Queen Latifah is the perfect person to play the part due to her deep roots in jazz and soul music. Cant wait til the movie comes out.

    I’m a 14 year old student from Long Island,NY that is African American female who is studious,energetic,determined,hardworking and funny. The reason I’m attracted to acting is because my Aunt used to tell me before she passed away I would be a good actress and I promise her I’ll try.

    Hi, my name is Natosha Humphrey, and I am an aspiring actress. I would love to be a part of this film. I love singing and acting, and I’m trying to get my foot in the door. I have been in several plays and have been a film extra. It’s hard to find acting jobs living in Mississippi with a single mom who’s a teacher with three kids, so knowing that this is in Louisiana whether for only part of the time or for the whole project is amazing. I’d really appreciate your consideration, whether for a role or as an extra. Thank you so much for your time. With or without me, good luck!
