Last week we got a peek of Kelly Rowland as Gladys Knight, and now we get to see singer Michelle Williams as Diana Ross in the upcoming BET series ‘American Soul.’
The network released a video clip of Williams shooting the fundraising scene for the United Negro College Fund, where she’s singing the Diana Ross signature song Reach Out And Touch.
The episode is being directed by the legendary Robert Townsend.
American Soul tells the story of the rise and fall of Don Cornelius, who created the dance show, “Soul Train,” against the backdrop of an unforgiving Hollywood in the 1970s.
The series premieres Tuesday, February 5th on BET.
