NEW YORK (January 18, 2013)--Michelle Williams, 32, says she decided to finally open up about her struggle with depression in order to encourage others to get help.
The singer-actress, one third of Destiny's Child alongside Beyonce and Kelly Rowland, said that in the past few months she has emerged from years of suffering from "moderate depression."
Williams has a new single, a solo album in the works, and a starring role in a national tour of the Broadway musical "Fela!" but she says she's had days when it was hard "to just get out of bed."
She said exercise, positive thinking, and therapy have helped her.
