Beyoncé as Etta James in Cadillac Records

Beyoncé just received a Golden Globe nomination for Best Original Song in a Motion Picture. The song is titled Once In a Lifetime.

She got many rave reviews for her performance and interpretations of Etta James‘ songs in Cadillac Records, like this one from the New York Times:

“Cadillac Records would be worth seeing for the music alone.. Ms. Knowles’s interpretations of Ms. James’s hits — ‘At Last’ and ‘I’d Rather Go Blind,’ in particular — are downright revelatory. And so, it should be said, is Ms. Knowles’s performance. In her previous film roles she has seemed guarded and tentative, as if worried that her charisma would melt from too much emotional heat. Here, playing a needy, angry, ferociously talented and fantastically undisciplined woman, she is as volcanic and voluptuous as an Italian movie star. Or, more to the point, a real soul diva of the old school.”

Beyoncé has no doubt been in the limelight lately with this movie, her latest album, and to top that off her clothing line Deréon is still going strong as well!
