You might be aware the Purple Party is just around the corner. The annual dance party benefiting AIDS Services of Dallas is a weekend long affair happening across a slew of nightclubs throughout the city. You can see the schedule and list of DJs here. But I just saw today that former Destiny’s Child singer Michelle Williams is headlining the Saturday night affair at the House of Blues on May 1.
Outside of the group, Williams is known mostly for her urban contemporary gospel music but released her first pop/R&B album, Unexpected in 2008. She just finished up a seven-week stint as Roxie Hart in Chicago on Broadway. Which is all fine and dandy, but really, who can forget the singer’s’ tearful moment from the first season of RuPaul’s Drag Race where Akashia’s lipsynced for her life with Williams’ single, “We Break the Dawn.” It was delightfully cheesy.
In contrast, her video for the single is kinda sexy.
