A Michelle Williams fan recently had the unbelievable opportunity to record a song that she had written with her idol.
But when they got together in an NYC recording studio, it was the Destiny’s Child star who seemed to be more blown away by 15-year-old Sam Campbell than vice versa.
“Sam’s song is really good!,” the former Destiny’s Child star gushed to OK! after reading the lyrics to “Make It Last.” “I wasn’t writing like that at the age of 15.”
“I have to step my game up, for real!” Michelle laughed, sitting down at a piano to rehearse the love song penned by the teenager from Hobart, N.Y.
But there was plenty of adulation for Sam too. “What I love most about Michelle is her voice,” she told OK!. “I loved Destiny’s Child, and her songs were really amazing.”
The meeting had been set up for Sam, who suffers from Chiari Malformation (a structural defect in the cerebellum part of the brain that can cause muscle weakness and vision problems), by the Garden of Dreams Foundation and the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
After they had recorded the song together, Michelle made Sam’s day even more special by surprising her with a home karaoke machine and tickets to the musical Chicago on Broadway (in which Michelle will be starring as Roxy Hart, starting in February).
The Garden of Dreams Foundation is a non-profit charity that works with all areas of Madison Square Garden to make dreams come true for children in the New York metropolitan area.
