It’s destiny! Best known as one-third of 65-million-album-selling Trio Destiny’s Child, Michelle Williams is in Toronto for a limited run as Teen Angel in the Toronto production of Grease at Elgin Theatre. Attendees of the shows also will be treated to a special two-song performance afterwards by the Grammy winner who also has found success in theatre on Broadway and solo as a Pop and Gospel Artist. She even stays behind after to meet fans if you are lucky enough to score a ticket!
It was a joy meeting Williams at last and seeing how happy she made fans in this rare Toronto appearance. She is so stunning! One fan even burst into “Survivor” by Destiny’s Child for her, graciously listening to her. Fiancé Chad Johnson (seen below in white T-shirt) was there too, proud and supportive!
Earlier in the day she did the rounds on morning television staples The Morning Show and CP24 Breakfast!

More on GREASE TORONTO, which plays till early July, here.
Before there was Beyoncé, Kelly and Michelle, there was Beyoncé, Kelly, Latavia and LeToya! And if you’re on the same page as me, you’d agree that Destiny’s Child was at its finest with its original lineup. No, No, No, Bills Bills Bills, Say My Name, Jumpin’ Jumpin’ and Bug a Boo would place the Group on the map internationally in the late ’90s and early ’00s and although their rifts were quite public, the Music they made together more than speaks for itself.
Founding Destiny’s Child Member LeToya Luckett has been in Toronto for the past while filming the fourth season of BET‘s Single Ladies (yes, the irony!), the Series produced by Queen Latifah. Luckett on the Series plays Felicia Price, owner of an influencial Music Management Company. In addition to this latest turn, she also starred in HBO‘s Treme and on her own has achieved success as a Solo Act, reaching number one on the Billboard Hot 200 with her self-titled Disc, LeToya in 2006.
It was an amazing experience getting to meet Luckett who almost wasn’t recognizable in her short bob! She nonetheless was amazingly gracious before heading-in after an early wrap on-set. Single Ladies films in Toronto till the end of December.
Beyoncé. Love on Top. Crazy in Love. End of Time. Baby Boy. Single Ladies. A Destiny’s Child Reunion. Halo. An Exploding Guitar. Live Singing. These are some of the things that the 2013 Super Bowl Halftime Show was comprised of!
