Cynthia Erivo Shares Her Epic 'Color Purple' Performance After Movie Version is Confirmed

Cynthia Erivo is looking back at her Tony-winning work in the Broadway musical The Color Purple, just a few weeks after it was confirmed a movie version will be made!

The Oscar-nominated actress won a Tony, an Emmy, and a Grammy for her work as Celie in the musical and we sure hope to see her reprise her role in the movie.

If Cynthia does play Celie in the film, she could become the first person to ever win an EGOT from the same role.

“Goodness, I miss this 🥺 #proudartsworker,” Cynthia captioned a video of herself singing the big 11 o’clock number, “I’m Here.”

So many celebrities have commented on the video. Beanie Feldstein said, “I think about you singing this song at least once a day.” Halle Berry wrote, “just …dead! 🔥❤️.” Her co-star Danielle Brooks said, “I miss this too cue tears.”

Kristin Chenoweth commented, “Probably the top five greatest single performances I’ve ever seen. Easily.” This Is UsChrissy Metz said, “I was changed by your performance, Cynthia.

'The Color Purple' Musical to Become a Movie & Cynthia Erivo Could Make History if She Plays Celie!

The Broadway musical The Color Purple is being turned into a movie and a director has been selected!

Blitz Bazawule, who co-directed Beyonce‘s Black Is King visual album for Disney+, is going to helm the upcoming feature for Warner Bros.

Oprah Winfrey, Steven Spielberg, Scott Sanders, and Quincy Jones are producing the movie. In a statement to Deadline, Oprah said, “We, were all blown away by Blitz’s unique vision as a director and look forward to seeing how he brings the next evolution of this beloved story to life.”

Casting has not yet been announced for the movie, but Cynthia Erivo seems to be a shoo-in for the role of Celie. She played the role in the recent Broadway revival, which launched her career.

Cynthia could make movie history if she plays Celie in the film version. She won a Tony, an Emmy, and a Grammy for her work in the Broadway musical. If she also wins an Oscar for the role, she’d be the first person to win an EGOT from the same role. Earlier this year, she received two Oscar nominations for her work in the movie Harriet.

Ben Platt also has the chance to achieve this feat as he won the same awards for his work in Dear Evan Hansen. He’s rumored to play the role in the upcoming movie version.

Watch an incredible performance that Cynthia gave earlier this summer for a Fourth of July special.
