And The Winner Is...

With over 16,000 submissions into the talent search contest it was difficult choosing a winner. To all of you who entered the contest, I just want you to know that you have all been entered into the Tyler Perry Studios casting database, and my Casting Director has been instructed to use people from the contest whenever possible. So you may get a call for upcoming movies or TV shows. A lot of you are super talented. Thank you so much for auditioning!

This was a hard decision. The winner of the talent search contest won for several reasons. One is the number of votes, but more important than that is the level of talent. I'm very excited to work with this person because I love breaking fresh new talent. I was so inspired by this person's work that I can't wait to create something for this person to do.

And the winner is Darmirra Brunson.


Let's get to work,

    Congrats in order! Although i entered the contest just as well as many others, I feel that the right decision has been made. The contest states that the winner would get a non speaking walk on role but I think she deserves so much more. She has talent! You mentioned that all the contestants that entered will be submitted in your database to your casting directors, so I will keep the fact that my chance is coming soon.

    She DEFINITELY deserves to win! She was awesome and made me laugh. That took a lot of work, with such a short notice of time. That means, like Ms. Oprah once said, "Preparation meets opportunity!" Congrats, young lady!!
