In this May 2007 interview, host Cindy Rhodes speaks to the multi-talented artist about getting her start, her 2nd album “Ms Kelly” (released in June 2007), her growing acting career, and if Kelly visits any of her fans’ websites. As part of the promotional tour, Rowland talks about her performance at the prestigious Essence Music Festival in New Orleans.
Superstar singer and actress Kelly Rowland is best known as one of the founding members (along with Beyonce) of Destiny’s Child, the bestselling girl group of all-time. Rowland is a four-time Grammy Award-winning pop and R&B songstress and songwriter (three Grammies with Destiny’s Child and one Grammy as a solo artist). Rowland, who was born in Atlanta, raised in both Atlanta and Houston, and currently lives in Sugar Land, Texas, honed her acting chops starring in the blockbuster motion picture “Freddy vs. Jason,” as well as the Will Smith-produced feature film “The Seat Filler.” A spokesperson for Youth AIDS and a participant in the VH1 Save the Music Foundation, Rowland and Beyonce are also the founders of the “Knowles-Rowland Center for Youth,” a multi-purpose community outreach facility in downtown Houston.
