2011 BET Awards - Arrivals

Michelle Williams does not believe Christians should criticize people like her good friend Beyonce Knowles for her decision to sing gospel music as a secular artist.

Williams, the 34-year-old gospel singer formerly of Destiny’s Child, took to her Twitter account in an emotional post about Christians ridiculing “someone she loved” for singing gospel music. Although Williams did not name Beyonce in her post, the message comes just days after the latter decided to sing a new rendition of Mahalia Jackson’s “Precious Lord, Take My Hand.”

The song rose back to mainstream popularity once again recently after it was featured in the civil rights film, “Selma.” However, it was singer Ledisi that belted out the tune in the film, leaving many to question why Beyonce felt the need to do so at the recent Grammy award show while simultaneously criticizing her performance.
