Destiny’s Child alum joins gospel music artist and viral video sensations on a new version of the Clean Bandit song
Destiny’s Child singer Michelle Williams and gospel superstar Deitrick Haddon, the stars of Oxygen’s “Fix My Choir,” have teamed with YouTube “beat scout” Fresh Big Mouf and YouTube collaborating influencer Tyler Ward on a music video.
TheWrap has an exclusive first look at the video for the crew’s remake of the hit Clean Bandit song, “Rather Be.”
The video stars Ward as a bus driver who picks up a waiting Fresh Big Mouf and a stranded Williams and Haddon on the street. Together, the group sings the tune with the help of the sound of bus brakes, windows and horns.

Williams and Haddon will be mentors on the upcoming series “Fix My Choir” on Oxygen. The series takes the pair around the country as they mentor dysfunctional choirs. They will spend a week with each choir teaching them to sing in harmony so they can reach the next level.
Williams turned toward gospel music after making her name in the R&B girl group, Destiny’s Child. She recently reunited with her Grammy-winning group to sing the song “Say Yes.”
Haddon is a gospel singer, songwriter, music producer and pastor. He also stars on Oxygen’s “Preachers of L.A.”
Ward, who has more than 1.7 million subscribers and 400 million views online, became a well known artist through social media, posting both covers and original songs on Youtube. He has completed three world tours with mainstream artists, including The Jonas Brothers and The Fray. His album, “Honestly,” was released in October of 2013.
Musician Fresh Big Mouf is able to make beats out of anything and anywhere. He has more than 12,000 subscribers and nearly 400,000 views on YouTube.
