The artist took home the best original song Oscar for her track “Fight For You” from ‘Judas and the Black Messiah.’
H.E.R. — the Oscar-winning singer-songwriter behind hits like “Best Part” and “Focus” — is in final negotiations to make her feature film acting debut in The Color Purple movie musical.
Warner Bros. is behind the feature adaptation of the Tony-winning Broadway musical, itself an adaptation of the Pulitzer Prize-winning 1982 novel by Alice Walker, on which the Oscar-nominated Steven Spielberg-directed 1985 movie was based.
The story centers on a woman named Celie Harris and tracks her life-long struggles as an African American woman living in the South during the early 1900s.
H.E.R. will play Squeak, who, in the musical, goes from a juke joint waitress to an aspiring singer. (Rae Dawn Chong played the role in the original Spielberg feature.)
