Michelle Williams co-hosts The Real

Michelle Williams performs for the Chicago Voices Concert

What would happen if some of the greatest voices to come out of Chicago joined forces on a single stage?

You’d hear more than just jazz and rap, gospel and blues, classical and folk.

You’d encounter the sound of the city itself, for Chicago has nurtured and shaped all those idioms, and then some. Without the blues innovations of Muddy Waters and Howlin’ Wolf, the gospel thunder of Mahalia Jackson, the folk incantations of Steve Goodman, the jazz seductions of Nat King Cole and the contributions of uncounted other Chicagoans, American music would be much the poorer.

Anyone who doubts that proposition probably was not at the Civic Opera House on Saturday evening, when opera star Renee Fleming and a stylistically far-reaching cast of singers staged a three-hour marathon aptly titled “Chicago Voices Concert.” More than just a gathering of musically wide-ranging performers, the event made tangible this city’s enormous impact on how America — and, arguably, the world — sings.

You didn’t have to be a Chicagoan to be struck by the caliber of these performers and the musical lineage that led up to them, the city’s musical history illuminated via several videos shown between songs. Though the evening certainly had its minor flaws and programming omissions, the sheer sweep of the proceedings and breadth of musical languages made this a concert like none other (it was filmed for broadcast March 30 on WTTW-Ch. 11).

True, we hear plenty of jazz, blues, gospel, classical, pop, rock and you-name-it at the city’s summertime music festivals and all year long in Chicago clubs and concert halls. But when an event packs so much content into a single night and flows this smoothly (despite so many moving parts), you realize that you’re encountering more than just another entertainment.

For “Chicago Voices” amounted to an unapologetically proud statement about what this city has meant to the art of song, the evidence mounting one full-throated tune at a time.

Add to this folk legend John Prine’s soft-but-searing performances of his “Angel from Montgomery” and “Hello in There” (which brought the room to a hush), Broadway singer Jessie Mueller’s slow-build-big-finish version of “She Used to Be Mine” and gospel vocalist Michelle Williams’ jubilant account of “How I Got Over” (backed by the sumptuous Voices of Trinity Mass Choir), and you had a deeply satisfying tour of melody-making forged in Chicago.

Michelle Williams chats with the Houston Chronicle ahead of holiday event

Next year marks two decades since the release of “No, No, No,” the first single from Houston-born girl group Destiny’s Child. But, perhaps more important, it’s been more than a decade since the group went on hiatus.
A couple of recent online blips grew hopes that the trio would reunite for 2017.

Members Michelle Williams, Beyoncé and Kelly Rowland recently participated in the Mannequin Challenge, a viral video craze that requires participants to remain frozen for several seconds. And an official DC3 Instagram account popped up in October.

Williams answers the reunion question before it’s even asked during a recent interview.

“We don’t talk about it,” she says. “When we get together, we’re so happy to see each other that doesn’t come to mind.”I think we were all shocked at the Instagram page. None of us knew about it. Everybody’s like, ‘Oh, my God, they’re doing something, it’s verified.’ It is a blessing that people still say, ‘Are y’all gonna get together?’ Heck, when I see Justin Timberlake, I’m gonna ask him, ‘When is NSync getting back together?’

“I don’t have the answers, other than we love each other and that’s it. I’m probably gonna find out when y’all find out.”

Williams joined Destiny’s Child in 2000 and became part of the group’s final lineup, contributing to the “Survivor” and “Destiny Fulfilled” albums. She was the first member to release a solo album, 2002’s “Heart to Yours,” and has found success in the gospel and dance genres.

That solo shine extends to the holidays as Williams will headline the 97th annual Mayor’s Holiday Celebration and Tree Lighting Friday at City Hall. Before the caroling begins, she talked Christmas memories, 2017 goals and why you’ll never see her fighting for sweaters at a mall.

Q: You lived in Houston during the DC3 days. What comes to mind when you think of the city?
A: The very, very first time I came to Houston. And the reason why I came to Houston was to finally meet my sisters Beyoncé and Kelly Rowland. Pappadeaux comes to mind. The food. My old apartment that I used to have.

Q: Are you big on Christmas?
A: It’s a time when you’re able to be home with your family. I’ve traveled close to 200,000 miles this year, just on one airline. I live in the Chicago area, so it’s cold up here. I do not look forward to that. It’s disrespectful. I do not like cold weather at all. I loved the humidity, the heat (in Houston).

