Michelle Williams spoke on her YouTube channel about the last Tuesday’s U.S. elections, which resulted in Barack Obama being elected the 44th U.S. President. “I just was so emotional and just overwhelmed by what has gone down,” the former Destiny’s Child star said. “Barack Obama, I salute you. I congratulate you. You know, we’ll be praying for you daily and your family. Congratulations.” Williams added that she thinks “the healing of this country will definitely begin. It can only begin if we just leave the past in the past and continue to move forward.” Watch the clip below.
