"My name is Arthur Callahan; I was Company Manager on the National Broadway Tour of “The Color Purple”.

VirLinda Stanton played the role of Church Lady Darlene & Shug’s (us). Stanton’s sparkling soprano voice and effervescent personality are quite a treat to have on tour. Stanton was also never shy to participate in Press around the country, sharing her voice, talking about her journey to The Color Purple, and sharing her life’s testimony. Listening to Stanton sing or speak exhibited the blessed life she has worked for. The time I spent with VirLinda showed this was just a glimpse at what she has to share with the world."

"VirLinda Stanton is one of the most dynamic and impactful entertainers I’ve ever had the privilege to work with. Upon learning more about VirLinda, as a performer and as a person, it is obvious that something is really special about this individual. Not only does she prove herself as a tremendous vocalist, but she also sets a mark for greatness that motivates everyone around her to achieve as well. My experiences over the last 30 years in this business have brought me across only a handful of performers that resonate in my mind as truly special, and VirLinda is one of them. She is passionate about what she does. She is committed to perfection. She is the type of person whose personality drives the energy in any room and often times is infectious at the least. That dynamic energy is the essence of almost every successful LIVE production, and VirLinda has been given that gift to share around the world. There is no doubt in my mind that her amazing voice as well as her abilities as an actress and dancer will propel her to great success in the years to come. Any production in need of an African American entertainer, one who will captivate and inspire both the audience as well as those onstage, will reap outstanding rewards for many years to come by casting Ms. Stanton. It has been a pleasure to work with VirLinda over the last two years, and I look forward to many more wonderful opportunities in the very near future. "

"I have known Virlinda Stanton for at least 15 years. She is quite a vocalist, actress, dancer and writer. I have served as the Music Director of Langston Hughes’ “Black Nativity” in Seattle, WA for the past 12 years. In the early years of this wonderful show, VirLinda was cast as a dancer and vocalist. She was and is quite the performer! She was always punctual and exhibited the kind of personality needed to perform this wonderful piece of history.

Prior to VirLinda’s performances in “Black Nativity” she sang with my community choir-Total Experience Gospel Choir – for a few years. While in Total Experience, she sang quite a number of leads and solos. You may go to our website to understand the scope of our history/ministry at www.totalexperiencegospelchoir.org. This choir performs 100-125 concerts annually before the “Black Nativity” season begins.

It is my belief that you will be very pleased and sometimes surprised with her devotion and dependability. She listens well and executes her gifts professionally. You will be pleased. It is a pleasure to know VirLinda Stanton."
