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.

“It doesn’t get easier when you’re trying to work your way up that ladder. It actually sometimes can be more difficult because of people pressure, because of people’s opinions,”Luckett told The Christian Post. “Some people try to bring you down instead of lift you up because unfortunately that’s kind of the world we live in. A lot of people like to see the bad, because they feel the bad is more entertaining than the good.”

Still, Luckett makes sure she is not defining herself by the opinions of others.

“I serve a major God who definitely has the last say on my life. Being an actress and a singer, you get more ‘no’s’ than you get ‘yes’,” Luckett told CP. “You get more rejection than you do anything else.”

Heavenly Match

Heavenly Match, starring Samaire Armstrong, Brendan Penny and LeToya Luckett, premieres Sunday, October 12th at 7 PM ET on UP TV!

About Heavenly Match:

Life would be perfect for Reverend Casey Hart if it weren’t for parishioners who keel over during her sermons, steal money from the collection box and don’t believe a woman should be a minister.  Not to mention the very inconvenient feelings she is suddenly having for her long-time friend, fellow seminarian and verbal sparring partner, David Swenson.

It isn’t until she is thrust into the position of senior minister for her church, however, that she discovers the real cause of her discontent: her fear of failing has become stronger than her faith in herself.
