H.E.R. to Make Acting Debut in ‘The Color Purple’ Movie Musical (Exclusive)

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.)
