Octavia Spencer commands the outrageous horror fest Ma…and she gives upmost respect to an under sung diva of dance music in one fantastic sequence. With enthusiasm, Spencer accentuates a scene where the classic dance track Funky Town, performed by Lipps Inc, is playing.
While that song is practically legendary, the magnetic Cynthia Johnson, who sang the lead on all of the band’s songs on their first three recordings, is not nearly as visually present in people’s minds. Hopefully, Johnson, who has continued to perform as a vocalist and instrumentalist over the years, will be given renewed interest as Ma continues to dominate viewers with its sassy thrills.
Until the next time, SWEET love and pink GRUE, Big Gay Horror Fan!
