Kelly Rowland reveals details of her scary
boating experience which took place at Provincetown, Massachusetts. At that time, a boat which carried the singer and her friends got lost in five-foot waves during a whale- watching trip. Rowland admitted that during the July 22 incident she was
scared for her life and prayed hard to be rescued from the boat.
“I remember thinking to myself, ‘Lord, please don’t let this boat capsize.’ Please let us get to shore in one safe, sound piece. I just want to see tomorrow,” Rowland told PEOPLE at the Television Critics Association meeting in Beverly Hills.
Rowland added that at that time she and other passengers saw “no more shore, no more land, we’re seeing no more of the buoys, no more of the boats passing by – it’s just in the middle of nowhere, so we realized that we’re lost.” The boat’s passengers tried to get help, but their
cellphones received no signal. “I was like, ‘Please, Lord, give me two bars.’ He gave me two bars and we contacted some folks that were on land and they helped us,” the founding member of Destiny’s Child recalled the incident.
The authorities sent a towboat to help them, but their journey to the shore was a challenging one, because “the waves coming in were like 5 to 10 feet high and the boat was only a 27-foot boat and it felt like forever to get back to shore.”The X Factor (US)” judge said with a laugh that she did not want to get on a boat “for a long time – a very long time.”
