Former Destiny’s child member, Michelle Williams, is on a ‘Journey to Freedom’ the title of her latest gospel album. Although released Sept. 9 on eOne Music, the popular diva share that it’s been eight years in the making. “Actually I knew when Destiny’s Child recorded our last album. I had been praying to God what do you want me to do? He dropped it in my spirit and I prayed again and said Lord what do you want me to do? I had been fighting and fighting until eventually you get tired of running. God knows your’re gonna’ fight and says let me know when your finished,” Williams said.
“The Cd is called ‘Journey to Freedom’- free from things that could possibly keep you and me from being our best. One of those things is being free from one’s opinion. You had a purpose before anyone had an opinion. Free from things like depression and low self-esteem. From procrastination, which may seem so simple but that keeps us from putting one foot in front of the other. I want us to be free from whatever is keeping us from moving forward and being God sent,” she said.
In addition to her project, Michelle has teamed up with Detrick Haddon for the reality television series ‘ Fix my Choir’. ” I grew up directing a choir and singing praise and worship. Choir music is still a passion of mine. I immediately jumped to the job of being a mentor to some of these choirs.”
‘Journey to Freedom’ is available online and wherever music is sold. Also, check your local listings for the docu-series ‘Fix My Choir’ on Oxygen Network.
