Michelle Williams wants to sing for The Lord. The former Destiny’s Child member recently inked a deal with Light Records to drop a new gospel album in January 2013.
James Robinson, president of Light Records, said in a statement:
“It’s an honor to work with an icon like Michelle Williams and her team. As a fan of her other two inspirational projects, I was drawn to Michelle’s comfort, confidence and genuineness. With her pure heart for God and people, our goal is to continue her brand of love, faith and encouragement through song.”
Michelle expressed her excitement on her new venture:
“I am very excited to partner with Light/eOne. I am honored to follow in the footsteps of Light Record legends, THE WINANS and ANDRAE CROUCH. When I was a little girl I would listen to them and to be on the same label they once were is amazing! Light/eOne has been very supportive of my vision to inspire and give hope through my music.”
Michelle released a solo gospel album back in 2002, “Heart To Yours” which received positive reviews and was nominated for a GMA Dove Award and Stellar Award.
