Bre’ly Evans & Tamela Mann Star in Sparkle Next Month

Plus size actresses Bre’ly Evans & Tamela Mann star in Sparkle Next Month

The movie Sparkle starring Jordin Sparks & the late Whitney Houston hits theaters on August 17th but those aren’t the only actresses that I’m excited to see. The film also stars Bre’ly Evans as Tune Ann and Tamela Mann as Sarah Waters. Both women are plus size actresses and talented singers.

Tamela Mann can be seen in Tyler Perry’s Meet The Browns and House Of Payne. She’s also appeared in several Tyler Perry films along with her husband David Mann.  Bre’ly Evans has been in several movies since 2008 but she’s recognized quite often for her role in Just Wright starring Queen Latifah and Common.

In the remake of the 1976 film which is set in the 1960s, three sisters form a girl group and soon become Motown sensations, but fame becomes a challenge as the close-knit family begins to fall apart.

Catch Bre’ly dancing in the video for the song Celebrate” performed by Jordin Sparks & Whitney Houston which appears on the Sparkle soundtrack.
