Michelle Williams on Beyonce's National Anthem Controversy: "Let It Go"

Facebook.com/MichelleWilliamsMichelle Williams stopped by Good Morning America on Thursday to discuss her new role in the musical Fela, but the conversation immediately turned to her band mate Beyonce's lip-synching controversy.  Michelle said she is upset that the incident blew up.

"It's disappointing and saddening to me," Michelle told ABC's Amy Robach.  "I know what she possesses.  That was such a big moment for her.  I wish people would just let it go and just continue to look for what she's going to be bringing to y'all in the future.  She's got some heat."

Michelle is referring to Beyonce's upcoming performance during the Super Bowl halftime show in New Orleans on February 3.

DC3 has been busy after an eight-year hiatus.  They recently released a new Pharrell Williams-produced single, "Nuclear," to be featured on an upcoming album titled Love Songs.

"It just showcases where we left off from, but it feels like we never left," Michelle says of the new single, which she co-wrote.  "The vocals are just beautiful. ...I had a chance to put my two cents in the song.  And I'm just happy we had that moment."

Still, Michelle is gearing up to take the stage on a 16-city tour of the musical Fela, a story centered on the Nigerian songmaker who inspired his nation to change.

"I'm so excited to have this opportunity to be in Fela.  [It's] an amazing love story but it also talks about his passion for music and his passion for what is right," Michelle said on GMA.  "I play his lover and teacher. ...the role of Sandra Isadore and I'm very pleased."
