Angela Bassett is Hollywood royalty! The beautiful star of the new holiday film, Black Nativity sat down with Cherise Nicole (CNikky) for a candid interview about the film, her children and using her singing voice for the first time! Angela is known for the iconic characters she portrays, like Tina Turner, Voletta Wallace, Katherine Jackson, Betty Shabazz and who could forget her fiery character in Waiting to Exhale! We had a little fun with Angela and we got her to sing a few lines from most of those movies!
But, Black Nativity is not the only project Angela is working on….American Horror Story: The Coven is taking television by storm! Angela is the fierce Black with who wreaks havoc on Jessica Lange and Kathy Bates (the rival witches). She spoke to us about working alongside those iconic actresses and having chemistry with a minataur! But, before we left we had to get the low down on the new Waiting To Exhale and how she learned to overcome feeling like she was not as smart as her classmates growing up.
Black Nativity Is In Theaters Now & American Horror Story: The Coven is on FX!
