[ICYMI] – Say my name on the Kaya Central #Awesome4some
One of the most popular 90’s R&B groups – Destiny’s Child rose to fame with blockbuster commercial success taking over the the rivaling TLC. The original members Beyoncé Knowles, Kelly Rowland, LeToya Lucckett and LaTavia Roberson were just 9 years old when they met at an audition. Beyoncé’s dad Matthew Knowles then went on to set up the act based on their singing and dancing & managing the band in 1990. Shortly thereafter the group landed an appearance on Star Search & the rest as they say is history. Well a sordid history that marred the evolution of the group with member disputes & Beyoncé’s dad being accused of pocketing a disproportionate share of the band’s profits. Nonetheless, by the 3rd album, Beyoncé emerged as the group’s focal point, assuming more control & even writing the material and co-producing the content. The band parted ways in 2005 in the wake of member Beyoncé Knowles’ multi-platinum 2003 solo LP, Dangerously in Love.
On the #Awesome4some this afternoon we feature the artists who formed the group:
Letoya Luckett (was part of the Original Destinys Child 1993 – 2000)
