Jennifer Holliday Offers Jan. 24 Performance and CD Signing at Barnes & Noble
By Michael Gioia
Tony Award-winning Dreamgirls star Jennifer Holliday, recently seen in a five-concert engagement at 54 Below, appears at Barnes & Noble on the Upper East Side Jan. 24.
Holliday celebrates the release of "The Song Is You," her first solo album in 23 years, which hit shelves Jan. 21.
The Barnes & Noble event, featuring a conversation with Tom Santopietro, begins at 7 PM at 150 East 86th Street.
A native of Houston, 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."
