For all the parallells to The Surpremes, the story of Destiny’s Child seems to boast a “happy ending”.
Case, point, these snaps of former members LeToya Luckett, LaTavia Roberson, and Michelle Williams from last night.
As many will remember, Luckett and Roberson served as original members of the iconic group until a management spat saw them forcibly removed in 2000. Williams and short-term member Farrah Franklin would go on to become their replacements – controversially making their debut in the ‘Say My Name’ video.
However, accompanied by Cosby Show actress Keisha Knight-Pullium, the trio were all smiles as they caught up – and in LaTavia and Michelle’s case, met for the first time.
Their destiny’s may not have crossed paths while in Destiny’s Child, yet former members LeToya Luckett and Michelle Williams have ensured it has in their time post the Grammy winning band.
Indeed, the last three years have seen the ladies spotted out and about on numerous occasions, and it now appears the masses are set to see diva’s dynamic on camera in the latest of Luckett’s ‘Love, Life & Music’ webisodes. Check out a sneak peek of episode 4 below…
As the biggest-selling female group of all-time, Destiny’s Child have earned themselves a collective place in music history. Perhaps most impressive, though, is that it’s status Beyonce, Kelly Rowland, and Michelle Williams achieved by the time they were 25.
Yet it’s their arguably abrupt end at that such a humble age (back in 2005) which has many pining for their comeback – some seven years later. Granted, at the time, Beyonce had become…well…”Beyonce”, and Kelly and Michelle were blossoming in their own right, their final outing ‘Destiny Fulfilled’ ironically felt like their first “group” album. Indeed, while the ‘Single Ladies’ singer was still covertly “lead”, verses were more equally shared, with the growth in her comrades given ample spotlight. And then…
BAM! It’s over
Fast forward to today and the still-young ladies are each doing their thing. Beyonce is… Beyonce, Michelle is prepping a new album and making it rain with her acting gigs, while Kelly’s stock is the highest it’s ever been (thank you ‘Motivation’). Begging the question…
