Judith Franklin BIO

Judith Franklin is thrilled to join the Broadway company of Tina – The Tina Turner Musical. Judith’s interest in performing was sparked as a young girl while singing in her hometown of Missouri City, Texas in the Sunshine Choir at Briarchase Baptist Church. She graduated from Houston’s Grammy Award-winning High School for the Performing and Visual Arts as a vocal and dance major and received a music scholarship to Clark Atlanta University where she graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Theatre. Judith traveled the USA in the National Tour of Motown The Musical in 2017, and in 2018 Judith made her Broadway debut in Summer: The Donna Summer Musical. She has performed throughout the United States, Caribbean, Africa, Europe and South America. She has also been seen on TV in “Sesame Street,” Tyler Perry’s “I Can Do Bad All By Myself,” “Greenleaf” and several regional commercials. In 2019 Judith will be seen on the big screen in the movie Super Intelligence, starring Melissa McCarthy. She is a proud member of Broadway Inspirational Voices. Special thanks to Mama & Daddy (My Angel), Jameaka, Jennifer, Family, Friends, Telsey & Co., The Creative Team, VGP Artist Management and Hybrid Talent.
