Should anyone ask you what “white” looks like you can remember this. It is possibly the “whitest” thing I have ever seen. Miss Arkansas becomes ‘Miss Effie White’ from Dreamgirls for the talent portion of the 1994 Miss America Pageant. She finished in the top ten but didn’t make the top four. I believe winner’s talent was a 4 minute mash-up called “The Wiz, A One Woman Show”
Shout out to Harper’s Other Dad for sharing this. This song, or more accurately, a song somewhat similar to this, is a favorite of mine on Show Tunes Night at the pub. Either he thought this would give me a giggle or he’s hinting my song stylings on this number after my second beer are not as original as I’d hoped. I prefer to think the former.
For historical context, Ice Ice Baby was released 3 years earlier. “Word!”
