As the biggest-selling female group of all-time, Destiny’s Child have earned themselves a collective place in music history. Perhaps most impressive, though, is that it’s status Beyonce, Kelly Rowland, and Michelle Williams achieved by the time they were 25.
Yet it’s their arguably abrupt end at that such a humble age (back in 2005) which has many pining for their comeback – some seven years later. Granted, at the time, Beyonce had become…well…”Beyonce”, and Kelly and Michelle were blossoming in their own right, their final outing ‘Destiny Fulfilled’ ironically felt like their first “group” album. Indeed, while the ‘Single Ladies’ singer was still covertly “lead”, verses were more equally shared, with the growth in her comrades given ample spotlight. And then…
BAM! It’s over
Fast forward to today and the still-young ladies are each doing their thing. Beyonce is… Beyonce, Michelle is prepping a new album and making it rain with her acting gigs, while Kelly’s stock is the highest it’s ever been (thank you ‘Motivation’). Begging the question…

Gospel/R&B star Michelle Williams was just one of many on hand at the Los Angeles Orpheum Theatre this weekend to behold the annual praise-fest that is BET Celebration of Gospel. Also seeing names like Kirk Franklin, Yolanda Adams, Marvin Sapp, Faith Evans, Kelly Price, and Ledisi on the guest list, the Steve Harvey hosted affair is due for airing on BET on April 1st at 8pm.
While fans ready themselves for the hand clapping praise session, this year’s festivities will include tributes to Mahalia Jackson (featuring Glee‘s Amber Riley) and Whitney Houston for their outstanding contributions to the genre.
Until April 1, see some shots from the show’s red carpet below (via Essence):
As reported here, ‘We Break The Dawn’ belle Michelle Williams has recently toyed with the idea of breaking from her dance offerings to release new gospel music. On the heels of her 2008 criminally underrated dance album ‘Unexpected’, Williams has been crafting the sound for her 4th LP – introduced by the buzz of the upbeat ‘On the Run’.
Taking to our friends over at HipHollywood to discuss the sound of her next offerings, the ‘Hello Heartbreak’ hitmaker hinted she may be taking a trip back to her (musical) home turf. After much acclaim for her first two solo projects, 2002’s ‘Heart To Yours’ and 2004’s ‘Do You Know’, Williams says she knows the near future may see her marry the genres of her past works.
See what else Miss Michelle shared after the jump:
‘We Break the Dawn’ diva Michelle Williams certainly moves at this year’s Mercedes Benz fashion week! Sitting front row aside ‘Foolish’ singer Ashanti at the ‘Falguni & Shane Peacock Fall’ show, Williams donned an electric blue number while Ashanti took a more daring approach to her threads.
The latter is already making rounds in promotion of ‘The Woman You Love’ – the lead single from her 5th LP. Likewise, the Destiny’s Child alum is hard at work at her 4th LP, the followup to 2008’s critically acclaimed ‘Unexpected’. As such, fans can expect to see much of the songstresses in the coming months.
The stars were certainly out for the highly anticipated premiere of Think Like A Man’ the movie. The film, which is a visual adaptation of the acclaimed book by comedian Steve Harvey, features an all-star ensemble including Michael Ealy, Kevin Hart, Taraji P. Henson, Meagan Good, Chris Brown, Terrence J, and a brief cameo from ‘Pretty Girl Rock’ performer Keri Hilson.
With an equally anticipated soundtrack to follow, led by Jennifer Hudson and Ne-Yo‘s Rick Ross-assisted track (aptly titled)‘Think Like A Man’, the film and accompanying soundtrack are sure to be a knockout. From the looks of things, knockout beauties Michelle Williams, Kelly Rowland, Gabrielle Union, and more agree.
