An interesting re-issue is coming out on CD on January 13th:
Sheryl Lee Ralph is a very successful actress, singer and philanthropist who has appeared in many Broadway musicals, Hollywood films and television shows since the beginning of the 1980's. Ralph first came to prominence having created the role of Deena Jones in the incredibly successful and award winning Broadway musical Dreamgirls for which she was nominated as Best Actress at the 1982 Tony Awards. This role was recently reprised on the silver screen by Jennifer Hudson who won an Oscar for her efforts. Ralph has since secured both Tony and Drama Desk best Actress awards for her performances in subsequent Broadway shows.
As a result of the success of Dreamgirls Ralph ventured into the recording studio in 1984 to provide us with her acclaimed debut album In The Evening. Produced by Trevor Lawrence (I'm So Excited) , In The Evening immediately struck a chord with the U.S. music buying public who helped the title track and lead single peak at #6 on the Billboard Dance charts.
