She was born Tenitra Michelle Williams on July 23, 1980 in Rockford, Illinois. Raised in a Christian family, Michelle developed a close bond to her faith as a child and decided to join the church choir, a career starter that she never thought would bring her a big promise. With her sister, she also joined a musical group called United Harmony and by her high school years, Michelle has channeled her artistic qualities by involving herself in her school's Creative and Performing Arts extracurricular. Surprisingly, she went to study criminal justice in Illinois State of University but after two years, her calling as a singer came back in the form of an offer as Monica's backing singer. Michelle, full with ambition, abandoned her study and pursued her passion.

Exposed to the real world of entertainment, Michelle earned affiliates that brought her name to the ears of Beyonce Knowles. Destiny's Child, the all-girl group formed by Beyonce was on the peak of their career but sadly internal rift came as an obstruction that potentially jeopardize the group's fate. Thus Michelle got a call and eventually joined Beyonce and Kelly Rowland, to form a quartet together with Farrah Franklin in December 1999. They appeared for the first time together on the video of "Say My Name" that was shot in rush in January 2000, an action that later created a lawsuit with the two former members of the band, LeToya Luckett and LaTavia Roberson. Despite their status as newbie in the group, Michelle and Farrah appealed to the band's fans but unfortunately Farrah felt that the vibe in the group had become increasingly negative so she left after five months.
