The role for Effie in Dreamgirls slated to be released in December has finally been cast. A nation wide search for the perfect Effie White has finally been found. Casting calls for this much sought after role has been held in numerous cities, calling for all body types and a powerful voice. After months of auditions, there emerged ONE winner. The lucky female to snag the ever so prominent role is none other than Chicago native Jennifer "Boomie" Hudson(who's early departure from American Idol season 3 sparked a huge controversy and sparked rumors of racism).
After countless casting calls, Jennifer emerged as the victor even beating out American Idol winner/alum Fantasia Barrino.
Jennifer is currently in Los Angeles rehearsing for the role. ELTON JOHN must be pleased at this decision.
difendimi per sempre amore mio, almeno tu
in questi angoli del mondo agonizzante di bugie
rimane la ferita, rimane la mia vita
difendimi per sempre in questo mondo in tempesta
in cui l'amore è il solo grido di protesta di noi uomini
riesco a non arrendermi se ci sei tu a difendermi
