Heart to Yours is the first solo album by American singer Michelle Williams. Released on April 16, 2002, by Sanctuary and Columbia Records it became the first solo release of any Destiny's Child member. Production of the album began in 2001, with Williams working with an array of producers, including her brother Erron Williams (who produced the title track), HR Crump and Warryn Campbell. Heart to Yours is primarily an urban contemporary gospel album, however it heavily incorporates elements of many other styles and genres such as; neo-soul, inspirational, R&B and even rock music. The album's lyrical content and subject matter is also diverse and ranges from songs that glorify and praise God to tributes dedicated to the victims of the September 11, 2001 attacks in the United States, which encourage those suffering in the aftermath of the attacks that the "sun will shine again".
Receiving generally positive reviews from critics, Heart to Yours peaked at number one on the US Billboard Gospel Albums chart with nearly 20,000 copies sold in one week, eventually becoming 2002's biggest selling album of the that genre in the U.S, selling over 203,000 copies. The album was also a success on another Billboard component chart, the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart, where it peaked within the top 20 at number seventeen. However, the album failed to make as big of an impact on the US Billboard 200 as the debuts of Williams' bandmates, peaking at a moderate firty-seven. The album won Williams an award for "Best Gospel Act" at the 2002 MOBO Awards and its lead single "Heard A Word" was featured on the platinum-certified WOW Gospel 2003 compilation album.
