ATTENTION!!

Okay. I tried linking to g_e_o_r_g_e's LJ for this, but I decided it merited posting here. I'm not much on showtunes and such, but this is different.

First, here's a clip of the 1982 Tony awards when part of the Dreamgirls cast performed onstage, including Jennifer Holliday doing "And I Am Telling You I'm Not Going". I love hearing a big ol' black girl hollering, so I love that song.



Now for the ass-kicker. Apparently there is a reality show called America's Got Talent or some such. I don't watch it, because I don't watch a whole lot of TV anyway. This clip though kind of knocked me on my ass. It's a little red haired, lily white 11 year old girl belting out the same song. She rocks BALLS!!
