Jennifer Holliday was always meant to touch the world. From her early days as a girl singing solos with the choir at Pleasant Grove Baptist Church in Houston,TX to her years on the Broadway stage and beyond, her inimitable voice has riveted the hearts of audiences from around the world. A Broadway Legend in every sense of the term, her professional journey began one fateful Sunday in Houston while singing in her church choir when Ms. Holliday was discovered by dancer Jamie Patterson, who was touring in the national company of A Chorus Line. Wowed by her talent, Patterson bought the 17-year-old a plane ticket to New York City and arranged for her to have her first Broadway audition. During that audition, she sang her favorite gospel hymn, a song that would be a proven testimony over again for years to come: “God Will Take Care of You.” She was hired that day by the show’s creator and director, Vinette Carroll, and made her Broadway debut in 1980 at age 19 in the revival of Your Arms Are Too Short To Box With God.

"Your performance at the Austin Omni at Southpark Hotel moved and inspired attendees, who were then delighted when you offered to sign autographs and take photos. The hotel lobby was buzzing with the excitement from fans. Nearly a half hour later, you graciously offered to sign autographs at 5:00 p.m. so that people could attend the workshops...
