Michelle Williams appeared on New York’s Power 105.1 ‘The Breakfast Club Show’  last week to promote her new album and she was met with so many questions concerning her new direction of music, it’s criticism, her past beef with artists/managers, her battle with depression, the constant comparisons to Beyonce and Kelly, why she remains humble, and so much more.

Post Destiny’s Child, Michelle’s went on to star in a a number of  Broadway musical plays, [‘Aida’, ‘Chicago’ ‘The Color Purple’, ‘Jesus Christ Superstar’ ‘Fela’ ‘What My Husband Does Not Know’ ] she’s also the host of an upcoming reality show ‘Fix My Choir’  and has issued four solo albums thus far.

Her new album ‘Journey To Freedom’ was released earlier this summer [June 2nd] and has become the number #1 song on the US Gospel Songs, Digital and Streaming charts and in the UK as well.

However, some Christians are now bashing the Grammy Award star over her popular hit single ‘Say Yes, [feat. Beyonce and Kelly] calling her music ‘secular’ and criticizing her for fusing other genre’s of music with gospel music and yet call it a Gospel album.

As Michelle points out: What does Gospel music sound like?….. I believe that the message of my music is the most important. “

Williams also announced that she is the owner of WNBA team Chicago Sky’.

‘I’m thrilled to have a stake in the WNBA as it expands into my hometown with the Chicago Sky -say Williams ‘

Michelle addressed all of the other swirling questions that many of us wanted to know including her opinion on the public criticism over blue ivy’s hair, and why she feels that everyone must know their lane and stay in it, and more. I enjoyed this interview and I’m sure you would too.
