LeToya Luckett

I had things about myself that I [didn’t] like.

Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) April 29, 2014

LeToya Luckett has been a star for quite a while now. After rising to fame as an original member of the famed girl group Destiny’s Child in the late 1990s, then stepping out on her own as a solo singer in the mid-2000s, the beauty from Houston has spent almost half of her life in the international spotlight. As she embarks on even more new professional beginnings — she’s set to release her new film, "From the Rough" and is working hard on her upcoming third solo album, "Until Then …", the 33-year-old star who spent much of her adolescence sharing a stage with the likes of Beyoncé and Kelly Rowland admits that it took a while for her to feel comfortable in her own skin. She had to learn to truly love herself.

“I had things about myself that I [didn’t] like,” says Luckett. The glare of the spotlight only amplifies insecurities. “People like to pick at your imperfections and that can be very hard on you as a person. I think a lot of times people forget that we’re human beings and some of us are fighting self-esteem issues already.”

Growth and progress are two things that seem to drive LeToya Luckett. She has quietly developed a strong acting résumé, generating buzz with her appearances on “Single Ladies,” (which was recently canceled by VH1 and picked up by Centric); HBO’s “Treme,” and a host of other TV shows and films.
