D. Woods has been making her rounds on the big screen and the big stage.
The former Danity Kane singer, who appeared in MoNique’s latest film, Blackbird also had the opportunity to star alongside Kandi Burrus in her feature musical, A Mother’s Love, a production loosely based on Burruss’ life and relationship with her mother.
While on the red carpet for the premiere of Blackbird at the Pan African Film Festival, Woods talked with HipHollywood about her experience working on the production.
“It was a really great experience, especially working with the legends, Eddie Levert and Shirley Murdock,” she told us. “Kandi was such a great person to work with, great to look up to her and her entrepreneurship.”
She added, “We graduated from the same high school, but just to know that she was giving opportunities back. We actually went back to our high school and chose high school students who had little featured roles in the musical. We are just keeping it moving and passing the baton.”
A Mother’s Love, which ran in November of 2013, is being chronicled during this season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta.
