What in the world has the former Destiny’s Child singer Michele Williams been up too? We know her former band-mates have been busy creating new music and having babies. However we have not heard much from Michelle at all.
Well it look like Michelle has been busy on Broadway. So far she has starred in several big budget plays such as ‘Aida’, ‘Chicago’, ‘The Color Purple’, ‘What My Husband Doesn’t Know’, and now she can add the Tony Award-winning musical ‘Fela!’ to her resume.
Here is what she had to say about her new casting:
“I am thrilled to join the cast of Fela!,” Williams said in a statement. “This musical journey is one that I’ve wanted to be a part of since first seeing it on stage in 2008. The sounds, the passion and the politics of Fela Kuti have long intrigued me and speak to my heart. I am simply honored.”
The hit production, Fela!, chronicles the life and music of the late Nigerian superstar Fela Kuti. The 31 year old singer will take on the role of Sandra Isadore for the show’s US tour this year.
Fela! is produced by Shawn ‘JAY Z’ Carter, Will & Jada Pinkett Smith and a whole cast of movers and shakers.
