Broadway.tv’s 9 on Nine Series
We think Stacy (Fergie) Ferguson is great. No, not because she called NetworkGlobal’s CEO cute, but rather because she is an amazing singer and actress.
Ferguson has had a very successful career in music. Now she is also making appearances in Hollywood productions as well. In Nine Ferguson plays the sexy and sensual Saraghina. Maury Yeston, writer of the Broadway production of Nine says that Ferguson almost steals the entire movie version of Nine with her performance.
Ferguson says that she anticipated being in Nine to be a lot more intimidating. Nine stars Nicole Kidman, Penelope Cruz, Judi Dench and Daniel Day-Lewis, to just name a few. With a lineup like that, Ferguson says that she expected Hollywood attitudes. However, she says that making Nine was exactly the opposite, with the cast getting together and mingling like old friends.
One reason we admire Ferguson is because she stand for something. The Black Eyed Peas (and Ferguson as a solo artist) write lyrics and participate in events to get young people motivated in making positive change. We asked Ferguson why standing for something as an artist has been so important to her.
