Winning: Michelle Williams Lands Major Role In ‘Jesus Christ Superstar’

Published: Friday 4th Apr 2014 by Sam

Together, Destiny’s Child were quite the force. Solo, the ladies are re-writing the girl-group narrative by each enjoying success in their individual lanes.

Since the group split, Michelle Williams has gone on to achieve ample acclaim as a Gospel artist and a Broadway star – appearing in theatrical hits such as ‘The Color Purple’, ‘Chicago’, and ‘Fela!

Today the vocal powerhouse  adds yet another major production to her list – when it was announced that she’ll be embarking on a 50-date tour as a lead in ‘Jesus Christ Superstar’.

Details below…

Williams, who will take on the roll of Mary Magdalene, appeared on Good Morning America today with co-star Brandon Boyd to reveal the news.

No small production, the Andrew Lloyd Webber will be hitting arenas across the US and sets sail in New Orleans on June 9th.

Check out Michelle and Brandon chatting about the show and performing ‘Jesus Christ Superstar’ below…

Love it!

Kudos to Michelle for silencing the naysayers with power moves that are undeniable.

    I actually like Michelle. I have the first gospel album and the Unexpected album. I’m tired of seeing the Poor Michelle trending everywhere, but I’m glad to see she getting checks. I’m totally going. I can’t wait to hear her vocals.

    No shade @ all, but I’ve always said that Michelle’s voice IS responsible for Destiny’s Child gospel/soul sound. She truly doesn’t get enough credit.

      No lies. She taught Beyonce and Kelly a lot. Bey credited her for introducing her to an entirely new world of music/style of singing.

    Good for her. am not a hater, so if you want to praise her do so i for one like her a lot but dont you dare to tell me that she taught beyonce anything because we both know that is not true. her voice was the weakest of all the destiny child members both old and present.

    • Xav April 5, 2014

      No. She has a tone that everyone doesnt care for/that you have to get used to. She has a 3.5-4 octave range just as Beyonce. Kelly has 3.
