Huffington Post - over 1 year
It’s hard to remember a time without our savior Beyoncé Knowles and her disciples Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams, combining their powers to create Destiny’s Child. But we once existed without them ― a land before time known as “the early to mid-‘90s.”  We won’t dwell on what life was like sans this pop/R&B music group. Instead, we’ll choose to remember the day they came into our lives: Nov. 11, 1997. On this historic day, Destiny’s Child’s first single, “No No No,” hit the airwaves. (Williams was not part of the original group; in her place were members LaTavia Roberson and LeToya Luckett.)  The group took to social media Friday to remember their big day and it’s got us all like “Yes Yes Yes:”  “No, No, No,” the first single by Destiny’s Child ft. @wyclef, was released on this day in 1997! https://t.co/9qZhARov3R — Destiny's Child (@destinyschild) November 11, 2016 “No, No, No,” the first single by Destiny’s Child, wa...

On the "A" w/Souleo: LisaGay Hamilton and Yolonda Ross Find Meaning in Film <i>Go For Sisters</i>
Huffington Post - over 4 years
When actresses LisaGay Hamilton and Yolonda Ross finished reading the script for two-time Oscar nominee John Sayles' new film, Go For Sisters, they immediately knew they wanted to be cast in it since they appreciated the script's sensitivity in dealing with issues of sisterhood and race. LisaGay Hamilton in "Go For Sisters" Credit: John Castillo "I like the fact that he didn't pit these two female characters against each other which sometimes comes up in many scripts -- women scratching at each other and all that stuff," Ross says. In the film Ross' character, Fontayne, has just been released from jail for drug violations and is reunited with her old friend and newly appointed parole officer, Bernice (Hamilton). When Bernice's son goes missing on the Mexican border she enlists the street savvy skills of Fontayne to help find her son. Against the backdrop of an ensuing cat-and-mouse game the film explores the universal human condition which made the script even more appealing ...

MTV News - over 4 years
By Sowmya Krishnamurthy First New York, then Atlanta and now, it looks like "Love &amp; Hip Hop" is heading down south to Houston, Texas. The YBF shares that the reality show will get an H-Town spin-off and rappers Slim Thug and Willie D of the Geto Boys are set to star on the show. The site adds that Slim Thug's ex girlfriend, LeToya Luckett of Destiny's Child fame, will also be on board.
