After Marilyn, Jimmy James Finds His Own Voice (Plus Some More)
Initially famous for his spot-on tribute to Marilyn Monroe, an impersonation he did for 17 years, Jimmy James has blossomed into a unique and versatile performer that takes impersonating to another level. He acts and sings like our favorite icons of screen and stage: Cher, Billie Holiday, Diana Ross, Eartha Kitt, Tina Turner, Stevie Nicks.... you never know whose voice he will be mimicking. But, the great thing is that uses his own voice, showcased in his Billboard-charting 2006 hit "Fashionista."
As a young boy in San Antonio, Texas, James never thought he would get the chance to become an actor or have a singing career.
As an actress, BeBe was introduced to film with a lead role in the independent film "Under One Sun" with her character dealing with religious, racial and gender issues. Additionally, she appeared in the campy musical "Devious, Inc" (Australian Film Festival, San Francisco Short Film Fest) also adding additional vocals to the musical soundtrack. Both of these performances led to her selection for a lead role in Aisha Media’s next short film series, "Con-tin.u.um" to be released in 2012.
