Michelle Williams’ incredible delivery of the national anthem on Sept. 9 left Destiny’s Child fans begging for a reunion.
The NFL’s 2021 regular season kicked out on Sept. 9 in Tampa, Florida, with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers taking on the Dallas Cowboys at Raymond James Stadium, and while that was thrilling, it was Michelle Williams’ performance of the national anthem that gave us goosebumps.

The former Destiny’s Child singer’s performance was lauded on Twitter, with former star wide receiver Chad Johnson saying, “Michelle crushed the National Anthem.” Bill O’Reilly was similarly impressed, tweeting afterward, “Excellent performance of the National Anthem by Michelle Williams in Tampa.” Inspiring. That’s fantastic!”
The performance also makes us even more eager for a Destiny’s Child reunion than we already were. Fortunately for us, Michelle recently stated that she would love to work with Beyonce and Kelly Rowland again on new music.
Michelle stated in her new book, Checking In: How Getting Real About Depression Saved My Life – and Can Save Yours, that she “would be lying if I said I wish we weren’t still married.” “I’m not sure I want to do another 60-city tour,” she says. You get it? We’re not 25 anymore. But I’ll just throw this out there: B, Kelly, if you’re reading this, we could always cut a short album and maybe do a tiny tour. It’s all on me, Popeyes!”
When the duo split up professionally in 2006, Michelle claimed it “felt like someone had blasted something radioactive in my life.” “However, in retrospect, I shouldn’t have been surprised,” she wrote. “I mean, our last album was called Destiny Fulfilled. I could see how Kelly and Beyoncé were ready to call it quits.
They’d been in Destiny’s Child since they were nine years old, which was a long time in comparison to me. And it was a good moment for them to call it a day. But I was emotionaly spinning like a top. In fact, I couldn’t believe what I was hearing.” The singer said that she was “in denial,” believing that the band would continue on for “a couple more tours.”
Perhaps there is reason to be optimistic about the future?
