LeToya Luckett is going to star in three films within the next few months and is gearing up for at least one television show, but the Christian singer and actress insists that she still struggles with being a celebrity.
It's been close to 15 years since Luckett, 33, sang alongside her childhood friends Beyonce Knowles, Kelly Rowland and LaTavia Roberson in the hit R&B group Destiny's Child that propelled her fame. After leaving the group in 2000, Luckett hasn't slowed down with two solo albums under her belt and a consistent career as a working actress where she has secured roles in at least nine film projects since her 2010 debut in the film, "Preacher's Kid."
Despite a smooth transition from being a known singer to actress, the real life daughter of a minister insists she struggles with being famous. more >>
A new movie opening this Valentine's Day aims to combat the effects of works such as "Fifty Shades of Grey" on romance and expose people to a more "Old Fashioned" view of it.
Exchanging bondage for the Bible, the film, entitled "Old Fashioned," introduces two broken people who come out of their dark pasts and into real love through a traditional courtship. The film is a sharp contrast from "Fifty Shades of Grey" which is also due in theaters on Valentine's Day. The primary difference between the two films lies in the God-honoring courtship found in "Old Fashioned," which attempts to bring chivalry back to life.
Writer, director and star of "Old Fashioned" Rik Swartzwelder explained the significance of the film hitting theaters on the exact same weekend as "Fifty Shades." more >>
