"Dreamgirls" (1981), in which she first performed the song "And I Am Telling You I'm Not Going"
Did You Know?
Twenty years ago when I was in 'Dreamgirls,' I was always a joke because I was huge. I went out once to a birthday gathering for me, and the New York Post wrote that I had broken the chair because I was so big. Well, I didn't break the chair; it was just really wobbly. But the humiliation was terrible." "Even after I lost weight, I was still the same person.
"Dreamgirls" earned her not only a Tony, but Drama Desk and Theatre World Awards; she also won a Grammy Award for her recorded version of "And I Am Telling You I'm Not Going".
