Michelle Williams sacrificed education for music careerJuly 29th, 2008 - 2:25 pm ICT by IANS
London, July 29 (IANS) Former Destiny’s Child singer Michelle Williams says she sacrificed her education to work on her music career. According to contactmusic.com, Williams dropped out of school because she got a call to join the girl group.
She says, “I was so hungry. I said, ‘Mama, let me do one more tour and I’m gonna get you that car’ - there was a Chrysler that she always wanted. I said, ‘After this tour I will go back to school’. After that tour, I got the call about joining Destiny’s Child.”
Williams still tried balancing her soaring pop career with her education. “They wanted me to be an alternate member of the group… I was like, ‘Oh, alternate member? Cool. I can go to school and do my own thing’. But I never was an alternate member.”
“I studied for two years before I started background singing. Many people in my family have degrees. There are doctors, nurses and teachers,” she added.
