Today a lucky JMG reader will win a deluxe Dreamgirls DVD package and a collectible Playbill from the premiere screening, courtesy of Paramount Pictures, as they promote the DVD's May 1st release. Using a highly scientific entirely random selection process (asking my mom to pick a number), a commenter on this post will be chosen and notified by email Wednesday.
Adding spice to the promotion, Paramount is staging a "Live The Dream" contest, inviting the public to submit their own a cappella video of themselves singing a song from the Dreamgirls soundtrack. The videos will be reviewed by Dreamgirls director/writer Bill Condon and producer Laurence Mark, with the winner receiving a $5000 shopping spree. There have been a handful of videos already submitted and the one below is not too shabby, but I'm hoping that there's a JMG reader out there than can top her. C'mon, boys. You know you've been singing that song in the shower for years. I'll be highly tempted to post any reader videos here, so be warned.
