CHICAGO - One of the original four members of R&B group Destiny's Child, LeToya Luckett stopped by to talk about the success of the group, her solo singing career, acting career, and the event she is in town for benefitting Hurricane Harvey victims.
LeToya Luckett is a Grammy-award winning singer, songwriter and actress. As one of the original 4 members of Destiny's Child, she has sold over 25 million records with the group and won two Grammy Awards.
In May 2017, LeToya ended her eight year hiatus from music with the successful release of her third studio album, Back 2 Life, which debuted at #1 on the iTunes R&B/Soul Chart and features rapper Ludacris. To accompany the new album, LeToya released three mini movie music videos as part of her album promo.
