Dulce is Motormouth Maybelle in Atlantis Productions' 'Hairspray'

And, by golly, I have a video of her singing the opening lines of I Know Where I've Been, right in front of my lens. Hairspray doesn't open until Nov. 14 yet (at the Star Theater, Roxas Boulevard), but already the prospect of watching this powerhouse singer tackle the musical's soaring gospel number is making me giddy. (Casting coup, Bobby Garcia, casting coup.) The full video interview later, plus my other on-cam chats with Michael De Mesa (in the Harvey Fierstein/John Travolta role of Edna Turnblad) and newcomer Madel Ching (as Tracy Turnblad). The clip lasts only 42 seconds, but see if you don't end up as excited as I am.

PLUS: Queen Latifah wows the throng at the 2007 American Music Awards; the scene from the movie
