Soundtrack Q & A
Q: The Color Purple has always had a special meaning to me. I took my mother to see it because she never felt like going out much. Being the Christian woman that she was, she really enjoyed the gospel song "Maybe God Is Trying To Tell You Something." My mother passed away back in 1993 and I always think of her when I hear this song. Could you tell me who performed the vocals in the movie? Thanks! (from Gerald Peterson in Raeford, NC, USA)
A: T├íta Vega is the gospel singer you're inquiring about. She sang all of the character Shug Avery's vocals for the movie's soundtrack. She's pretty awesome. Check out her web site. (thanks to Me, GAadd more info
