I love Actress Sheryl Lee Ralph! She is such an inspiration plus I love her role on Abbotts Elementary, she is one of my favorites on the tv show! Last night at the 74th Annual Primetime Emmy Award show, she took home the Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actress In A Comedy Series! She plays “Barbara Howard” on the hit tv show and it was the veteran actress first-ever Emmy win, so happy for her!
For her acceptance speech she hit the stage and belted out a song called, “Endangered Species” by Diana Reeves and I had no clue she had such a powerful voice! She later went on to say;
“To anyone who has ever, ever had a dream and thought your dream wasn’t, wouldn’t, couldn’t come true, I am here to tell you that this is what believing looks like,”. “This is what striving looks like. And don’t you ever, ever give up on you. Because if you get a Quinta Brunson in your corner, if you get a husband like mine in your corner, if you get children like mine in your corner, and if you get friends like everybody who voted for me, cheered for me, loved me … thank you, thank you!”
She has had a remarkable career over the years and I remember her for being in Dreamgirls, she played Deena Jones in the original cast. It was one of my favorite Broadway shows! She was very memorable in the show! Congrats to Sheryl and come inside to see more pics and that designer velvet gown she was wearing plus her amazing acceptance speech!
