Le Toya Luckett recently revealed during her YouTube series Leave it to LeToya how a mishap at school changed her life forever.
In the video shared on July 26, the 41-year-old opened up about how she met her former Destiny’s Child bandmate beyonce walking through her hometown of Houston, Texas.
During filming outside of St. James Elementary at 7:03 a.m., LeToya revealed that her first encounter with Beyoncé happened because the “Me, Myself and I” singer accidentally sat in her seat.
She said: “Okay guys, we started it all. This is my primary school St. James School. This is where I met Beyoncé… On B’s first day of school, she happened to be sitting in my assigned seat. I pointed this out to the teacher: “She seems out of place; she’s in my seat.” And the teacher, Mrs. Western, told me to get a seat, you know, I was late so I missed my seat.”
LeToya shared that after informing the teacher that Beyoncé had taken her place, the couple immediately liked each other due to their interest in music. “Everyone, B and I chat after class and you know we’ve become very familiar over time. She saw that I had a thing for singing and she did Star Search, big things. I was in a group with my cousins at the time. So we both do our thing.”
LeToya later added that Beyoncé asked her to audition for her father, Matthew Knowles, which she did days after the star proposed. After the audition, LeToya joined Beyoncé, Kelly Rowland and LaTavia Roberson in Something Fresh, formerly known as Girls Tyme.
The group’s name last changed to Destiny’s Child in the late 1990s after they signed a record deal with Columbia Records. After the success of Destiny’s Child, LeToya and LaTavia eventually left the group in 1999.
LeToya closed this video segment by encouraging her fans to stay in school because “good things are happening.”
When fans saw the clip, many mentioned that LeToya and Beyoncé’s mishap with the sitting was destiny.
“Lol @letoyaluckett part of destiny fr.”
“That was destiny!”
“Thank God you came late because you and B Met! That was destiny!”
“It was a blessing in disguise.”
“Beyonce was on time, it was destiny. Both of you are amazing.”
