Former Destiny's Child Singer Michelle Williams Releases New Music Video for Single "Fire" (VIDEO)
Michelle Williams, former singer with Destiny's Child, has released her latest single titled, "Fire" and the official music video. The video was directed by Derek Banks. You can watch the video above. "Fire" will be on her upcoming fourth studio album, Journey to Freedom, which is set to be released this Fall. Williams also recently performed an acoustic performance at Yahoo music of her new single, which you can watch above.
The song has a catchy chorus, over a mid tempo track that talks about Williams' experience when being touched by God. The song over all is a message of overcoming trials, and it mentions a biblical reference of fire when she sings. "Just like them boys Shadrach, Meshack, and Abednego/ I know when I come out the flames won't be smelling like smoke."
Williams has also signed on to join the 50-city arena national tour of "Jesus Christ Superstar" and is joining Gospel singer Deitrick Haddon for a new faith-based series, "Fix My Choir," on the Oxygen channel.
Michelle helped Destiny's Child become one of the best-selling female groups of all time. Her work earned her several awards and accolades including a Grammy Awards and star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame with Destiny's Child, a solo MOBO Award and nominations in the Stellar Awards and NAACP Theatre Awards.
Williams released her debut solo album Heart to Yours which topped the US gospel album chart and became the best-selling gospel release of 2002. Also a critical success, the album won Williams a MOBO Award for "Best Gospel Act". Billboard ranked Williams as the fifth Top Gospel Artist of 2002. In 2004, she released Do You Know which gained Williams a second nomination for "Best Gospel Act" at the 2004 MOBO Awards. After Destiny's Child's disbanded in 2005, Williams released her first pop album, Unexpected in 2008, which spawned the internationally-charting single "We Break the Dawn" and the US Dance number-one "The Greatest". In 2013, she made a return to inspirational music with the lead single, "If We Had Your Eyes" from her upcoming fourth studio album titled Journey to Freedom.
