I hesitated in posting this. If I’m going to blog about songs and music as a gay man then mentioning Dreamgirls is neither daring nor original. All the same, this recording does have TWO incredible singers in an almost laughable duet. So there. Laughter and Singing! Stay tuned for Sex next week!
Do yourself a favor, if you aren’t interested in watching the whole thing, Skip ahead to 5:14. I cannot stop smiling at the polite silence between Hudson’s riff and Holiday’s riff. (Holiday’s riff alone- my god!) This may be the most soul I’ve ever scene in one place. In the future I’ll be more original.
