While working at Blockbuster, aspiring R&B singer Tyra B got a tremendous confidence boost when some local fans shopping for DVD’s had seen her perform locally a couple of times. "They came up to me and were like, ‘What are you doing here?’" the Virginia native recalls with a laugh. "I looked down at my uniform and was like, ‘What do you mean? I’m working.’ The man was like, ‘You’re not going to be here long. You’re too talented. You’re going to make it big one day.’"
