Jennifer Holliday Sings Love Songs at May 10 Concert

News   Jennifer Holliday Sings Love Songs at May 10 Concert Tony Award winner Jennifer Holliday will offer an evening of love songs during her May 10 concert in Austin, Texas.

Holliday will perform at Austin’s Paramount Theatre in a special one-night only benefit performance for the Zachary Scott Theatre Center (ZACH). Backed by an eight-piece band, the former star of Dreamgirls will wrap her lush vocals around such tunes as “Always On My Mind,” “Come Sunday” and “Come Rain or Come Shine” as well as her signature tune, “And I Am Telling You I’m Not Going.” Holliday, who garnered a Tony Award for her work as Effie White in the original Broadway company of Dreamgirls, recently reprised that role for Atlanta's National Black Arts Festival. On Broadway she has also appeared in Your Arms Too Short to Box with God, Chicago and Grease!, and she recently starred Off-Broadway in Downhearted Blues—The Life and Music of Bessie Smith. Holliday, who appeared on several episodes of "Ally McBeal," is also a Grammy Award-winning recording artist.
