The new leading lady of The Phantom of The Opera on smashing down barriers and making history with her casting as the beloved opera soprano Christine Daaé in Andrew Lloyd Webber and Cameron Mackintosh’s revamped production, wearing her natural hair like a crown and celebrating the beautiful nuances of her black body. Plus, why she owes everything to her mother and grandmother. And why it took her rather a long time to shake off playing music icon Diana Ross after starring in Motown - The Musical.
