A child prodigy, she began playing early and owned her first set of drums at age seven when her grandfather gave her his. At that young age, she wrote her first songs when she sat at the piano to bang out the tunes that appeared in her head. Before she turned 17, she produced a private recording entitled "TLC and Friends," with Kenny Barron, Buster Williams, George Coleman and her dad, Sonny Carrington, She says she is still writing down ideas and harmonies that occur first in her head.. With the collaboration of Robert Irving, she produced her first record "Real Life Story" in 1988.
