Welcome to Retro Rewind, the TGJ original feature launched to celebrate TV and Film’s glorious past.
Today, we revisit 1999’s ‘Double Platinum‘ which starred Brandy and Diana Ross.
In it, Ross plays a gifted vocalist seeking stardom who abandons her infant daughter to move to New York City. What happens when the daughter (played by Brandy) grows up and meets her idol Olivia King?
For, she has no idea that Olivia and her mother are one and the same.
Brandy’s mother Sonja Norwood acted as one of the movie’s executive-producers via the Norwood Entertainment Group and joined her daughter to watch it become a ratings-rocking success when it impacted ABC on May 16th 1999.
