all three of their albums. I can't believe a talented, young woman has been taken away so suddenly. I hope she's at peace where she is now. She may be gone, but definitely not forgotten. Condolences go to her family and friends. R I P Left Eye and God bless xx.
Lisa was an extremely talented artist. She openly shared her gift with the world and I hope the world will openly mourn her death. She will be sorely missed. May she rest in peace and all our condolences go out to her family and friends during this very difficult time. RIP.
Erica C. Thomas, US
We are truly saddened to hear about the tragic news of Lisa's death. As loyal fans to the star, we would like to pay our tributes by saying thank you for providing us with such amazing music and talent. We love you Lisa. RIP.
She was truly crazysexycool! No words can really express how fans feel about this tragic loss! You may be gone but never forgotten. Thank you for being one of the reasons I could get through a tough day. God bless you, rest in piece, my sincere condolences to all those that were close to you.
Andre C Williams, UK
Such sad news!! Lisa Lopes along with TLC were very talented and one of my favourite groups. My thoughts go out to her friends, family along with T-Boz and Chilli, who are obviously like family to her. God bless and rest in peace Lisa, you will be remembered forever!
Lisa "Left Eye" was one of the best female artists of our time and I think that she will be missed in the music industry.
I remember the first time I saw TLC on television. I was blown away by their talent. Lisa Lopes impressed me again when she duetted with Mel C. I will miss her.
My condolences to the Lopes family. Lisa truly was a creative, outspoken, gifted and talented young woman who inspired many fans throughout the world. I have been a fan of TLC from way way back. I can't comprehend why she has been taken from this world, but perhaps she will find solace and happiness where she resides now. God bless you Lisa and thank you for bringing happiness through your music to many of your fans throughout the world.
With her beauty, talent, god-given sense of rhythm and that attitude, Lisa was the ultimate fly girl. We lost a dream today. RIP.
She was all beauty, fire and talent. It's a tragic loss.
What a loss, we've listened to TLC since we were kids. The CrazySexyCool album sums up so many years and brings back so many memories. Lisa brought the band to life and now it's the end. RIP.
A true talent, someone whose rap style I emulate from time to time. Such a devastating end for a beautiful woman. All God's angels come to us in disguise. Left Eye, safe from harm you will never be forgotten. God bless your family and friends. xx
A tragic sad loss but hopefully her legacy will inspire people to seek out their dreams and realise them against all odds. A true artist.
The death of Lisa Lopes is a great loss to the world of music, not only because of the loss of a wonderfully talented person but also for the effect it will have on one of the best and most dynamic R&B groups to have hit planet earth, which in Lisa Left Eye's own words, will never be the same again.
An extremely talented and beautiful lady that inspired and ignited many a young girl, like myself, and their imagination. Her lyrics and opinions were original and forthcoming. I hope that her memory will never be forgotten because her tragic death proves something - only the good die young. RIP. xxx
A truly great loss, she had the looks, the style, the lyrical flow. Her unique rhyme style made her stand out. RIP Left Eye.
This is a complete tragedy, and just reaffirms to us all that we are on borrowed time. May God bless your soul Lisa.
Kellie and Jess, England
Another very sad day for R&B and for the entertainment world in general. TLC's songs have sometimes been humorous but always thought provoking - from Ain't To Proud To Beg to Unpretty. It's so sad to know that we shall no longer have the benefit of her talent.
Lisa was a great person, who loved what she did. We are all sadden by what happened. May God be with you Lisa on your way too heaven. God Bless
We did not know her personally yet we have suffered a great loss. She was talented, beautiful, graceful and very creative. Her creativity was displayed in her originality. Lisa is one in a million just like Aaliyah and she will be missed greatly. We send condolences to her girls (Chilli and T- Boz) and her family who are most affected by this loss. God bless her soul, much love and may she rest in peace. XxX
It's so sad to hear that such a beautiful talented artist has passed away. She was a very good rapper and performer. Her death was so shocking and unexpected just like Aaliyah's. May they rest in peace.
Marilyn Comrie, UK
I am in pain. She was more than a singer to me. Her music defined my life as I was growing up. Her music along with Aaliyah's is what I started listening to as I grew up into a young lady, and a lot of what I've been through I found strength in who they are and what they stand for. Rest in peace girl, rest in peace. You won't be forgotten
Someone who put soul into rap. She will be missed.
The music industry has once again to mourn the loss of a shining star. I only hope that the obvious affection that everyone had for Lisa is some comfort to her friends and family.
Tony Magnier, Ireland
This is a very sad day for anyone that is into R&B or rap. Lisa's beautiful face always brought a smile to my face. She will always be remembered. Bless.
I've grown up with TLC and I feel really awful that Left Eye's gone. She was really cool and always my favourite. I really hope she was happy in her last few years. She's a colourful person and definitely leaves a gap in the media world.
In the grand scheme of things it is another tragic loss of a talented, beautiful star who conquered all she stood for. To name all the known and unknown musical talents we have lost would take for ever. Take time to reflect on the testing life and career of a master of her field. If I can be half the person she turned out to be my life will be complete. Thoughts and prayers to all who cared.
Wow. I'm extremely saddened to hear of Lisa's death: I've always been a big fan. Not only was she a vital part of one of R&B's most outstanding groups, but as an individual performer she was a true dynamo. Thanks for your work and I'm glad we got to meet - miss you.
