Michelle Williams Joins Fela! Tour
Former Destiny’s Child singer Michelle Williams will be joining the latest national tour of the musical Fela!
Williams has already appeared in numerous theater productions such as Aida, The Color Purple, and Chicago and the gopspel singer will now be touring with Fela! when the show opens at Sidney Harman Hall in Washington, D.C., on Jan 29. The 32-year-old star will be playing Fela’s African-American lover, Sandra Isadore.
Fela is based on Nigerian musician and political activist, Fela Anikulapo Kuti, and will play in 16 cities including Miami, Atlanta, Cleveland, Dallas, Los Angeles, Seattle and Nashville.
Oh and for those who didn’t know, Jay-Z is one of the producers of Fela! which may or may not have had something to do with her involvement. Either way go Michelle!
