Tony Award winner Tonya Pinkins, currently starring in Ford's Theatre's Black Pearl Sings!, can also be seen on the small screen in the Lifetime series "Army Wives."

Pinkins, of Jelly's Last Jam and Caroline, or Change fame, plays Viola Crawford, who manages The Hump Bar, a honky-tonk owned by Roxy LeBlanc. "Viola is a shrewd businesswoman," writer Deb Fordham told, "so when the singer they hired bails at the last minute, Viola takes to the stage herself rather than return everyone's cover charge."

Pinkins will sing two songs in the Oct. 4 episode of "Army Wives," which airs at 10 PM ET. The singing actress will perform the Gretchen Wilson hit, "Here For the Party," which was written by John Rich, Big Kenny and Wilson, and the Bonnie Raitt classic, "I Can't Make You Love Me," written by Mike Reid and Allen Shamblin.
