Former Destiny's Child singer LeToya Luckett spent the past six years trapped in pop's "Whatever happened to ...?" dungeon.

LeToya, who simply goes by her first name, was an original member of the chart-topping girl group, along with Beyonce, Kelly Rowland and LeTavia Roberson, and helped co-write hits like the Grammy-winning "Say My Name."

But she was unceremoniously booted from Destiny's Child along with Roberson after a conflict in 2000, just after the group had its breakthrough pop success with "The Writing's on the Wall."

While her former best friends went on to conquer the music world, racking up No. 1 hits, multiplatinum albums and Grammys, LeToya's career foundered after several false starts and disappointments.

Now LeToya is finally emerging from the shadows of Destiny's Child. She already scored a major hit with the ballad "Torn" and just released her self-titled debut album, which features fellow Houston natives Paul Wall and Mike Jones. The album hit No. 1 last week.
