MICHELLE WILLIAMS SPEAKS OUT ABOUT BEING INSECURE WITH HER VOICE
After 20 years in the business and under constant public scrutiny, Williams said that her time on The Masked Singer gave her the confidence boost that she was lacking. Williams struggled with loving the tone to her voice as it was more gospel-rooted and being in an R&B group, fans were critical of her voice compared to her group members.
Michelle stated “Apparently I don’t have the most commercially appealing voice or whatever,” she said. “People have their favorites, but vocally I was not a favorite in the group, and that stuck with me.” “It’s kind of like a christening all over again of being back out here musically as an artist because honestly, I had put the mic down,” she revealed. “I was like, ‘No, I’ll just speak and mentor and just tell my story, but I won’t sing really ever again. I really haven’t sung at all this year, except for this show.” Luckily, Williams recognized her gift and continued to sing. Had she quit, the world would have missed out on a beautiful voice!
