Grammy Award winner Jennifer Holliday, best known for her Tony-winning performance as Effie White in the original Broadway staging of Henry Krieger and Tom Eyen's Dreamgirls, offers concerts at The Iridium in Manhattan Feb. 13-14.

A native of Houston, Jennifer Holliday made her professional New York theatre debut in 1980 in the revival of Your Arms Too Short to Box With God. That role led to her Tony-winning performance in Dreamgirls, and her rendition of that show's "And I Am Telling You I'm Not Going" earned the singer-actress her first Grammy Award. She has also appeared on Broadway in the revivals of Grease! and Chicago, and her television credits include "Ellen," "Touched By an Angel" and a recurring role on "Ally McBeal." Holliday earned another Grammy Award for her recording of Duke Ellington's "Come Sunday."
