Faith Evans to play Florence Ballard in new biopic about the Supremes

R&B sultry songstress Faith Evans, confirmed that she has landed the role of Florence Ballard, (former Supreme). In a new biopic about Motown's most celebrated girl group, Faith will play the life of Ballard, who was at one point the voice of the Supremes, but was later put to the back-burner for Diana Ross, once the group became very popular

The Supremes led by Diana Ross, were amongst the most popular girl group of all time, who paved the way for so many that came after. Ballard eventually left the Supremes after much tension that occurred between Ballard, Dianna, and Berry Gordy (Motown's former CEO). It was rumored that the film Dreamgirls, was slated around Ballard's role in the Supremes. (Effie played by Oscar winner Jennifer Hudson), and how she was replaced for the ever more popular Dianna Ross. The Detroit native  suffered with weight issues, alcoholism and depression. Florence Ballard died in 1976 just 32 years old.

Faith Evans film credits includes 2000’s Turn It Up and 2003’s The Fighting Temptations.

Faith recently had a brush-in with the law where she was arrested an booked on DUI charges, but was later released. This new biopic may be the vehicle Evans need to get her life back on track. Faith's latest single Gone Already, has been burning up the R&B charts, and her new album is slated to be released in Nov. We wish Faith the best.
