Member of internationally acclaimed female group Destiny’s Child. Hit-making solo singer in her own right. Stage actress (“Aida,” “The Color Purple, “Chicago,” “Fela!”). But it’s a different Michelle Williams who will be greeting longtime fans and winning over new ones with her first album in five years, Journey to Freedom. Arriving in 2014 via eOne Music, the urban inspirational project deftly showcases the singer’s natural talent and versatility. As Williams simply notes, “This is what’s in my heart.” The result is an arresting fusion of R&B, hip-hop, pop, dance and African-influenced beats and rhythms paired with relatable messages about faith, inner strength, patience and joy.(Also see Michelle Williams perform at the All Star Gospel Tribute to Yolanda Adams, Sunday, July 6 at 1:20PM)
