Destiny’s Child reunites for inspirational new video

image

#TaniaOnTheScene - Or nah. LOL! Michelle Williams had Beyonce and Kelly Rowland singing along side her on her new gospel track, “Say Yes.” 

Williams debuted the song’s music video on “Good Morning America” on Wednesday, June 18. When the single first “leaked” — Williams claimed an “unmixed and unmastered” version debuted online too early.

The gospel song is all about Jesus, and basically unites the ladies for a dance party music video.

I was on set for the video shoot and had the awesome opportunity of working with the three, beautiful and talented women.

Check out my look below:

The full video of the three ladies donned in ‘all-white’ dresses, singing their hearts out, is playful and fun.

If you pay close attention, you may recognize my hair or side profile at about 3:18 and 3:22. Unfortunately, that’s the only appearance I made in the video.. I didn’t make the cut for anything else but the experience and opportunity is something that I will cherish for a long time.
