Billboard: Michelle Williams Explains How Destiny’s Child Reunion Came Together For Beyonce’s Coachella Performance

Michelle Williams knows how to keep a secret. “We’re the secret queens,” the singer tells Billboard in the wake of performing two consecutive weekends at Coachella with headliner Beyoncé and Kelly Rowland. The trio, who rose to commercial acclaim in the late ‘90s and early aughts as Destiny’s Child, had been keeping the surprise under wraps since February, when Bey reached out to her former band members and asked them to join her for a medley of their mega-hits including “Say My Name,” “Lose My Breath” and “Soldier.”

“It’s just like old girlfriends coming together,” explains the 37-year-old, who last reunited as Destiny’s Child at the 2015 Stellar Awards where they performed her upbeat gospel single “Say Yes.” “It’s something that when the three of us come together, we all know we feel safe within each other. Like I got your back. We’re good. I really love that about us.”

Since Destiny’s Child went on hiatus in the wake of their last album, 2004’s Destiny Fulfilled, Williams hasn’t slowed. She’s put out four solo full-lengths including her final release, 2014’s Journey to Freedom (which won’t be her last); starred on stage as leads in Chicago and Aida; launched her own furniture and candle line Believe by Michelle; and, more recently, got engaged to pastor Chad Johnson just prior to her Coachella performance. Still teeming with excitement from the pair of shows, Williams explains how it all came together.

There were rumors before Coachella that a Destiny’s Child reunion might happen. How did the conversations begin for this? Did Beyoncé call you and just say, “It’s time?”

Yeah, that’s really what it is. We talk all the time so when she called I just thought she was gonna say, “Hey I wanna go to lunch, I wanna come to dinner” or something. So it literally was the phone call, like yay. “Y’all know I’m doing Coachella, I would love for y’all to come out and we’ll figure out what we’re going to do.” And I’m like, of course. I love performing with the girls. There’s nothing like it. Something happens when the three of us come together. I just love the power it shows, the unity that it shows, that no matter where we are in life — personally, career wise — that we make time for each other.

It seems like you’ve always had this connection with each other. You perform together every few years.

Every few years, right? Doesn’t it seem like a cool pattern every two to three years, it just seems like we do something. I’ll never forget years ago when we announced… I wouldn’t even call it the first breakup, when we announced our first hiatus or the second hiatus, we were doing an interview and I remember Beyoncé saying we will always do stuff together, on each other’s projects, videos, tours, whatever. And guess what? We have kept that promise.

Beyoncé’s show was impeccable. Everything was thought out down to the most minute detail. How far in advance did you guys start working on this?

I know for her performance period, people started coming to town in like January. And that’s to get the music and for her to go over her ideas musically. So the music director’s in town and the musicians. It’s kind of deconstructing what you already know and trying to do something fresh, especially because she took that year off and she had a baby and she couldn’t do Coachella last year. So she was just like, “I’ve got to do something fresh that’s never been done” as far as an artist having all those people on stage with her at the same time. I’d say we started with our portion maybe toward the end of February. So it was kinda like keeping it secret all this time.

Quite obviously. Beyoncé particularly is very under wraps. 

Beyoncé has been very private all of the years that I’ve known her. She’s fun, goofy, laughs, everything, but she’s always been very private. So those around her who are her friends, you kind of respect that. But even if she wasn’t that private, when you’re friends with somebody or when you call somebody your sister, they might tell you something, you don’t tell that.

How do you keep that many people from spoiling the surprise?

Well, I think it’s just a given. I don’t know what all the band members were told, but I’m assuming that people had to sign confidentiality agreements. That’s the only way that something of that magnitude was kept. I mean, even the location of where we were rehearsing, I was like okay, I just know paparazzi is gonna get wind of this soon. But no. She was able to be comfortable and rehearse without her stuff getting leaked. And that’s just a precedent she has set and I think more people can learn from that.

Michelle Williams is still glowing after her history-making performances at alongside friend and Destiny’s Child member Beyoncé and Kelly Rowland. Not only did Beyoncé make history as the first black woman to kick off the festival, but 2018 marks the 20th anniversary of Destiny’s Child. The group’s reunion nearly broke the internet (and renewed music streams sales) as fans scrambled to watch their signature moves.

