Actress, entertainer, music artist, film and TV producer, fashion designer, entrepreneur and humanitarian, Jennifer Lopez is one of the most successful and celebrated celebrities in entertainment. Since Lopez burst onto the music scene in 1999 with her first album “On the 6,”she has been a major force, selling over 75 million albums worldwide. With an unmatched global appeal, Lopez has racked up more than $1.4 billion in worldwide box office receipts (Box Office Mojo). She is an award-winning TV personality through participation on “American Idol,” the #1 Most Watched U.S. television series of 2010 – 2012. The Jennifer Lopez brand has achieved historic and record-breaking proportions and her fragrances have become the most successful celebrity line in the world.
Katy Perry cemented her status as a best-selling superstar with the global success of her second studio album, Teenage Dream, which debuted at #1 in 8 countries and spent over two years on Billboard’s Top 200 album sales chart. She became the only female artist to have 5 #1 singles from one album on the Billboard Hot 100 chart (“California Gurls,” “Teenage Dream,” “Firework,” “E.T.” and “Last Friday Night”). The special edition, Teenage Dream: The Complete Confection, added “Part of Me” and “Wide Awake” to Katy’s list of nine Top 40 chart-toppers (dating back to her multi-platinum debut album, 2008’s One of the Boys, which generated four hit singles: “I Kissed A Girl,” “Hot N Cold,” “Thinking of You” and “Waking Up In Vegas”). “Roar,” the first single from PRISM, became Katy’s 10th #1 Top 40 track after debuting at #1 on iTunes in 68 countries with 557,024 downloads in its first week of release in the US alone, the biggest digital song sales week of 2013. Katy’s 3rd album PRISM, released Oct. 22, debuted at #1 on Billboard with the biggest sales week of her career.
TLC is the best-selling girl group of all time having sold 65 million records worldwide. They are the only female hip hop group to earn a diamond certified album for their seminal Crazy Sexy Cool LP. They captured the world’s attention with their sassy attitude, sophisticated R&B feel and socially conscious lyrical style.

The trio is largely considered to be one of the most musically innovative and important female groups in music history.
