Destiny's Child Singer, Michelle Williams joins Fela! (rehearsal photos)

Destiny's Child Michelle William is set to to join the Tony award winning and Grammy nominee Fela! On broadway. The show centers around multi-instrumentalist musician, composer, pioneer of Afrobeat music, human rights and political activist, Fela Anikulapo Kuti. Fela! on Broadway begins its National Tour on Tuesday, Jan. 29 at Washington DC
Michelle will play the role of Sandra, Fela's Love interest. See her @MTV interview on the role and photos after the jump

"I play the role of Sandra Isadore, Fela's love and basically his teacher," she explained. "What I like about Sandra is that she saw something in Fela. Fela was definitely passionate about his music and passionate about what he was feeling — he knew things were going wrong in Nigeria, he knew there was corruption going on — but [he was] emotional about things [that he hadn't] studied, researched and gotten all the facts [about], and that's what Sandra helped him to do. I like how she loved him, saw the potential in him and she helped him to learn more about himself and his country."