Sometimes I feel overwhelmed by life,
Truly shocking! A great loss to the music industry. Waterfall must rank as one of the greatest R&B songs of all time. Thoughts with her family and friends.
I am very sad to hear of the tragic death of Lisa Left Eye Lopes. I have admired her talent throughout the years. It's such a shame that a young vibrant, talented, beautiful woman has been taken from us. I would like to send my deepest sympathies to Lisa's family, friends and fans. Rest in peace, you will be greatly missed. xx
Devastating. A gorgeous, talented woman who had a special place in many people's hearts. She will be sadly missed.
Kevin Allen-Khimani, England
It always seemed that Lisa lived her life to the full and made the most of every day. I'm glad she lived her dreams and grateful for the music that she made, which touched my life forever.
My thoughts go out to her family and friends. Such a terrible end to such a wonderful and talented person.
We will all miss you Left Eye. I'm a great fan and I'm very sad that this happened.
It's irrelevant that Left Eye was beautiful, talented and young - death so sudden is tragic. Especially when you feel in touch with someone the way they express themselves through their music and visually, you don't recognise the impact until you're presented with such tragedy. I am young, my friends are young - death at a time when you are relishing life and exploring yourself is hard to comprehend. I hope there is a reason why people are taken away from us. I guess one day we may all find out. Rest in peace Left Eye. Your tunes will live on!
Wow, this is unreal and unimaginable. There are no words.
What a waste of a good talent.
I was stunned to hear that Lisa has been killed. She was one of the most creative and talented performers in the entire industry. Her solo album was just the first rung on what would have been a stellar solo career and she has been taken from us before that career could be fully realised. Rest in peace Lisa. You will be missed.
I am a fan of TLC and I loved their performances. We will miss her greatly. The gap she left will never be filled. To her family, I send my heart felt condolences. Please take courage. May her soul rest in eternal peace.
Samantha Douglas, England
Words cannot express how upset I am. I will truly miss her, but her music will live on forever. RIP Lisa.
Tragic news. She may have burned down her husband's house and been an alcoholic but this did nothing to detract from her fantastic rapping ability - what a talent, what a loss!
A talented and very beautiful woman. You will never be forgotten. Rest in peace.
R&B and the music industry has once again lost a precious talent. As with Aaliyah, Lisa, my thoughts and prayers go to you and your family. RIP.
Aaliyah last year, Big Pun the year before, 2Pac, Notorious BIG and now Left Eye, the music world has lost some of its biggest most influential stars over the years. I'm devastated by Left Eye's death, as I was by Aaliyah's. I met Left Eye when I was on holiday in the US once and she was very welcoming to me. She will be a great loss to the music industry and my thoughts are with her family and friends and T-Boz and Chilli.
It appears that the more talented they are the sooner we lose them - Left Eye, Tupac, Aaliyah...
I couldn't believe it when I logged onto the BBC website to see that Lisa had died. Though not a great fan of her work, I always admired her for the way she always bounced back from her problems big or small. She will be greatly missed, my thoughts are with her family, friends and the rest of TLC.
As shocking as Aaliyah's death! What a big loss to the music industry! Left Eye might have made the headlines negatively sometimes but that does not change the fact that she was a talented, charismatic and beautiful woman. RIP.
Daniel Flowers, United Kingdom
Its a shame that such a talented artist has to die in such a manner. As a DJ it affects me more because I have to play her old songs just to keep her in the music industry. My heart goes out to her family.
Lisa had a good career and a better one ahead of her. this is a sad loss for a big star and she will be greatly missed
We've lost yet another shining star! God bless you Lisa may you rest in peace
She was such an all round talent. This beautiful feisty diva is another great loss, not only to the Afro-race but to the entertainment world in general. RIP.
This is horrible. I never knew Lisa Lopes personally but I loved her style, creativity, music and charisma. I send condolences to her family and friends and everyone else that loved her. This serves as yet another reminder to us all that life is short and we are never promised tomorrow.
Matthew Dixon, UK
I just heard the news of Lisa's death on the radio and had to go on the internet to make sure I heard it correctly. It turns out I did and I just can't believe it. My thoughts are with her family and friends
Thanks for the gifts, the joy and the pleasure you gave us through your talent... Lisa, you will be very sadly missed, a light has gone out in our world. We are all devastated.
Sharon B, UK
RIP Lisa. All our thoughts from Whitchurch High and Richard Gooch says I love you. All our thoughts are with you.
My jaw just dropped when I read about Lisa being killed this morning. This is just so so sad. What with us R&B fans just coming to terms with the death of Aaliyah this is just shocking news. My condolences go out to her family at this tragic time. Gone but never forgotten. RIP Lisa.
Words can't express the loss this is. The R&B world has lost one of its brightest talents.
First Aaliyah, now Lisa. Two R&B geniuses lost in the space of a few months. God rest your soul Lisa - your fans will never forget you.
It is very sad to lose someone so young but even worse when she was so talented - I pray for her family.
I would like to give my deepest sympathy for family and close friends of Lisa Lopes, I was very shocked to hear the news. May she rest in peace forever, God bless you.
Such a waste of a young international talent.

She was a very talented rapper and will be missed.
I'm very sorry to hear of the death of Lisa, she was the best member of TLC and a great performer.
