As the daughter of a seamstress, Tina designed many of the most fashionable looks of the sons of fate during the reign of the group. "High end brands don't want to dress four black curve girls, and we can't afford designer dresses and fashions. My mother was turned down in every showroom in New York.

Williams describes her struggle with depression at the peak of her son's fame. In the early days of the group, Williams endured in silence, not fully aware of what had happened. She eventually began to feel guilty about her depression, because a successful person was often ridiculed as unsuccessful. She said she even started suicideAnd strive to be an advocate of artists who strive in silence. Alectra records has given up the children of destiny.

Brill / ulstanbild, before reaching an agreement with Columbia Records in 1996, through photos taken by Getty pictures, the fate of the child had briefly signed a contract with Elektra records.

As a result, he hit the girls hard and made them superstars, which may or may not pay off. It is reported that he let Beyonce run a mile while singing. It is said that she still does this kind of sports today! Although his training may be beneficial to some people, they also pay a price.
