Michelle Williams - We Break The Dawn
While fellow Destiny’s Child alumni Beyonce and Kelly have gotten major press for their respective solo albums, the third member, Michelle Williams, has quietly done her own thing without nearly as much fanfare. After releasing two gospel albums (Heart To Yours and Do You Know), starring in two Broadway shows (Aida and The Color Purple), and purchasing a share of Chicago’s WNBA franchise, The Sky, the Rockford, Illinois native is finally stepping into the world of mainstream R&B with her upcoming solo album, Unexpected. On the first single, We Break The Dawn, Michelle brings forward a new dance-ready style (similar to Bey’s Beautiful Nightmare), assisted by Timbaland protégés, The Clutch. Unexpected is tentatively set for release in late August.
