The Tony-nominated musical "The Color Purple" comes to the Kentucky Center.

The show will run through August 10th.

Nominated for eleven Tony Awards, including Best Musical, "The Color Purple" opened on December 1, 2006 at the Broadway Theatre where it ran for over two record-breaking years.

It is based on the classic Pulitzer Prize-winning novel by Alice Walker and the moving film by Steven Spielberg.

Latonya Holmes is one of the stars of the show.  She just released her debut CD entitled Love Me Just For Me, which is available online.

She executive produced the project, co-wrote six of the seven all-original selections, co-arranged and co produced all the lead and background vocals.
