The big screen revival of stage-play ‘Dreamgirls’ took the movie and music arena’s by wig-snatching storm in 2006.
A potent potion of power anthems and stellar acting, the film earned the honor of being both a critical and commercial success;. Success rewarded amply during the 2007 award season – with the movie winning Best Motion Picture Musical at the Golden Globes and Jennifer Hudson historically bagging Best Supporting Actress at the 80th Annual Academy Awards a month later.
The night of the latter saw Hudson, along with fellow “Dreamettes” Beyonce and Anika Noni Rose serve up a three-song extravaganza which, much like the movie, is a classic.
Here’s hoping the similarly-themed ‘Sparkle’ (starring Whitney Houston) delivers such goods when it arrives in theatres this August.
