Rock Father Musicbot 6000 here with a press release from actress Valarie Pettiford, who will release a new collection of original lullabies on September 18...
Valarie Pettiford is a rare breed, a tried-and-true triple threat. From the stages of Broadway to the soundstages of Hollywood, she has charmed audiences with her performances. A Fosse-trained dancer, Pettiford was nominated for her work in the musical revue, Fosse, which paid homage to her mentor. As an actor, she has created characters for which fans still recognize her, such as Big Dee Dee Thorne on the hit sitcom, Half and Half, and Aunt Geneva, whose rehearsal dinner musical number nearly stole Jumping the Broom from co-stars Angela Bassett, Loretta Devine and Paula Patton. For those who have had the pleasure of hearing Valarie Pettiford sing, whether in a musical or one of her women cabaret shows, it is her smooth, decadent and resplendent voice that they remember.
