Sathiyyah Parks-BarrettShe is so pretty. I loved her role in the movie. Especially the "Lorrell loves Jimmy" song.

Now if only the "mainstream" media would have mentioned/would mention Ms. Rose as being part of the Golden Globe winning movie, "Dream Girls," on some scale remotely similar to the actress's part which "helped" contribute to the success of the movie.
I suppose, to some, that she just simply didn’t/doesn’t have the “star power” that her co-stars have.
She still should have been part of the promotional/marketing bonanza that many of us were bombarded with, along with Hudson and Knowles.
Oh well, if it’s not stopping her check from being deposited …

I had the pleasure of seeing you sing a Regina Bell song in Perry-Paige auditorium, in 1990! You ripped it that night too. I am proud of you and proud to be a fellow alum of Florida A & M University. Keep rising to the top!
