Michelle Williams is an American singer and songwriter. She was a member of the top-selling American R&B girl group Destiny’s Child, along with Beyoncé and Kelly Rowland.

Michelle is the daughter of Anita (Washington) and Dennis Myles Williams III.

Michelle started singing in her church choir. She later joined such gospel groups as United Harmony. As much as she loved music, Michelle tried a different path in college. She studied criminal justice at Illinois State University, before dropping out to pursue her first love.

In 1999, Michelle got her first big break. She was hired as a backup singer for R&B star Monica for a tour. Before long, Michelle reached new heights of musical success. She was recommended to Beyoncé Knowles and Kelly Rowland, who were looking for someone to join their hit group, Destiny’s Child.

Michelle’s paternal grandparents were Dennis Myles Williams, Jr. and Freda Neal Nolan (the daughter of Luke Nolan and Sevilla).

Michelle’s maternal grandparents are Eddie Washington and Sammie.

People only pay attention to Beyonce because she is the prettiest of the two. Kelly and Michelle did solo albums and they weren’t really good.

Poor Michelle. Everyone seems to forget about her.

She kinda set herself up for that, not many young people that I know of buy gospel music . Young people are all about twerking, although from what I’ve seen on videos, their doing that in the church now. So she might have a chance

why poor ?

she has a big net worth,fun and seems to be very happy

she is the most religious of the three and she declined multi mullion deals of the big companies in order to make the music she wants
