Dreamgirls is coming to the Ellington Theatre in Washington DC this December, with a very special performance by Jennifer Holliday for a special arts school.
Jennifer started her career on Broadway in the original production of the musical Dreamgirls in 1981 as Effie Melody White, and stayed in the role for four years. Her debut single – the Grammy Award-winning And I Am Telling You I’m Not Going from the show – was a smash hit, peaking at number 1 on the Billboard R&B singles chart.
Jennifer will perform in December as part of the Duke Ellington School of the Arts’ season of Dreamgirls, which runs from December 3-18. The Gala night will be held on December 9, and will raise money for the school’s mission to take ordinary urban kids with talent and turn them into both academic and artistic successes.
