watch Beyond The Lights (2014) online....The pressures of fame have superstar singer Noni on the edge, until she meets Kaz, a young cop who works to help her find the courage to develop her own voice and break free to become the artist she was meant to be.
Mermaids. Loved Winona Ryder in this! (sidenote:) At the time I saw this I had no idea that Cher was a singer, only knew her as a great actress, then she made an album, and I was like why is this woman trying to become a singer? lol.
"Dreamgirls" (dir. Bill Condon, 2006) --- Based on the Broadway musical by Tom Eyen, a trio of black female soul singers (played by Beyoncé Knowles, Jennifer Hudson, and Anika Noni Rose) cross over to the pop charts in the early 1960's. The story is loosely based on the life of Diana Ross from her days as a member of the Supremes, and also parallels Beyoncé's own career with Destiny's Child.
