Sheryl Lee Ralph

You know Sheryl! One of the original Dreamgirls? Lauryn Hill’s mother in Sister Act 2: Back in the Habit? MOESHA‘s step-mother? Well, the actress and singer lived a lot of her life going back and forth between Mandeville, Jamaica and Long Island, N.Y. thanks to her American father and Jamaican mother. As an adult, Ralph founded the Jamerican Film & Music Festival. Sistah-girl is even in the “Jamaican Hall of Fame!” Well, according to www.Jamaicans.com that is. And it does actually make sense that she would be of Jamaican background, because if you ever watched Moesha like that, she used to break out in patois at random moments. Good to know though!
