Holliday had not been offered a cameo role in the film and, feeling snubbed, had repeatedly expressed displeasure with the movie in the media. (Another original Dreamgirls cast member, Loretta Devine, did have a cameo in the film.) More recently, it became possible to see Holliday in a YouTube video, singing a duet with Hudson.

Her second marriage, which began on March 21, 1993 and ended in 1994, was to Rev. Andre Woods, a minister in Detroit. Jet magazine covered the marriage in their April 19, 1993 issue. Though Woods was a charismatic Detroit preacher, she subsequently said that even so, he was a player who also ran through her money. Still, Holliday was devastated when, in 1994, that marriage, too, ended, just four months after her mother died of cancer. “It was like experiencing two deaths at the same time,” she remembered. “The grief was overwhelming.”

1991

Holliday has been married twice. In March 1991, just two months after she met keyboardist Billy Meadows in a nightclub where she was singing, they married. “He had a great sense of humor and he made me laugh all the time,” Holliday says of her first husband. “I had been feeling bad for so long, I wanted to laugh.” But in December 1991, just nine months later, they divorced; the marriage, according to Holliday, “ran out of steam.” She explained of Meadows: “We just didn’t know each other well enough.”

1990

In the 1990s, Holliday lost a substantial amount of weight and talked about her health struggles with depression during promotional interviews.

Later, she returned to collaborate with Simon and Vandross on “Still Waters Run Deep,” followed by an Aretha Franklin arrangement of “Bridge Over Troubled Water,” with the finale consisting of all the participants joining in “Gone at Last”, followed by “Amazing Grace”.

1982

Among the acclaim was Holliday’s sweep of awards in 1982, including the Tony Award for Best Leading Actress in a Musical, a Grammy Award for her recorded version of the song, and Drama Desk and Theater World awards for her acting performance. Holliday also performed in the touring company of Sing, Mahalia, Sing in 1985. In 1998, Holliday was featured on the album, My Favorite Broadway Ladies as one of “The Queens of Broadway.”

Holliday’s version of the song “And I Am Telling You I’m Not Going” made her a star on Broadway and catapulted her to national stardom. In 1982, a pop version of the song was released as a single. The song became successful, peaking at number-one on the Billboard R&B chart, and number 22 on the Billboard Hot 100. She continued to have success as a recording artist through the rest of the decade. Her follow-up song, “I Am Love”, became another hit in 1983. Holliday’s later R&B hits included “Hard Time For Lovers” (1985), “No Frills Love” (1985), “I’m On Your Side” (1991) and “A Woman’s Got the Power” (2000). “A Woman’s Got the Power” charted at #7 in summer of 1999. However, it re-charted the following year, peaking at #1. She continued to appear on the charts throughout the 1990s, but never had the same level of success she had in the 1980s. Holliday was a featured vocalist on the #1 single “I Want to Know What Love Is” by Foreigner in 1985. A number of her songs became hits on the US Dance charts as well.
