She is one of the most successful singer turned actress and producer without a flop to her name.
She is a great Actress she, and is very attractive. She was Chris Rock love interest in the Head Of State.
One of the true "original black actresses". The FIRST African-American to win an Oscar.
Had one of the great comebacks of all-time when black journalists criticized her for playing maids. "I'd rather play a maid than be one, " said Hattie.
Very pretty in Neil Simon's California Suite. Hope to meet her some day.
I'm 25 yrs old and most would be surprised I even know who this woman is, but she's one of my favorites... Sparkle is my favorite movies. I still watch clips of this woman on YouTube lol
I really wished she had gotten more significant parts in movies. She really has acting chops. She should have been pushed long before someone like Halle Berry :-/
drop dead gorgeous, fierce yet with a dose of simplicity and great charm on the stage, an immense strength shining from somewhere within... but when her mouth opens and her voice takes flight, oh man, nobody can sing and act Aida like she does. Beyonce doesn't stand a chance.

Brazilian actress who became the first black actress to appear as a main character in a telenovela (soap) on Brazilian television.
Kady, My wife and kids, Sure she's only a child actress but she's an extremely natural talent and will no doubt go on to be a very good adult actress.
Brazilian television actress. She was discovered on the streets of Salvador and became a model.
She's the brilliant actress from Lie To Me, Touye Pwen, and Champion Road 1 & 2. Not only is she beautiful, but she's uber talented... definitely leading lady material. Sexy, intelligent, powerful, and an action star. What more can I say?
Loved her in the T.V. Series Fame, as Lydia Grant. Great actress and dancer.
