From her early days as a girl singing solos with the choir at Pleasant Grove Baptist
Church in Houston,TX to her years on the Broadway stage and beyond, the
inimitable voice of Jennifer Holliday has riveted the hearts of audiences from
around the world. She is a Broadway Legend in every sense of the term: her iconic
portrayal of Effie “Melody” White in the 1981 smash hit Dreamgirls will forever
be a template for delivering gut-wrenching, timeless performances, evidenced in

Ms. Holliday garnering a Grammy® Award for her performance of the show-

rendition of Duke Ellington’s classic, “Come Sunday.” From 1985 to 1992, she had
five Top 10 singles on the R&B and Dance Charts and her star continued to shine
brightly with collaborations and appearances with other megastars: Barbra
Streisand, Luther Vandross, David Foster, Paul Simon, Michael Jackson, Maurice
White and Foreigner, with whom she performed on a special version of “I Want To
Know What Love Is.”
In 2014, Ms. Holliday released her first album in two decades. “This Song Is You”

landing Ms. Holliday back in the Top 20 R&B charts with rave reviews.
