I finally had the opportunity to interview the one and only Michelle Williams! She really is a sweet heart and lets the transparency of her humbleness shine through in this interview. Listen to the cool conversation we had about her recent signing with Light Records and a lot of other things that I’ve always wanted to ask her. Including how she felt about performing Gospel songs at Destiny’s Child concerts. Listen to the interview to hear everything she has to say.
Michelle is well known as one-third of record-breaking R&B and Pop sensation Destiny’s Child. However, she is also a multiple award-winning international singer, songwriter, record producer, actress and philanthropist. Guided by her faith and deeply rooted in church, Michelle will release a still untitled gospel album in January 2013 release.
In between recordings and concert tours, Michelle has conquered yet another challenging mountain as an actress. She has appeared on Broadway to rave reviews in 2003 in “Aida” and in 2007 joined the cast of hit “The Color Purple” for its national tour where she dazzled in the role of Shug Avery. In 2009, she joined the London West End production of “Chicago” making history as the show’s first African American to play the lead role of Roxie Hart. Michelle later reprised her role in February 2010 on Broadway.
In addition to recording music and acting, Michelle is active in several charities and recently worked with the American Heart Association. This year she partnered with the AHA on their Power to End Stroke & Most Powerful Voices Singing competition an education and awareness campaign that unites people to help make an impact on the high incidence of strokes within their communities. She also recently hosted and performed at the Million Meals concert for Lauren Bush Lauren’s charity FEED.
