"THE MASKED SINGER" BOOSTED MICHELLE WILLIAM'S CONFIDENCE

Michelle Williams of Destiny's Child has opened up about her battle with chronic depression - and her insecurities about her voice.

As part of the iconic trio, she always felt that her voice was less "commercial" than Beyoncé Knowles, and Kelly Rowland's.

For a teen, the constant comparison was devastating and played havoc with her self confidence.

For Michelle, taking part in "The Masked Singer," was a marvelous experience, since it permitted her to sing anonymously, and to be judged on her own merits.
