LaTavia Marie Roberson is a 2x Grammy Award winning artist known as an original member of multiplatinum group Destiny’s Child.
An entertainment industry veteran since childhood, LaTavia landed her first national campaign as the face of “Just For Me” at the age of 8! That same year she became fast friends with a young Beyonce Knowles whom she’d met during auditions for an all girl ensemble forming in Houston, TX. After both girls made the cut, they were encouraged to invite friends to rehearsals for additional tryouts. Overhearing her classmate Kelendria “Kelly” Rowland singing a Whitney Houston tune one day, found a wide eyed LaTavia instantly encouraging her friend to audition.
Several months later Beyonce extended similar invitations to her classmate Letoya Luckett, and the rest became history. As the ensemble developed quite a bit of evolution followed: lineup, moniker and management changes eventually morphed the group into a foursome the world would come to know as Destiny’s Child.
The girl’s years of hard work and determination paid off in the form a major record deal with Sony/Columbia Records. Destiny’s Child’s first 2 albums earned LaTavia extensive singer/songwriter credits & garnered #1 hits like “Bills, Bills, Bills” & “Say My Name”.LaTavia Roberson
