Foot Loose: Michelle Williams Joins British Dancing Show
Former Destiny's Child singer Michelle Williams is returning to the U.K. this fall to appear on the dance competition series 'Strictly Come Dancing.'The talent contest, similar to 'Dancing With the Stars,' kicks off on Sept. 10.
"Michelle is a great booking for us -- as she's an amazing dancer and extremely glamorous. We said that we were aiming big this year, and we hope fans of the show will realize that with a booking like her," a source close to the production told Britain's Sun.
The Rockford, Ill.-bred singer returns to London almost a year after her stint as the first African American woman to play Roxie Hart in 'Chicago' in London's West End.Williams resumed her role in the Broadway version of 'Chicago' this past February for three months, before joining the touring cast for the Los Angeles run shortly thereafter.Following her appearance on 'Strictly Come Dancing,' the 30-year-old singer will return to the United States to begin working on her new pop CD.~Jawn Murray
