Tionne "T-Boz" Watkins of TLC recently hosted a charity concert in an effort to raise money and awareness for sickle cell anemia through the Sickle Cell Foundation Support Group, Inc. Diagnosed with sickle cell anemia herself, T-Boz hosted a concert that brought TLC fans down memory lane at the Grammy Museum at L.A Live in downtown L.A last Sunday.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, T-Boz organized this event that featured performances by Vampire Diaries star Kat Graham, Raphael Saadiq and Faith Evans.

T-Boz believed this event turned out to be a "win-win".

"I had a dream—I literally saw [Saadiq] standing on the left side of me, and that's where he's standing today, so it's like my dream is really coming true," the singer told THR. "When you have charity events, people feel bad right then, and then go on to the next thing...[A charity] concert is something you'd do in your free time anyway, and it's for a good cause. You can't get any better than that. It's win-win."

TLC performed a lot of classics like "Unpretty," "Waterfalls," and "Creep". Evans, Graham and Saadiq performed and joined in for a final chorus for "Waterfalls," according to THR.

Graham, who sang TLC hit "What About Your Friends," expressed her enthusiasm to participate in the charity concert.

"'I've been wanting to do something with her for a really long time," Graham told THR. "She invited me to perform and I'm still not really believing I'm here."

According to the site for the Sickle Cell Foundation Support Group, the Support Group was established in 1997 and serves to promote education on sickle cell on a global level.

"Our vision is to be committed to total wellness through nutrition and supplementation for preventive health and management of Sickle Cell Disease and other hemoglobin disorders," it reads.
