'PRECIOUS' NEW MOVIE BY LEE DANIELS, PRODUCED BY OPRAH WINFREY & TYLER PERRY!
LABELLE + HENDRYX + PRECIOUS = MAGIC
Listen for the 2 songs 'System' & 'It Took A long time' by Labelle (plus 'Now That I Know Who I Am' only on the Soundtrack) written & performed by Nona Hendryx. The songs in the raw & 'close to the bone' new film 'PRECIOUS', released this Friday, November 6th. Director Lee Daniels is genious, Monique is Oscar bound, Gaborey Sidibe is a jewel, Lenny K. (you only dream of male nurses like Mr. K & Mariah left the glam at home, very courageous.
SOME OF WHAT I'VE DONE: Scored and wrote songs with Rahzel, Dead Prez's M1, Doc and Khaliyl for
upcoming feature film "On The One." Composed 11 new songs for Charles Randolph Wright's off Broadway 'play with music' "Blue", starrring Phylicia Rashaad.
Hendryx is a Grammy nominee for "Rock This House" featuring Keith Richards of the Rolling Stones and an Emmy nominee for Disney's "Children of the World."
In her previous 'incarnation' she was a member of Patti LaBelle & the Bluesbelles who transformed into Labelle, the ground breaking glam funk rock band of the 70s, who racked up three gold albums and No.1 hit with "Lady Marmalade (Voulez Vous Coucher Avec Moi Ce Soir?)" As a solo artist she achieved many Top ten hits including Bustin' Out, Transformation, Why Should Cry? and collaborations with Prince, Peter Gabriel, Material and Talking Heads.

CELEBRATE, WHAT'S ON YOUR PLATE. The title song written & produced by Nona Hendryx for the film 'WHAT'S ON YOUR PLATE' being shown internationally at film festivals all year. We all know 'you are what you eat' so check out Sadie & Safiyah to young girls looking for answers. preview the film here
WHAT’S ON YOUR PLATE? is a witty and provocative documentary produced and directed by award-winning Catherine Gund about kids and food politics.
Filmed over the course of one year, the film follows two eleven-year-old African-American city kids as they explore their place in the food chain. Sadie and Safiyah take a close look at food systems in New York City and its surrounding areas. With the camera as their companion, the girl guides talk to each other, food activists, farmers, new friends, storekeepers, their families, and the viewer, in their quest to understand what’s on all of our plates.
