Brandy’s “Cinderella”

Before Tiana, there was Brandy as Cinderella. In a way, Brandy was a real-life Cinderella. She became famous after her debut album became a success in the mid-1990s.

She was marketed as being Black America’s sweetheart and a role model for Black girls.

She starred in the re-telling of Cinderella — bringing both her acting chops, which she developed from starring on “Thea” and “Moesha,” and her singing skills as well.

Also, she lived out her dream of working with her role model and mentor Whitney Houston as her fairy godmother.

Now how cool is that?!
