Congratulations! Patti LaBelle & Brandy Land Major Roles In Popular TV Show
Brandy Norwood and the iconic Patti LaBelle are showing the world that they’re still in demand and not just because of their beautiful voices, but also because of their acting skills. It’s just been confirmed that the ladies are about to heat up our TV screens in a popular TV series. Check out the details below…
Patti and Brandy are STARS! As in, Lee Daniels’ hit Fox show, Star. They’ve just signed on to join the cast, alongside Queen Latifah, P. Diddy’s son (and Al B. Sure’s) son, Quincy Brown, and many others:
Via Deadline: Patti LaBelle and Brandy Norwood are the latest musical stars set for multi-episode arcs on Fox’s hit music drama series Star. LaBelle will play Carlotta Brown’s (Queen Latifah) tough but loving mother, Christine; and Norwood will play Carlotta’s younger sister, Cassie. Both characters will be introduced this spring.
There have also been many other popular names on the show, including Tyrese, Kelly Price, Gladys Knight, and the list goes on. So it’s gonna be cool to see the recurring roles that Patti and Brandy will play. If any of our fellow old schoolers aren’t familiar with Star, the show is centered around three singers who have some struggles in their lives and show covers some deep topics.
Patti hasn’t shared any news about joining the cast, but Brandy couldn’t wait to hop on Instagram and share the news in a video message to her fans. She’s hella excited, understandably so:
What Else Are Patti & Brandy Doing Now?
Star isn’t the only ‘dish’ Patti and Brandy have cooking in the kitchen. Patti is 73 years young and still killin’ it on stage. She also has a Christmas album, Home For the Holidays, dropping on November 24th:
And Patti’s pies and desserts are STILL poppin!’ Matter of fact, Whoopi Goldberg and her fellow View co-hosts had a bunch of Patti’s deserts the other day on the show, in celebration of Whoopi’s 62nd birthday. Happy b-day Whoopi:
Brandy is out here living life and doing what she loves- singing and performing constantly…
And of course, we can’t forget about her and her former Moesha cast mates’ epic reunion on The Real talk show recently:
Overall, it’s a beautiful thing to see Patti LaBelle still being able to do what she loves after 57 years in the music industry! It’s also wonderful that Brandy -whom we’ve watched transform from a child to a woman before our eyes- is still gracing stages and TV screens. Y’all know ‘the ex-child star curse’ is real, so it’s but Brandy has maintained her sanity and didn’t succumb to it.
Looking forward to seeing both talented ladies on Star in the spring. Will you be watching?
