R & B singer Natina Reed of Blaque Passes Away!
There's tragic news out of the Atlanta metro area. LaReyna just posted this and I just got wind of it tonight.
The singing group Blaque who's rose to fame on the self-titled debut album with the hit singles "808" and "Bring It All To Me". They were mentored by the late Lisa "Left-Eye" Lopes of TLC fame.
The trios meaning is Believing, Life, Achieving, Quest, Unity, Everything, Blaque.
Now it's reported that one of their core members Natina Reed was killed by a vehicle while she was walking home in the Atlanta suburb Lawrenceville.
The singer was part of the trio that were assisted by the production duo The Trackmasters and of course the helm of Left-Eye.
The first album went gold. But when Left-Eye died in a tragic car accident in Honduras in April 2003, the group was left without a leader and friend.
Natina became an actress and starred in movies such as the cult classic Bring It On. The movie focused on teen cheerleaders in a competitive contest for a national title.
Natina also married briefly rapper Kurupt of Tha Dogg Pound. The rapper has her featured on his album and they raised a child together. They since separated.
Blaque had went on to produce three albums. The group disbanded for a brief moment. But they reunited to record a fourth album. But that was scrapped after news broke of her death.
She died two days before her birthday! She was born October 28, 1979 in Queens, New York. Died on October 27, 2012.
