Poor little Jennifer


"DREAMGIRLS is a fascinating look inside the 60’s music industry. Jennifer Holliday reprises her Tony Award-winning role as Effie, the troubled star of a legendary female singing group in Michael Bennett’s dazzling, highly-charged musical about the cost of fame. Filled with showbiz glitz and glamour, romance and heartbreak, the musical features songs such as “Dreamgirls,” “I am Changing,” “I Miss You Old Friend” and Effie’s signature song, “And I’m telling You I’m Not Going.” - taken from the National Black Arts Festival website


Yes the 47yo has been is going to play an 18 - mid 20yo this July at the National Black Arts Festival... discuss amongst yourselves For more click here.

Wow...snippy queen with a high-speed internet connection turned critic - labeling folks "has beens" and such... it amazes me how the internet has given a global platform to people who are, in the final analysis, insignificant narcissists who really just need to shut up and work out THEIR issues. (And one from D.C. no less?!) Never forget that Jennifer Holliday has accomplished what you have not - Acclaim and celebrity in the REAL world, not this "virtual" arena. Maybe before you open up your mouth to talk about hardworking artists like Jennifer Holliday (or suck a dick, because being gay seems to be your only qualification for these sermonettes), you should try it out. In the REAL world. I'm out.

Tell me why after all these years????

Why is she going back to relive times past? She already obtain all the recongnition from the Dreamgirls that she's ever goin to get. People need to understand that you will never be on top all the TIME!! There is a time and season for everyone and everything. Jennifer season has come and gone playin "Effie". If she want to continue to do broadway on new projects then fine.. but to relive to the past I dont think so. It will be a major mistake on her part.

Perhaps not the best move for her career wise, but we all know that she feels a connection to the part. If someone has hired her to do it then all I can say is MORE POWER to her.

Now I will say Mister, you are being a little hard on Jennifer Holiday.

Do remember she still sings circles around Beyonce and JHud, please show a little more respect.

I don't want to sound like a hater, but in many of your posts you sound like a bitchy queen.
Much luv tho.

Since I didn't see Jennifer holiday play the role back in the 80s I think it would be cool to see her play it now, especially in a stage play setting.

Okay....
Let me put my 2 cents in.
1ST OF ALL I am Jennifer's Biggest fan..

She is a TONY* AND 2-TIME GRAMMY* WINNER SO IT IS NO ARGUEMENT THAT SHE IS A DIVA..

AND TO BE HONEST..OTHER THAN RACHELLE FERRELL...SHE CAN SING CIRCLES AROUND ANY LIVING FEMALE VOCALIST IN THE WORLD...YES I SAID IT...AND YOU KNOW I AM RIGHT

NOW AS FAR AS REVIVING EFFIE...I SAY DO WHAT EVER YOU HAVE TO DO TO EAT AND PAY YOUR BILLS...BUT BE AWARE OF THE RESULTS...JENNIFER ON A COUPLE OF OCCASIONS HAS SAID SHE HAS TRIED FOR YEARS TO ESCAPE EFFIE..BUT IF I COULD CHAT WITH JEN' I WOULD TELL HER STR8 OUT...JENNIFER THIS IS NOT THE WAY TO DITCH EFFIE...

I THINK JENNIFER SHOULD RETURN TO BROADWAY IN A NEW GOSPEL LACED ROLE OF SOME SORT OR MAYBE DO A ONE WOMAN SHOW..

SHE SHOULD ALSO SIGN TO A LABEL LIKE...BLUE NOTE..OR SHANAHACIE OR HIDDEN BEACH...WERE MANY R+B DIVAS ARE RE-SURFACING THESE DAYS

BOTTOM LINE I WISH I WAS JENNIFER'S AGENT BECAUSE TRUST ME SWEETIE I WOULD GET HER CAREER TOGETHER..NO-SHADE..LOL

I SURE WOULD'NT HAVE LET HER SING ON TOP OF A COLD ASS HOTEL ROOF LIKE SOME SECOND RATE DIVA.

TOGHETHER WE WOULD BURY "EFFIE MELODY WHITE" IN A SMALL GRAVE SIDE SERVICE AND START A NEW...CUZ IT IS 2007 NOT 1981...

NUFF SAID..Y'ALL
