Frenchie Davis Keeps It Real
Frenchie Davis' career has been a prime example of how to overcome controversy and fight on to achieve your dreams. What dream is that? Frenchie has always envisioned herself with a singing career as both a performer in the theater and a recording star. One listen to that captivating voice and it would be hard to find one person to disagree that her voice would allow her to obtain her dreams. That is, if her talent was all she needed on the journey.
Ten years ago during the second season of reality competition TV show "American Idol," Frenchie discovered how some things can come back to haunt you when she revealed to show producers that she had once upon a time modeled topless. Her disclosure led to her dismissal from the show while she was amongst the show's twelve finalists' round. Yet despite the controversy, she landed a role in the Broadway cast of "RENT" shortly after being dismissed from "American Idol."
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.
