        Beyonce is a entertainer who can carry a tune, but she no Whitney or Mariah; her talent is in her over the top show. However, with a mic and no background props, we would not know Beyonce. So let Michele have her shine.

    Lord lol. This is info she could have kept. What a tragedy that would have been.

      Not necessarily…just remember she may not be the artist she is now and actually be a performer instead of an actual artist

    Kehlani was in a band called PopLyfe that competed on AGT. She was also slated to join Nick Canon’s gg School Gyrls but it didn’t work out.

  8. K’’man June 19, 2020

    Alicia would’ve been the butch lesbian one in the group.

  9. Hated for my opinion June 19, 2020

    Letoya and Latavia sung lead vocals on many tracks from the Survivor album. The producer and engineer had to make changes to the sound to highlight Beyonce and Kelly’s voices as the other two had been dropped from the group. There is an alternate version of the album that leaked that has original vocals.

    • Paulo June 19, 2020

      Girl I been a LeToya stan for over a decade ane never ever heard of this. You just made this up lol

      • E+Jai June 19, 2020

      • Jay+Jay June 19, 2020

      • Paulo June 19, 2020

  10. Only Facts June 19, 2020

    Alicia has her guardian angel protecting her because chiiiiile 🤣

  11. Section8DaGreat June 19, 2020

    Why y’all in these comments just making up lies. Keke Wyatt was never in Destiny’s Child and Letoya and Latavia was not on the Survivor album at all. You trolls are too much.

  12. Ceasar June 19, 2020

    She way older than 3lw how was that gonna happen

    • Bey unique June 19, 2020

      I think they’re the around the same age. She’s only two years older than Adrienne. She seems older because she was more mature musically.

  13. Hmmm kay June 22, 2020

    😂 she said “I think they came out, they name was little women” .. Chile you know who 3LW was ..
