T-Boz added that black women had felt the pain of being torn down and have decided to be deliberate about building others. The singer also apologized to those she didn't tag to her post, saying she only tagged those she felt would do the challenge.
Continuing with her black woman caption, the singer noted that all too often, black women found it easier to criticize each other, instead of building themselves up, before adding:
"... let's do something positive!! Upload one picture of a BLACK WOMAN. Then tag as many sisters to do the same. Let's build each other instead of tearing each other down."
A third fan wrote, "You so beautiful. Black power." Another impressed fan described T-Boz as "Perfection," while a fifth person said that the singer was very beautiful, a strong woman, and truly phenomenal.

T-Boz was born Tionne Tenese Watkins on April 26, 1970, to parents of African and Native American descent. She was the founder and lead singer of the girl group, "TLC."

The singer is also mother to a son, Chance, who she successfully adopted in 2016. The adoption journey proved challenging, but the proud mother eventually had her way and described her son as a blessing.
T-Boz, however, filed for divorce from the rapper in 2004 and requested a restraining order from him. The singer has been through a lot of difficulties and was diagnosed with a life-threatening brain tumor in 2006.

T-Boz turned 50 in April, and like her age, she is truly golden. The beautiful singer, a four-time Grammy Award winner, is one of the spokespeople of the "Sickle Cell Disease Association of America, and national co-chair of "Health Care Voter.
