Looking forward to the next big thing from Siddeeqah (Sid) Powell
7 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It is 2013 and Somebody's Child is still very popular. I would like to wish Lynn Whitefield good luck in receiving the EMMY PRIME TIME NOMINATION FOR BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESS IN SOMEBODY'S CHILD. Siddeeqah Powell is a very talented, creative and relevant writer, Somebody's Child is just the beginning of a very promising career. I hope Sid will continue to be inspired and inspire others, and always give back to the next generation of writers. We are looking for great things from Sid, I am sure the remaining months of 2013 and beyond, Sid will share her many writing talents, with her TV audience and the Big Screen as well. There is a desire and need especially in the African American Community for positive, up lifting images and the need to celebrate those in our community who are making a positive contribution. We are waiting for your next big thing Sid so keep us posted on all social media outlets. We will continue to support your uplifting Screen Plays and feature films. Thank you for "Somebody's Child" and your 2 Stage Plays, "What Would You Do For Love" and "Love Will Find A Way" they were both excellent, great cast and great writing. God Bless and keep up the great work.
