A “Lil Positivity”: LeToya Luckett Day?

- By Bossip Staff

We don’t know why, but LeToya Luckett was honored in Houston yesterday and given her own “Day,”:

While she has not been a member of Grammy Award-winning group Destiny’s Child for more than five years, singer LeToya Luckett has enjoyed plenty of business and musical success on her own. The Houston native will now be…

… honored by her hometown with a day that recognizes her achievements.

City of Houston councilman Ronald Green will present Luckett with a proclamation in front of Houston City Hall at 2 p.m. Tuesday that declares Aug. 25, 2009, as LeToya Luckett Day. After severing ties with Destiny’s Child in 2000, Luckett has since released a self-titled solo album in 2006 and opened two fashion stores in Houston named Lady L Boutique. One of the stores is located near the Houston Galleria while another one is located near the Uptown Park shopping center. The proclamation coincides with the release of Luckett’s second solo album, “Lady Love.” Luckett is also celebrating the October release of the motion picture “Preacher’s Kid,” in which she stars, and “Five Killers,” in which she will appear with Ashton Kutcher and Katherine Heigl.

We can’t knock the hustle.

    It’s not a hustle she gives back to her city and reps it proudly. I am a big supporter of her work and music. She doesn’t need Beyonce at all. It’s nice to see someone from my city doing well and being recognized for it. Not acting a fool on reality TV.

    why in the world does she of all FIRE FIGHTERS POLICE WORKERS DOCTORS TEACHERS AND THOSE THAT LIVE THERE LIVES DAILY OUT OF THE PUBLIC EYE HELPING PPL…FROM FOSTER CAREGIVERS..TO THOSE THAT RUN CHARITIES AND FOUNDATIONS FOR THE SICK HOMELESS AND POOR AND MOST CERTAINLY LESS FORTUNATE AND FOR THOSE THAT LIVE THERE LIVES TRYING TO HELP MAKE A DIFFERENCE…. DOES MS LATOYA A R&B SINGER DESERVES TO BE HONORED??? FOR WHAT IS SHE A GOD? DID SHE CHANGE A WHOLE NATION/?? I DONT FKN THINK SO……..I dont see THE REAL ONES THAT GIVE BACK AND HELP THERE FELLOW MAN getting rewarded there own day???

    Bunch of asskissers if you ask me…nobody deserves there own damn day…BUT GOD HIMSELF…WOW what a superficial obsessed with the glitz & glamour type of world we live in.

    Hell Michael Jackson didnt even get his own damn day…and probably never cared for such recoginition because the people basically gave him enough honor daily…the only ONE THAT DESERVES TO BE HONORED IS GOD…NOT ONE LIVING SOUL ON THIS EARTH…because everybody is sinners. such fools. smh.
