The beautiful and talented Michelle Williams knows no end to her list of accomplisments, which include Broadway actress, entrepreneur, designer, television host, and inspirational speaker, and as she enters the second act of her already prolific career, there is much more to come.
Since her hit-making days as a member of Destiny Child, one of the best-selling female groups of all time, and then as a solo artist with four critically acclaimed albums (Heart to Yours, Do Your Know, Unexpected, and Journey to Freedom), Williams has grown professionally and personally. While, the Grammy-award winning singer/songwriter has enjoyed the success of her singing career, she has turned her focus to projects and ventures she feels she was put on Earth to do.
One of those ventures is Believe at Home by Michelle Williams, a collection of home products, sold exclusively through the digital commerce company, Evine, consisting of exquisite and vibrant comforters, duvets, coverlets, sheets, and shams. It was her grandmother’s quilting that made Williams want to develop the beautiful and sophisticated line. “My grandmother made all of the bedding in her house, the comforters, the quilts — everything except for the sheets,” Williams remembers. The best part of running Believe at Home and being an entrepreneur is seeing her vision come to life.
Another role that Williams feels passionately about is that of motivational speaker. She has spoken at events and forums across the country—captivating and rousing audiences, young and old. Last spring, she was a special guest speaker at a reception for Hillary Clinton, as well as the keynote speaker at the University of Notre Dame’s “Lunch and Learn.” Williams also moderated GRAMMY Pro’s “Up Close & Personal” panel featuring Lalah Hathaway and other music artists. Later this year, she will be a featured speaker at the Kennedy Forum in Chicago, an annual gathering where national and global thought leaders will discuss the stigma against mental health and substance use disorders. Mental health is an issue that has personally affected Williams and over the last few years. She has been very vocal and candid about her battle with depression, which she was able to overcome through her faith in God and therapy.
In addition, Williams has signed on to be an ambassador for the Office on Women's Health, a division of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, to promote awareness about maintaining optimum physical and mental health through nutrition, exercise, and proper medical care, among women and young girls. She also plans to launch her own series of empowerment events, titled the Believe Tour. The seminars will feature panels, workshops, and other programs to inspire people to follow their dreams.
In 2003, Williams fell in love with the Broadway stage, where she found solace and serenity, after making her debut in the title role of the hit musical “Aida,” succeeding Toni Braxton. Next, she appeared in a production of “The Color Purple,” playing blues singer Shug Avery in 2007, followed by “Chicago” on Broadway and London’s West End as chorus girl Roxie Hart in 2009, and then the stage play “What My Husband Doesn’t Know” in 2011 and national tour with the musical “Fela!” as Sandra Isadore in 2013.
The secret to Michelle Williams’ success has not only been her strong faith, but also the fact that she loves what she does and follows her dreams. “If you are working hard, setting your goals, and you’re a good person, everything you set out to do can be done. Absolutely.”
