R+B superstars DESTINY'S CHILD stunned journalists at a press conference to promote their new album, by taking a break to pray.

A representative for the band, who are releasing DESTINY FULFILLED after a three year break, stopped proceedings midway through so the religious trio - Beyonce Knowles, Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams could "go and pray".

A source says, "It was a surreal moment. This guy just announced it was prayer time and the girls were escorted out of the hotel room.

"It totally messed up their schedule for the day. Surely they can pray when they're not working?"