Q: What’s one of the best gifts you ever received?
A: My parents got us our own TV. You really were big-time if you tell your classmates you got a TV.

Q: Something you got that wasn’t particularly high on your list?
A: I had an uncle who was a retired math teacher. He would give us stuff like socks and pajamas and calculators for Christmas. I mean, I will take it. I need socks, I guess. My mother is guilty, too. She’s gotten me pajamas for Christmas. Tell people to find me the ugliest pair of pajamas ever, and I have to wear them, and I have to post it to my Instagram page as a challenge. We’ll start a pajama challenge.

Q: Favorite holiday food?
A: I think of all the sweets, the cakes, the brownies, the cookies. My grandmother did these amazing cream cheese brownies. And she would only do it around Christmas, so we had to wait for those.

Q: Are you a big Christmas shopper?
A: My shopping process is on Christmas Eve. I go out and get gift cards, unless there is something specific that my mom or dad wants. I just think about the pressure that it puts on people to be out and about, to get stuff that they can’t afford. I don’t like the hustle and bustle of being in big malls and trying to get things. I’m not out in the street trying to compete with somebody for this ugly sweater. I’m not doing it.

Q: What’s on your list this year?
A: Oooh. Maybe some, I don’t know, nice luggage? I’m not in need of anything. I don’t want anything. I’m single, so everything I want, I have to get it myself. Maybe you could put a nice, handsome man under the tree that says, “I’m going to get you everything you want.” I know we sang “Independent Women,” but I’m tired of being independent. I am tired.

Q: You recently launched a bedding line called Believe. What was the motivation?
A: My grandmother was a huge inspiration to so many of us in our family. She was a seamstress, and everything in her house – bedding, curtains and draperies – she made those by hand. She made every child in the family quilts. Now mind you, my mother has eight brothers and sisters. It had our name, date of birth, how much we weighed. It had a patchwork baby on it. She even had it down to the complexion of our skin. I don’t sew, but I still somehow wanted to keep the legacy of what my grandmother started. And my mother is amazing in interior design. When I grew up, my mother had pride in her living room and how our bedrooms looked.

Q: Have you been working on new music?
A: I’m interested in doing a holiday album for next year. I’ve always wanted to do a classic Christmas album. Of course, coming from the type of music I do, you have to have some fun, upbeat music on there, too. Some new, original material. Maybe I can incorporate pajamas and calculators in a song?

Q: “8 Days of Christmas” from Destiny’s Child was a good example of blending traditional and modern elements.
A: We were busy touring, and sometimes after a show late at night, we’d go in the studio and do a song. One of my favorites on the album, “Opera of the Bells,” that was recorded at Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis’ studio in Minneapolis.

Q: What are your goals for the new year?
A: I’m hoping to accomplish the expansion of my bedding line. I want to go into retail. I want to have my own furniture. I hope to continue to do more theater. Broadway is calling my name again. I have to get on that stage. I’m in the beginning stages of a book. I’m really, really excited about what we’re already planning for next year.

Michelle Williams gives back to Rockford family

ROCKFORD — Auburn graduate turned pop-star, Michelle Williams returned home to Rockford today to surprise a family in need.

Williams surprised a family of eight with clothes, coats and hats for the winter, paid for by the Boys and Girls Clubs of America 12 Days of Giving Program. Williams grew up in a working class family before her days as a member of Destiny’s Child. Her mother was a nurse, her father a factory worker. She learned the importance of giving back early on, she said.

“I have an uncle who’s a physician here in Rockford,” she said. “And I remember being at church around the holidays and seeing him and his wife give Christmas presents to almost every child at the church. And I remember saying when I grow up, I want to be able to do that.”

The family was nominated by staff at the Blackhawk Boys and Girls Club to receive the surprise. A blended family with six children ranging from ages four to 16, mom Jessica Tellez said the act of kindness gives her hope that there are still people in the world who will do something good for nothing in return.

Williams, who spends most of her time between Rockford and California working in music and public speaking, said meeting the family and celebrating with them reminds her to appreciate the little things.

“Watching the kids open up their presents was mind blowing. It was so amazing to see what one is grateful for versus someone else who might think they have everything, but to know that a warm coat is something to scream about and be excited about — it touches my heart.”
