Jennifer Holliday shot from obscurity to stardom in 1981 when she originated the role of Effi in the Broadway musical Dreamgirls and introduced the song "And I Am Telling You I'm Not Going." Holliday quickly earned a reputation as one of the finest vocalists of her generation, but after focusing her talents on gospel music in 1995 with the album On & On, she retired from the recording studio. With 2014's The Song Is You, Holliday makes her long-awaited return to pop music, lending her rich voice and passionate vocal style to a romantic set of standards and R&B classics. The Song Is You includes the selections "At Last," "Nobody Does It Better," "The Look of Love," "Love Me by Name," and many more.
