I thought I already loved Sherie Rene Scott as much as was humanly possible . I thought that there was no way I could be further enamored of her big voice, witty stage presence and all-around star quality. Then I saw this:
That girl is rocking a power ballad about the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles! She must have turned at least half the kids in the audience into show queens with that display of Broadway diva belting. And, let me tell you, it ain’t easy to hold the attention of a huge theater full of kids — particularly kids who came expecting Turtles kickboxing and instead got some be-wigged redhead singing a Pat Benetar B-side — but Ms. Scott can do it. Someone give this woman the Tony-winning role she deserves, already.
Now, if you think I’m in any way, shape or form mocking Ms. Scott by posting this “embarrassing” moment from her early career, well then you just don’t know me well enough. And you clearly don’t know that I once did this…
“Live!” performers unite. Rock on, Sherie.
