In 1983, Nixon won the role of Effie White in the original Broadway production of “Dreamgirls,” replacing actress Jennifer Holliday. During this time, she was signed to Polygram Records London, with a number one dance hit. This won her a tour with Richard Pryor. Following her Broadway success, she became a fixture on the Washington, D.C., music scene with her group Julia & Company.
