Biography

There are four artist by the name of Chilli:

1. Solo artist, member of the band TLC.

2. An alternative rock band formed in late 1999.

3. Solo artist from Latvia.

4. An American dance group assembled in Germany.

1. Chilli, born Rozonda Ocelean Thomas, was born on February 27th, 1971 in Atlanta, Georgia. Her father, Abdul Ali, was of Arab/Indian descent and her mother, Ava Thomas, was African American. She was teased as a child for her exotic appearance. Later she would become one of People’s 50 Most Beautiful People. Her father abandoned her and her mother so she never got a chance to meet her him until 1996 on the Sally Raphael show. She also discovered she had a brother and a sister who now reside with her.

Chilli did not realize that she wanted to sing until she saw Janet Jackson’s “Control” video and sung along at her job as a teen. In the late ’80s, the late Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes and Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins met with Pebbles (read: the wife of La Reid) and formed the group 2nd Nature. After a while the group’s name was changed to TLC, representing members Tionne, Lisa, and Crystal. Crystal was later replaced when L.A. Reid discovered Damian Dame’s dancer Rozonda Thomas. To fit the C, Rozonda was given the name Chilli, because she brought the sauce and the flavor to the group.

TLC went on to release their playful debut album ‘Ooooooohhh… On the TLC Tip’ which went 3x platinum. Following the huge success of their debut album the group released the more sultry and sensual album ‘CrazySexyCool’.
