From 'Say My Name' to 'Say Yes'; Destiny's Child reunites on gospel song

Well Hallelujah, some good news for the ladies of former power group Destiny’s Child. When Michelle Williams and Kelly Rowland joined Beyoncé Knowles onstage for an electric set during the 2013 Super Bowl halftime show, fans were hyped that the group was finally getting back together. It wasn’t to be at that time; however the divas dropped another tease Wednesday with the release of “Say Yes”.

Don’t grab your miniskirts in glee and dash out to the clubs just yet. The masters of reinvention have surprised us again. “Say Yes” is actually a gospel song. It is a remake of a Nigerian hymn. This version is a high-energy, drum-filled song that promises to have the church ushers dancing in the aisles.

The ladies joined together on the project which will be the first single from Michelle William’s upcoming gospel album "Journey to Freedom." Tuesday night the ladies were spotted leaving the set of a so-called secret project in Maplewood, New Jersey, that is reportedly where they filmed a video for the song. See the crowd screaming as Beyoncé left the shoot.

The song is a culmination of a whirlwind few months for Williams, Rowland, and Knowles. On June 9th, Williams will star as Mary Magdalene in a touring production of the musical Jesus Christ Superstar. Kelly Rowland married her longtime boyfriend and manager Tim Witherspoon on May 9th in an intimate ceremony in Costa Rica. And on May 5th , Beyoncé was stuck on an elevator forced to watch as her sister Solange Knowles launched an explosive attack on Beyoncé’s husband Jay Z.

Hopefully happy times are ahead for the members of the group. If only for a moment, they are singing a joyfully upbeat tune on this track. The ladies switch leads and show why each member in Destiny’s Child was a force to be reckoned with. The song reminds us why we miss the tight harmonies of the pop girl groups of yesteryear.

Destiny’s Child wasn’t known for wearing the most conservative costumes during their performances, so it will be interesting to see their attire once the gospel video is released. Solange also participated in the video shoot, but by all accounts, it was a peaceful set. Until the video drops you can whet your appetite by taking a listen to the song here.
