LeToya sat with the MadameNoire #AfterShow crew to talk about her role as Felicia Price Single Ladies, going solo, her upcoming album, Until Then, and more!
LeToya goes ‘one on one’ with Entertainment Pop and talks about the return of Single Ladies and her character Felicia Price, new music, and working side-by-side with Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson on their upcoming HBO series, Ballers.
LeToya Luckett is on her way to becoming one of the hardest working women in entertainment. She just starred in her latest film, Drumline: A New Beat, and will soon appear in Lifetime’s Seasons of Love—all the while working on her upcoming album, Until Then. The Grammy Award-winning singer and actress spoke with ESSENCE.com about how her faith and her family have helped her get this far.
How would you describe your relationship with God?
I am definitely a woman of faith. My prayer life and my connection with God are on the highest level. I definitely would not be standing here doing what I do were it not for that. It is my only way of survival. My father was a minister so I was raised in the church. I guess I’m a lucky girl because I’ve always been taught, since I was a little girl, this is who you count on. This is who you lean on. It is my foundation.
Now that you’re older, how has that faith helped you in your day to day?
Things just started happening even without asking. I just let him lead with every single thing. I don’t get in the way. A lot of times we get in His way; we get in our own way, and it ends up taking us in the wrong direction. This would be a boring world if we all made the same decisions and all were doing the same thing. The beauty of this whole thing is God has carved out a different story, a different path for all of us. It’s up to us to connect to Him and follow it.
