Singer Jennifer Hudson made her debut into film in "Dreamgirls" with singer Beyonce in 2006. 

Since then she's played in several films including "The Secret Life of Bees" alongside Alicia Keys, "Winnie Mandela" as Winnie with Terrence Howard as her husband Nelson Mandela. She also played in the musical "Black Nativity".


Coming up for Miss Hudson is a new role in the revival Broadway "The Color Purple". The former American Idol contestant will be playing Suge Avery in the musical.


In the movie "The Color Purple" Suge was played by Margaret Avery and Elisabeth Withers-Mendes played her in the original Broadway production.


The new production will be in London where it ran at the Menier Chocolate Factory in 2013. Director John Doyle, whose productions of Sweeney Todd and Company had actors playing instruments, made cuts to The Color Purple for the London production, making it more intimate, according to Eurweb.com.


A close source says that the production is exploring bringing Cynthia Erivo, who won critical praise playing Celie in London, to reprise her role.

In 2007 Fantasia played the role of  Celie in the "The Color Purple" Broadway!

How do you think Jennifer Hudson will do playing Suge Avery?
