Michelle Williams Sings Inspirational Message in ‘If We Had Your Eyes’ Video
With Beyonce and Kelly Rowland making noise in 2013, it’s only right that Michelle Williams gets in on the act. The Destiny’s Child songbird just premiered a new video for her latest single, ‘If We Had Your Eyes.’
Williams brings her gospel-tinged R&B to forefront in the clip, which was directed by celebrity photographer Derek Blanks.
The video revolves around three different stories of people who are being prejudged by others in the wrong way. There’s even a scene that pays tribute to murdered teen Trayvon Martin. The song’s producer Harmony Samuels and former DC member LeToya Luckett also make cameos.
Williams said the song was inspired by an actual homeless man. “The homeless person asked [songwriter Al Sherrod Lambert] for some money, so he gave him all that he had,” she recalls. “The homeless man eventually started speaking into him.”
The 33-year-old singer is currently working on her fourth album, ‘Journey to Freedom,’ which is due out later this year.
