It was a beautiful autumn Saturday in 1993 when Letoya Luckett arrived for her audition. When I asked her what she would like to sing for me, she replied, “Lift Every Voice,” the black national anthem. Great, I said. I took a seat and told her to begin whenever she was ready. She took a few seconds and then she began to sing. From the first tone she had me. Her voice was all head tone, but gorgeous. She wore glasses and had braces, but she possessed great beauty, exactly as Beyoncé had described her. I couldn’t take my eyes off her as she sang. She had the presence that I was looking for. With every move she made, you were forced to watch her. She had that something special that the French call “je ne sais quoi.”
