The Color Purple's Cynthia Erivo & Danielle Brooks Sing 'I Won't Complain' for Heather Headley's Final Show

The cast of Broadway’s hit musical The Color Purple said goodbye to Heather Headley with an emotional send-off led by stars Cynthia Erivo and Danielle Brooks on Sunday (October 2) in New York City.

Cynthia and Danielle sang an amazing rendition of the gospel song “I Won’t Complain” while the rest of the cast joined in at the end.

Heather was overcome with emotion and threw off her shoes and ripped off her jacket in response to the stunning vocals.

At the end of the performance, Heather was presented with a purple box and all of the actors put tiny portraits of them drawn by artist Annie Govekar inside the box. Watch the whole video below!
