Best known as an award-winning actress, singer writer, and director , Loretta is also a businesswoman who finds great joy in giving back to an industry that had given her so much, which is why her appointment to the Atlanta Walk of Fame is the perfect fit.

Her company, LMC Production was one of the most innovative entertainment training platforms available in the Atlanta Metropolitan area. Her years as the Multimedia/Film Director for Vision Entertainment Performing Arts Group (VEPAG) a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization provided opportunities and accessibility to multicultural artists and their communities.

Loretta is also the owner of Streaming Best, a multi-tier professional internet service company with a focus on building organizations through high-tech media platforms. With a realistic understanding of how the internet has transformed the way people communicate, her business focuses on helping the ‘little guy’ compete with the ‘big boys’.

You may recognize her as ‘Dusty Tyler’ when she replaced Janet Jackson on the innovative television series “Fame” or as the writer/director of “The Black Path Finder”.  She recently appeared on the “The One Show” in Europe, and on “Stars In The House”, which allowed her to once again nurture her entertainment side on film, but her first love is the theater where she starred in numerous national tours, plays, and musicals, such as “Dream Girls” where her powerful performance as ‘Effie’ earned her an outstanding performance award.  As a classically trained singer she was featured as the lead soloist with the Philharmonic Orchestra in Los Angeles, CA.

With so many avenues of opportunity at her feet, and as an alumnus of the internationally renowned California Institute of the Arts, Loretta is eager to bring her many years of dedication and service to the Atlanta Walk of Fame.
