Jennifer Holliday was always meant to touch the world. From her early days as a girl singing solos with the choir at Pleasant Grove Baptist Church in Houston, TX to her years on the Broadway stage and beyond, her inimitable voice has riveted the hearts of audiences from around the world.

Wowed by her talent, Patterson bought the 17-year-old a plane ticket to New York City and arranged for her to have her first Broadway audition. During that audition, she sang her favorite gospel hymn, a song that would be a proven testimony over again for years to come: “God Will Take Care of You.” She was hired that day by the show's creator and director, Vinette Carroll, and made her Broadway debut in 1980 at age 19 in the revival of “Your Arms Are Too Short To Box With God”.

Ms. Holliday’s vocal prowess came to the attention of many theater luminaries and critics, most notably the renowned Broadway director and choreographer Michael Bennett, the creator of A Chorus Line.

The show would catapult Ms. Holliday from Broadway Baby to household name just a year later in the lead role as the iconic Effie “Melody” White in the 1981 smash hit Dreamgirls.
Ms. Holliday immortalized Effie, forever creating a template for delivering gut-wrenching, timeless performances, evidenced in her garnering a Grammy® Award for the performance of the show-stopping torch ballad “And I am Telling You, I'm Not Going" and a coveted Tony Award for Best Actor in a Musical for her role as Effie...
