Mathew Knowles has revealed that he is eager to work with Beyonce, Michelle Williams, Kelly Rowland and other members of Destiny’s Child on the musical he is creating to tell his version of the group’s story.
Full story below…
We have directly and indirectly spoken to — not only Beyoncé, Kelly [Rowland] and Michelle [Williams] or their representatives — but also some of the former members of the group. We’ve given them the opportunity to be as much involved as they’d like, or [have] as little involvement as they’d like.”
Everybody understands this is my perspective, not their perspective. The girls were very young when they got into this business, so a lot of this perspective, they didn’t really understand.
On contributions from the group’s members…
If they want to review it, they can review it. I wouldn’t want to put anything out that didn’t have everyone’s support.
The musical’s storyline will cover two decades, and although Knowles hasn’t decided exactly which Destiny’s Child songs he will feature, he said it’s “safe to say” that “Survivor” will be one of them since the song’s title is in the musical’s name.
Solange wasn’t getting attention because Destiny’s Child was, kind of, consuming the family. So [the musical] takes you through the ups and downs of a family, as well as Destiny’s Child’s ups and downs. You will be awakened with information that I think possibly surprises you.
A due date is yet to be set.
