Oxygen’s ‘Fix My Choir’ Aims For Life’s Inspired Harmonies

Grammy winning singer Michelle Williams and gospel singer/pastor Deitrick Haddon (Preachers of L.A.) spearhead Oxygen’s new series Fix My Choir which, if the title suggests, will bring new harmonies and a reinvigorated attitude to various choirs in need of direction.

“It goes way beyond the music,” says Haddon. “People have learned how to harmonize and sing over their issues in a choir. And there are a lot of issues in a choir. That’s the beautiful thing about it – we’ve been able to confront their demons and become better singers.”

For Michelle Williams, her journey as a singer was obviously shaped by her family and choir, but it also took certain individuals to nurture her passion and drive. Click on the audio bar to hear the Destiny’s Child member and solo artist (Journey to Freedom comes out September 9) talk about how the song “Reach Out And Touch” marked a formative stage in her life. In the clip, Haddon also elaborates how talent shows and performing the Michael Jackson/Paul McCartney track “Say, Say, Say” gave him early confidence as a singer.

Fix My Choir premieres this fall on Oxygen.
