So much to talk about. The first topic today, is the book “soul survivors” an out biography. Whose idea was that.
I know it’ been a while Destiny’s Child has been in the game for a while
now so we figured that now it’s time to put out a book, whole bunch of people puttin’ out their own unofficial.

spoke t truth now people can see more inside the emotions of Destiny’s Child.

A lot obviously.
I think people sometimes they see you on t.V. And forget you a real person. We’ve been through a lot of the same struggles that most people have been through and i think you can learn more about our personalities and see that we are real people. We bleed, we hurt and make mistakes.
