Michelle Williams chose to do a remake of a classic Nigerian praise and worship song for her upcoming gospel album.
Williams describes “Say Yes” as an “old African song that’s been around for about 100 years.” She came across it after her producer Harmony Samuels, a Nigerian, told the singer one day, “Michelle, you’ve got to do this song.” -US Magazine
Here is a video from the Mount Zion Singers in Nigerian performing the original song.
Williams, who has a new gospel album ‘Journey To Freedom’ due to be released in September this year, invited former band mates Kelly Rowland and Beyonce Knowles to feature on the song.
What do you think? Did Michelle do the song justice?
