ONE TO WATCH: ACTRESS PATINA MILLER

**I originally wrote this in February and now I'm re-posting it again because Patina's star is on the rise. From what I heard come from Whoopi and Aretha Franklin is that she just may be in Aretha's biopic. Everyone slept on Tika Sumpter and now she's on everyone's radar.

If I find them, you'll read about them here, plus I love to spread the word about those who are traveling under everyone else's radar while the rest are so caught up on the top five females of the entertainment field. I present to you actress Patina Miller. Patina Miller plays Deloris Van Cartier (Whoopi's movie character) in the new Broadway version of Sister Act the Musical which hits Broadway on March /24/11.

Born in Pageland, SC., music has been a part of her life at an early age. Patina was also one of three finalist for the role of Effie in the movie Dream Girls. She was nominated for an Olivier Award for Best Actress in a Musical and won the Whatsonstage.com Theatregoers Choice Award for Best Actress in a Musical for her performance as Deloris Van Cartier in the West End production of Sister Act. Previously in New York she played Dionne in The Public Theater's 2008 production of Hair at the Dela Millercorte Theatre. Ms. Miller also appeared on the ABC daytime television program "All My Children." She holds a BFA in Musical Theatre from Carnegie Mellon University. {Source}

Talented, beautiful and accomplished! I can't wait to see what the future holds for this young woman and hopefully talent will out rule name recognition because she is definitely one to watch.
