Despite her beautiful voice, Michelle Williams has had depression, and she ain't afraid to talk about it… not anymore at least.
While rehearsing for her Broadway musical Fela!, the Destiny's Child singer revealed that she's suffered from moderate depression, adding:
"I had to choose to get out of bed and do whatever I needed to do to be happy. We're taught, 'Just go to church and pray about it. The Lord is going to heal you.' Well, in the meantime, I believe God-gifted people, physicians, doctors, therapists—that's your healing. Take advantage of it. Go see a professional so that they can assess you. It's OK if you're going through something. Depression is not OK, but it is OK to go get help."
Michelle has been dealing with depression since she was 16 years old, and now that she's 32, she's not afraid to talk about it or get help.
We're glad to see Miz Williams happy and healthy because that's just gonna make her upcoming Destiny's Child album even better!!
You go girl!
