At the Soul Train Awards last month, the three time Grammy nominated Angie Stone revealed she is one of the latest divas with a biopic in the works.
TV has already captured a little of Stone’s life when she starred on TV One’s R&B Divas season two. The biopic will focus not only on Stone’s life and career but also her time with the girl group out of South Carolina, The Sequence, which was signed to the Sugar Hill label in the late 70’s and early 80’s. The Sequence was discovered after by the Sugarhill Gang and Sylvia Robinson. Stone is said to believe that the group is often overlooked for being the first to combine rapping and singing.
While no time frame or information on which network will release the biopic was given, Stone says it will be a miniseries, as she has a great deal to share. While it was not stated, we are hoping the series goes into detail about Stone’s relationship with Grammy award winnner D’Angelo. Who else is looking forward to seeing the series when it airs?
