Beaumont-Raised Heartthrob Luke Whitney May Be About to Blow Up!

Beaumont-reared pop-soul artist Luke Whitney (who prefers to go by his stage name, Lhitney) already had 30 million streams on Spotify before he released Sunsets, his debut EP, in March. Whitney, 28, earned those plays through a handful of covers and singles he has released over the past couple of years, and they’re undoubtedly going to shoot up even higher once fans get a taste of his powerful new project.


For the EP, Whitney partnered up with two-time Grammy-winning audio engineer Ruben Rivera of L.A.’s Extreme Music, and famed H-Town producer Lab Ox, who’s worked with the likes of Rihanna, Drake, Nicki Minaj and 50 Cent. “I ain’t no local joker,” says Whitney, who taught himself how to play piano during quarantine. “I want my music to reach the masses.”

“DO YOU KNOW how a river forms?” is the question that begins Houston author Vaishnavi Patel’s new book, Goddess of the River. The voice belongs to Ganga, goddess of India’s Ganges river, who has been transformed against her will by Lord Shiva from “a tributary of the cosmic ocean” into the physical form of a mere winding river, with no path to the heavens, only the sea. Later, Ganga runs afoul of a powerful sage who transforms her yet again into a human, and as it happens in myths, things get complicated.
