Rockford native Michelle Williams, formerly of Destiny's Child, will soon be releasing her memoir as well as launching a podcast that's getting a lot of talk.

Michelle Williams' memoir titled, Checking In: How Getting Real about Depression Saved My Life—and Can Save Yours, is set to be released in May of 2021. Prior to the book's release, Michelle is sitting down with her celebrity friends to get real on subjects we've been too quiet about for far too long.

In my home, there are regular conversations about techniques for managing different stages of anxiety, depression and overall mental health. As a mental health counselor, my wife is very excited, as am I, about what we'll learn from these conversations of mental health journeys and the coping skills that have worked for others.

The Checking In... podcast just made Oprah Magazine's list of the Most Anticipated Podcasts of 2021, which Michelle shared on Twitter.

Michelle brought in some of her talented friends to give her podcast space a makeover.

Michelle's memoir, Checking In: How Getting Real about Depression Saved My Life—and Can Save Yours will be available on Amazon May 25th, 2021.
