If you’ve ever been a fan of Destiny’s Child, you definitely know Michelle Williams.
Along with Kelly Rowland and Beyonce, the three formed one of the bestselling girl groups of all time.
The group disbanded in 2006, and the ladies pursued their own careers.
Everyone knows what Kelly and Beyonce have been up to, but what about Michelle Williams?
She has kept a relatively low profile since then—especially compared to her counterparts.
And despite not having a solo career on the level of Beyonce, she still has a respectable net worth of $10 million.
And this is after a misunderstanding with her financial advisor led to a significant investment loss.
So, how did she get here?
Solo Music Career
Michelle Williams released her debut solo album, “Heart to Yours,” in 2002.
It became that year’s bestselling gospel release.
Williams released three more albums, with varying degrees of success:
- Do You Know (2004)
- Unexpected (2008)
- Journey to Freedom (2014)
“Journey to Freedom” was a critical darling, the year’s biggest gospel album, and the singer’s most successful solo album.
Movies and TV Shows
Williams started to act in 2006.
Her appearances have been in movies, TV shows, and even theater like:
- MTV’s Top Pop Group
- Strictly Come Dancing
- The Masked Singer US and UK
- Once on this Island
Michelle Williams has suffered from depression for years, leading her to become a mental health advocate.
In 2021, she released “Checking In: How Getting Real about Depression Saved My Life.”
The book was a hit, and she promptly followed it with another release: “The Daily Check In: A 60-Day Journey to Finding Your Strength, Faith, and Wholeness.”
Williams became a minority owner of Chicago Sky in 2006.
The WNBA team was based close to her home, which made her ownership special.
This is one of the singer’s favorite investments because it positively impacts at-risk youths.
Michelle Williams has a podcast, “Checking In,” under The Black Effect Podcast Network from Charlamagne Tha God.
She has featured stars like Jill Scott, Jay Barnett, and Jennifer Hudson on the podcast.
In 2015, Williams launched her home décor business, Believe By Michelle Williams.
The business currently sells exclusive luxury candles.
Michelle Williams: A Diverse Portfolio
If there’s one thing to learn from the former Destiny’s Child star, we shouldn’t depend on a single source of income.
She has built an impressively diverse portfolio using her music background as a base.
This is why her net worth currently stands at $10 million; if she keeps this up, it will definitely rise.
