Original Dreamgirls Jennifer Holliday and Sheryl Lee Ralph Reunited for Project Angel Food


Sheryl Lee Ralph, dynamic and talented as she is, reunited after 37 years with her “Dream girl” Broadway co-star, the equally stupendous Jennifer Holliday.  Diva Jennifer recently had the Hollywood Hills in rapt adoration listening to her glorious voice at Project Angel Food’s 3rd Annual Circle of Angels Garden Party at the stunning home of Tim Robinson and Bob Cohen.  The group prepares and delivers healthy meals to feed people impacted by serious illness and has a huge trove of celeb /Hollywood VIP supporters.

Sheryl was the vivacious auctioneer and cheekily commented to the well dressed crowd, “I love your shiny sunglasses-I can see myself in them, that’s why I love you all-you are my people!”  

Sheryl reminded everyone that it was “thirty seven years since “Dreamgirls” bowed on Broadway.” That prompted Jennifer to sing her signature “ Dreamgirl” songs:  “And I Am Telling You, I’m Not Going,” and “I Am Changing,” along with a gorgeous version of “The Way We Were.”  The crowd was truly in rapturous adoration.  Jennifer’s voice remains remarkable and needs to be heard way more than it have has been lately.  Somebody in power who is really smart should hitch their wagon to her star and bring her back in the showbiz spotlight where she belongs.
