The Williams Girlz contemporary gospel group is a talented group of young sisters, led by father Pastor Michael “Mike” Williams, 40, and their mother Shammanee Williams, 37.
Trinity, 16, sings alto and wants to be a lawyer. A young entrepreneur, Trinity also owns her own bowtie business that is doing very well. Destiny, 15, sings second soprano and dreams of being a doctor. Charity, 14, is a tenor and wants to continue her singing career as an adult. She is also a very talented artist. Faith, 12, sings alto and wants to be a professional basketball player, and Precious, 10, sings first soprano and wants to be a dancer and singer.
There are also two younger members who are growing into their roles within the group: Miracle, 6, loves to dance and wants to be a pastor someday, and two-year-old Elijah is the cutest ever prodigy drummer.
“You would be amazed at what comes out of kids at this age,” Pastor Mike said. “It’s already in there.”
The family lives in Fort Mitchell and the children have all been singing as long as they can remember. Shammanee said Trinity began singing as a one-year-old. Home-schooled, the girls practice with their band on Mondays and practice at home every day. They travel and perform at churches, festivals, shops, restaurants—anywhere they can—and people love to hear them sing.
This past Monday, they completed recording a show for Channel 7 at CTV-Beam, and recently, they finished a national radio tour. They traveled to Las Vegas in March where they won second place in the Stellar’s Best at the 34th Annual BET Stellar Awards, the first and oldest televised gospel awards. Next up is London, England, for the U.S. Meet the U.K. Gospel Explosion Summit, Oct. 9-14.
