Just days after launching a Kickstarter campaign to fund their fifth and final album, TLC has scored a huge donation from Katy Perry, who dished out $5,000 to help them meet their fundraising goal.
“Wow @katyperry…thanks so much for pledging!” Chili wrote on Twitter. She also thanked their fans for their ongoing support: “Ur pledges are greatly appreciated…this is so exciting! All this love n support blows me away,” she wrote.
TLC’s publicist confirms to ABC News Radio that Katy donated the large sum to the girl group, who’s offering up various incentives to hefty donors. Katy’s $5k donation entitles her to a slumber party in L.A., an autographed album, TLC digital scrapbook lyrics, dance party, and an exclusive remix.
The upcoming project is due out later this year. As of Wednesday afternoon, TLC needed about $44,000 more to hit their goal of raising $150,000. They’ve got 28 days to go.
