Tamyra is the NEW Kimberley Locke!

Check out Miss Tamyra in this new ad campaign for H & M jeans:





INTRODUCING &DENIM - H&M'S NEW JEANS BRAND

&denim will be launched world-wide in September 2005, supported by a six minute film. The intention is to deliver a modern love story - from a new H&M angle. At the end of the film, the importance of fashion yields to the forces of true love. The soulful music and dance based drama takes place in the streets of New York City. It's current and exciting. Jennifer Holiday's And I Am Telling You I'm Not Going serves as the narrative that drives the story, together with When I First Saw You.

Both songs come from the musical Dreamgirls and are performed by Tamyra Gray and Mary J. Blige. Their expressive interpretations of the powerful lyrics tell the story perfectly. The &denim film is the result of a cooperation between H&M Red Room and director/photographer David LaChapelle. A national special advertising campaign will run exclusively in the September and October issues of Interview magazine as well as other regional publications throughout the country. The film will soon be aired at cinemas all over the world.


What's with TWO Tamyra stories in one week?

Clearly...this fall...everything's coming up Tamyra...Tamyra...Tamyra!

Idol 1 contestant Tamyra Gray is making her silver screen debut in "The Gospel," starring guest ANTM 4 judge Boris Kodjoe and the one and only Keshia Knight Pulliam!

"The Gospel" stars Boris Kodjoe as a hot R&B recording artist who’s at the top of his career, yet estranged from his family who are southern Christian leaders in his hometown church. When Kodjoe’s character, David, learns that his father (Clifton Powell), the Bishop of their church is ill and near death, he returns home, only to discover that his childhood rival (Idris Elba) is poised to become his father’s successor at the church and has married his cousin (Nona Gaye) as well. While being met with hostility from family members, David also discovers disloyalty within the music empire he is building. Tamyra Gray plays his love interest who is the choir's lead singer and a single mother.

The film is scheduled to be released on October 7th.

Hi...I'm sure Miss Tamyra and Rudy are both very excited!

Extreme Makeover : Hootchie Edition
