shirley verrett

November 7, 2010

if you havent seen for colored girls and you dont want to have the experience spoiled when you do, please do not read this posting.

i wonder if tyler perry had shirley verrett in mind when he made the little operatic scene in for colored girls.

i had heard of her some time ago and planned on becoming more acquainted with her work.

sadly, i learned she died earlier this week, november 5th.

i wonder if he did have her in mind and i wonder if she saw the film.

that operatic scene surely made me think of her.
