In a new sit-down interview with BET’s Lift Every Voice, the vocal powerhouse opens up about her worries returning to Gospel and why it was so important that she did.

An intriguing watch awaits below…

    Michelle belongs to Gospel definately. Her voice didnt sound right singing secular songs. You can always tell when someone has that umph to their voice that they should be using to sing for the Lord.

    P.S. is the interviewer the Butler? aka that guy that always used to appear in Diddy and Outkast videos in the early 2000s amongst many other videos? I always wondered where he went. Anybody know who Im talking ’bout?

    Although Michelle appears to be very genuine I still believe she is somewhat misguided. I’d like to know which part of being in DC she considered ministry. For close to 7 years she promoted worldliness in that group whose lyrics pertained to pride, grudges, sexual promiscuity and the like. Until she can actually admit that there were elements of DC that WERE conflicting with true Christianity I won’t be taking her seriously. To think that she was on Kelly “Ice” video shoot and said to the cameras “I’m gonna have to put my hands over my eyes as I don’t think I’m ready to see my sister so grown etc” just shows that she isn’t really able to stand for much. When as Christians will we be able to call a spade a spade and confront that which DOES NOT belong to God? I’m not saying that we can all be perfect this side of Heaven, but if the teachers are sitting next to the students rather than teaching at the front we’ve lost our place as influencers and have just become “blenders”. Nobody can confront by nodding in agreement.

    I am so sick of christian folks like you putting ppl in a box! Let that woman live her life!!!! Just bcuz she came up in a group that was not seen as Christian like tht does mean tht she doesn’t love G** or serve him like she should. As long as she is humble, believe that there is a G** treat ppl well and is saved that should only matters! Wearing short shorts does not make you a bad person or singing about your sexuality does not as well. At the end of the day she is a woman and deserves not to be put in a box bcuz she is a gospel artist. It makes no sense!!!

    Christians are so friggin hypocritical. God said come as you are… Where means… not as someone else…. Know the word before you go around judging someone. This women community service outshine you and your entire family and ancestors. Give me a break.

    Since there’s two of you let me just explain something. The Bible says in Hebrews 12:14 that without holiness no one shall see God. The Bible also says in Matthew 7:16 that we shall know real believers by the fruit they bear.

    In DC Michelle sang songs like “Soldier”, “s*** Daddy”, “Why You Actin'”, “Lose My Breath” etc. These songs not only promoted promiscuity but also conveyed messages (among others) of pride. When it comes to singing about intimacy and love there’s no problem (read Song of Solomon) but when it has a lustful edge to it it becomes ungodly. I’m concerned that these apparently Christian celebs do nothing about the messages they either have or are currently displaying and talk about faith as if they are building the household of God through their actions.

    I don’t come on here to insult people or talk trash about them or their fans. But as someone who does follow Jesus I’d appreciate if those who say they do abide by His teaching and not “cut and paste” him on to their actions as if He approves of all. As I said, I do believe Michelle is genuine but misguided, some celebs have a bunch of “Yes” people around them and not those who really confront with the truth.

    To Dane, yes the Bible does say come as you are…but it doesn’t say “Come and stay as you are”. If we love God we’ll obey His commandments.

    All I’d like to hear is her acknowledge that many aspects of DC WERE contradictory to Christ. Once I see that I’ll believe she has some real depth and backbone and I’ll take her message more seriously. How can the thief talk about honesty without acknowledging his crime-laden past?

    When did dc promote s** and promiscousness?

    DCsn songs werent even about s** (the only artists beside j.lo). They talked about female mpowerment dancing love and yes even god (which probably what she means wiht ministry).
    They dress s*** yes and have s** appeal but their songs and dances werent really raunchy.

    Thank you, Jeff. Let’s also refer to her glamorous line in “s*** Daddy” from the Survivor album. “It’s the weekend and it’s time for freakin’ let’s dance. I’m gettin’ buck wild tonight, it’s your luck tonight let’s dance.”

    Let’s also refer to the little known B-side “Why You Actin'” which is the DC girls bragging to a woman they’re sleeping with her man!

    ‘Chelle…you need to speak up!

    EITHER WAY I WILL ALWAYS FOREVER SUPPORT HER EVEN IF SHE DID A CHILDREN’S ALBUM I WILL ALWAYS SUPPORT..

    I PRAY THAT THIS ALBUM IS MORE “DO YOU KNOW” THAN “HEART TO YOURS”

    ALSO I HOPE THAT THIS ALBUMS FOLLOW UP IS NOT ON THE SAME 4 YEAR PATTERN AS THE OTHERS…. I’VE SAID THIS SINCE SURVIVOR I FEEL THAT WITH HER VOICE AND HER STYLE AND HER LIVE PERFORMANCES HER HOME IS DEFINITELY SOUL/R&B (I.E. MAXWELL, ERYKAH BADU, ANGIE STONE, ESTELLE) SHE DOESN’T HAVE TO TALK ABOUT s** OR DO ANYTHING CRAZY JUST GIVE US THAT SOUL… IF SHE GOES THAT ROUTE AND HAS A GOOD LEAD SINGLE AND A TIMELY ALBUM RELEASE SHE WILL SEE HER BIGGEST SALES NUMBERS, AND ALSO GET AWAY FROM “MICHELLE WILLIAMS OF DESTINY’S CHILD” JUST SAYING….

    What did she do for Gospel? Something as great as Mary Mary, Yolanda Adams or Cece Winans?

    I agree with an above commenter that said her niche is Neo-Soul (Maxwell, Badu) and not contemporary pop RnB … it just meshes better with her voice imo.

    Michelle has always carried herself as a lady. Some people need to fall back, take a seat and see how they’re serving God in their 9-5s.

    I’m so excited for this album. She’s been working with Harmony Samuels who recently did Keyshia Cole’s “Enough of No Love”.

    Tenitra gonna snatch!
