The surviving members of TLC are close to reaching their target to fund the recording of their next album after an online campaign drew donations of more than $100,000 (£62,500) in just three days.

Tionne 'T-Boz' Watkins and Rozonda 'Chilli' Thomas launched a new drive at the beginning of the week (19Jan15) to help cover the costs of recording and releasing their fifth and final studio album.

After starting the page on Monday (19Jan15), the girl group has received more than $100,000 (£62,500) in donations, pushing them more than 70 per cent of the way towards achieving their $150,000 (£93,750) goal.

Tlc's summer (15) tourmates New Kids On The Block pledged $10,000 (£6,250) to the cause, and reports suggest pop star Katy Perry handed over $5,000 (£3,125).

Fans have until 19 February (15) to contribute. The campaign had raised $105,426 (£65,891) as Wenn went to press.
