LeToya Luckett



LeToya Nicole Luckett (born 11 March 1981), known professionally as LeToya, is an American singer-songwriter and actress. She was a member of the R&B group Destiny’s Child, with which she won two Grammy Awards and released many successful commercial recordings. Luckett has sold over 25 million records with Destiny’s Child as feature vocalist on the group’s first two albums and singles.

She began her solo career after signing a record deal with Capitol Records. Her solo debut album, LeToya ( 2006), topped the U.S. Billboard 200 albums chart in July 2006, and was certified platinum by the RIAA in December 2006. The single, “Torn”, achieved records on BET’s top ten countdown show 106 & Park. She was also named “One of the Best New Artists of 2006” by AOL and the “Top Songwriter of 2006” by ASCAP. Luckett released a second solo album, Lady Love on 25 August 2009, which debuted at No. 1 on the U.S. Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart and also as No. 12 on the U.S. Billboard 200 chart.

Luckett has since become an actress. She was the star of the movie Preacher’s Kid. She’s part of the cast of the feature films Killers and From the Rough and had a recurring role on the second season of the HBO TV series Treme, and on the third season of the VH1 TV series Single Ladies.

During the post first solo album era, Luckett also became involved in philanthropic activity. LeToya has been participating in various events like the “Women in Entertainment Empowerment Summit”. She was part of the national tour of the “Hip-Hop Summit Action Network ‘Get Your Money Right’ a Financial Empowerment Summit.”. LeToya visits schools to motivate and encourage kids to study and to further their education after graduation. She also speaks on the subject of violence and domestic abuse.

Luckett is the owner of Lady Elle Boutique. LeToya originally opened this successful clothing boutique in 2003 in the Uptown Park shopping center in her hometown of Houston, Texas as “Lady L Boutique” but renamed it to “Lady Elle Boutique”. The store is an upscale women’s boutique. She has opened a second location in The Galleria in Houston, Texas.
