Wow! I had to go see what the hype was all about on Dream Girls.
Gotta say Jennifer stole the entire movie. After her performance of "You're gonna love me", you had me, my family and the entire audience clapping and cheering. It was as though you were giving a live performance. Never have experienced that in my entire life going to the movies. You rock girl! I hope you win both the Golden Globe and Oscar. Best to ya,
