Kelly Rowland has teamed up with BET for a new docuseries called Chasing Destiny, which premiered last night.  Rowland is on a mission to find the next big girl group in the ten-part project.

Rowland says she was inspired to do this project because of the lack of girl groups there are currently.  The search for rising stars takes place in New York, Atlanta, and Los Angeles.  Veteran choreographer Frank Gatson also joins Rowland in the search.

Rowland says that she doesn’t want to force a certain look or sound upon the group, but rather wants that to come naturally.  She also said she teaches the girls about sexism within the music industry.  Rowland states, “We do a whole bunch of different exercises with the girls on the show where we really teach them about knowing yourself and respecting yourself as a woman and putting talent first.  We teach them about saying no and (identifying) what you feel comfortable with (and) what you don’t feel comfortable with.”

Rowland has confirmed that ladies from other former girl groups will make an appearance at some point, but so far Beyoncé and Michelle Williams are not expected to make an appearance.  Chasing Destiny airs on Tuesdays at 10:30PM ET on BET.  You can watch Rowland speak on the docuseries and read more on the story here.
