Gabrielle (in Reem Acra) portrays Muddy Waters’s wife Geneva in the film. Gabrielle talked to USA Today about working with Beyonce: “I like Beyoncé because the check cleared, and if it didn’t, I’d know where to find her,” joked Union, dressed in navy blue Reem Acra. “She’s obviously incredibly talented. When you watch her transform into Etta James and really channel her and her pain and that journey, it’s powerful. As a boss and as a fellow actress, she’s the bomb.”
Columbus Short portrays Little Walter. Remember him from “Stomp The Yard“?!
Tina Knowles (Beyonce’s mom) took a snapshot with soul legend Etta James.
The film opens on December 5th. Check out the trailer below.
