From myself (Sam), and all of us here at That Grape Juice, we’d like to wish you – our dear readers – a very Happy New Year!
It’s surreal to think that That Grape Juice is now entering its fifth year online. Oh how time flies when you’re having fun! It’s been such a blessed journey for us in so many ways; a journey I thank you all sincerely for coming along with us on. I really look forward to steering That Grape Juice to amazing new heights in 2012 (we’ve got A LOT in the pipeline…watch this space!)
I also hope that this year brings you all that your heart desires and then some. Onwards and upwards folks. Let’s do this!
After spending much of 2011 touring the States with critically acclaimed play ‘What My Husband Doesn’t Know’, Michelle Williams closes out the year with a return to music.
The soulful singer is hard at work on a new studio album (due 2012); and, so as to whet appetite’s, she’s teamed up with German DJ’s Electric Giant Beatz, featuring as a guest vocalist on their new single ‘On The Run’.
As keen appreciators of the Destiny’s Child star’s vocal prowess, we invited Williams onto our acoustic show The Splash during her recent London visit.
