Broadway beauties Jennifer Hudson and Cynthia Erivo team up for a soul-stirring performance of the title track to the upcoming revival of “The Color Purple” musical. The ladies are starring in a revamped version of the show with Hudson making her stage debut as troubled juke joint singer, ‘Shug Avery.’ This is Erivo’s second time around as the show’s lead, Miss Celie, since starring in the Menier Chocolate Factory production in London.
Also appearing in the musical is “Orange is the New Black” star Danielle Brooks as ‘Sophia,’ Isaiah Johnson as ‘Mister,’ Joaquina Kalukango as ‘Nettie’ and Kyle Scatliffe as ‘Harpo.’ Check out the 4-minute clip below and prepare to be blown away by their roof raising vocals:
