I think it is important that we realize Black History is being made every day. Also, I am mesmerized by Cynthia Erivo. The last movie I watched in a theater before the pandemic, was Harriet. It may have been the best movie I have ever seen. Right now, I am playing the Youtube video that she sang at the Oscars in 2020. I am feeling all the feelings I felt during that movie. Since I saw her in Harriet, I have been a huge fan. She is a spectacular person.
She seems really thoughtful in the choices that she makes. She is one Oscar away from being an EGOT. I was VERY angry that she didn’t get her Oscar and it went to Elton John instead. In fact, have we even seen our Oscar reporter Erica since then? She wanted Elton John to win and he did. Even typing this right now I am pissed about that.
And yes, I know she is British. Black History is not just about Americans. She is a phenomenal woman. She will be talked about long after she passes. I just found out that there is an Aretha Franklin movie on the National Geographic channel where she plays Aretha and does all of her own singing that I am looking forward to seeing.
Right now, Banjo and I are having a quiet day. I never even turned the sun on for him. ( My house has all blackout curtains.) Not pretty but I keep odd hours. So we are just cuddled up in our cocoon. Actually he just went back to his bed and I’m probably gong to lay down for a bit myself. I hope I don’t oversleep whatever I am supposed to be recapping tonight.
I hope y’all enjoy this one, I don’t know why she is not the most famous person on earth. I can’t say enough kind things about her. She’s a trailblazer for sure.
Her Tony Award winning performance. Just the way she walks… She is amazing. And continues to make history every day.