At the same time, Williams is working on new inspirational music, managing her Believe By Michelle home decor line, just moved to Los Angeles and is preparing for her upcoming wedding. So far, it’s been a very good year for the Rockford, Illinois native.

“For the past couple of years I’ve been really realizing how blessed we are to have this type of effect and impact on people,” says Williams of her Destiny’s Child success. “It’s been about 13 years since we’ve released an album together officially and we still have that effect.”

For two consecutive Saturdays in April, Michelle Williams joined Beyoncé and Kelly Rowland in the desert for a Destiny’s Child reunion at Coachella. The ladies wore custom Balmain creations, delivered medleys of their greatest hits, and stood tall with hundreds of dancers and members of marching bands from black colleges. According to Michelle, the DC reunion started with a phone call. “We are in touch all the time, whether it’s going to dinner or something like that,” she tells Cosmopolitan.com. “I just remember Bey on the phone being like, ‘Hey, I’m doing Coachella, I’d like for you to be part of it.’ And it’s like, of course. Of course. When it comes to my girls, I’m going to be there as best as I can, as much as I can.”

People:Michelle Williams Is Engaged! How the Destiny’s Child Star Found Love with Pastor Chad Johnson

This “Independent Woman” is off the market: Michelle Williams is engaged to pastor Chad Johnson!

After a year together, Johnson recently proposed to the Destiny’s Child singer — and the pair can’t wait to walk down the aisle. Nearly one month into their secret engagement, the couple opened up to PEOPLE exclusively about their love story.

“We could not contain this any longer!” Williams says of finally sharing the happy news.

The Pastor and the Pop Star

Williams met her husband-to-be in March of 2017, when she attended a spiritual retreat in Arizona run by Johnson, a pastor and life coach who has also worked as a chaplain for pro sports teams including the Pittsburgh Steelers and L.A. Dodgers.

“I was in a horrible, dark place,” says Williams, 37, who had recently ended a relationship and opened up about a cheating ex on The Real. “I just needed to go somewhere where I could get a message of hope and restoration, rejuvenation — get connected to God.”

Johnson, 40, could relate.

“When we met, both of us were in very similar places on a personal level,” says Johnson, who at the time had all but given up dating. “Michelle was coming off the heels of a really bad relationship, and I was just in a place of despair as well.”

Forbes: Michelle Williams Of Destiny’s Child On Life After Depression

Michelle Williams Of Destiny’s Child On Life After Depression

by Forbes Contributors: Pauleanna Reid

Today mental health is increasingly reported about in the media, yet is still a topic absent from school lesson plans and for many, an unspoken stigma not discussed at home. One-half of all chronic mental illness begins by the age of 14; three-quarters by the age of 24. Those who suffer silently struggle to stay afloat. Some struggle to stay alive.

Singer, songwriter, entrepreneur and former member of Destiny’s Child, Michelle Williams, is no stranger to mental health issues. While publicly Williams seemed to have it all (as part of one of the top-selling female groups of all time), she was silently suffering for decades. As Williams describes, “It is a profound sadness, a profound worthlessness, which even after you have accomplished so much – you can be the best wife, mom, artist in the world but you don’t feel like that – you feel worthless. So none of your career accomplishments, none of that even matters.”

Refinery29: Destiny’s Child’s Michelle Williams Gives Great Relationship Advice

It’s been three years since Destiny’s Child member Michelle Williams released a new project. For me at least, it doesn’t seem like that much time has passed given that the lyrics to “Say Yes” — the infectiously catchy gospel/pop single that featured her former group mates Beyoncé and Kelly Rowland — still pops in my head at unsuspecting moments. For any other artist, this could be an ominous sign of troubled waters, but for Williams, it was simply time to live her life.

On a panel at the Fearless Reloaded conference in Atlanta last month, she talked about some of her non-musical accomplishments during that time, which include debuting her line of bedding called Believe at Home with Evine. This year, she also opened up about her past struggles with depression during a segment on CBS’s The Talk. Williams also opened up her heart to a new man. She is currently dating Chad Johnson, the official chaplain for the Pittsburgh Steelers.

That latter point is important. Because during a cherished one-on-one conversation with Williams before her panel, she told me about her self-care, why she ordered her Thanksgiving dish online, and when we can expect new music from her. But she also dropped some gems about dating that I think we could all use. Check out our conversation below.
