Tony Award and Grammy Award Winner
Best known for Dreamgirls, The Color Purple and Chicago
Holliday first reached prominence on stage in the play Your Arm’s Too Short To Box With God, but it was her tragic and triumphant role in the musical Dreamgirls and her Act One show-stopping performance of the ballad “And I’m Telling You I’m Not Going” that made her a star. It led her to an unprecedented appearance on Saturday Night Live and a solo recording contract with Geffen Records. She went on to record various albums and became a dynamite Gospel artist. Since her gospel days, Holliday made headlines again in late 2006 when Dreamgirls was adapted for the big screen. Her most recent appearance was as Shug Avery in the Tony Award-winning revival of The Color Purple.
