I’ve said this before, but despite being an atheist, gospel music lifts my soul. When Michelle Williams released ‘Say Yes’ in 2014 I was going through a tricky time and I used to play this song over and over and I would always feel lifted by it.
Almost a year after its release, Michelle united with her Destiny’s Child bandmates Beyoncé and Kelly to perform the song live at the 2015 Stellar Awards and the result was spectacular.
I kind of love that their first performance together in years was not a huge production number full of dancers and extravagant costumes. Here we have them all dressed simply and just standing together singing which is ultimately the essence of any good vocal group such as Destiny’s Child.
I love hearing the crowd slowly realise that Bey and Kelly are on stage with Michelle. The girls keep their composure as the audience (who had no idea this was coming) go crazy for them. I would have been the same way to be fair. In fact, I’m still waiting patiently on that DC reunion…
