Lopes, who was part of the hit '90s group TLC, was killed in a car crash in Honduras on April 25, 2002. She talked often about her death and told friends she expected to die young, Marose said.
"She knew she was going to pass away and it was her plan to get all of this out there so people could learn what she had done," he said. "She wanted people to hear it and wanted her family to do whatever they had to do."
Proceeds from the album will benefit Lopes' foundation, which aims to build orphanages and schools in Honduras, Marose said.
