Singer/songwriter Ester Dean has made a name for herself penning chart topping hits for some of your favorite artists like Rihanna, Nicki Minaj, Beyonce, Lil’ Wayne, R. Kelly and more. To say the least, Ester’s kind of a big deal. Working with A-listers is the norm for Dean, so seeking new and exciting opportunities is high on her list. So Ester’s shaking things up!
The 26-year-old musical double threat is looking to make said threats triple. Dean’s already been on the big screen in cartoon form in ‘Ice Age: Continental Drift’ as Sloth Siren, but she’s making her acting debut in ‘Pitch Perfect–‘ a movie about an all-girl a cappella group called the Barton Bellas–that also stars Anna Kendrick and Brittany Snow.

If you love your movies with a love story wrapped in the triumph of college girls from all walks of life coming together to cover catchy tunes like Blackstreet’s “No Diggity,” Jessie J’s “Price Tags” and Rihanna’s “S&M,” then “Pitch Perfect” is for you. The movie leaves you with a desire to want to start an a cappella group just so you can have your own “Riff Off!”
I’m sure you have no clue what a “Riff Off” is, but that give you more of a reason to see the movie. Well there’s that and Ester Dean’s portrayal of “Cynthia Rose,” a lesbian who’s rough around the edges with a solid gold voice. Rose’s soulful voice landed her a spot on the new and improved version of the Barton Bellas. With a few snags along the way, the Bellas learn that working together will take them to the top!

After watching the film (and in between holding my own auditions for my new a cappella group), I got a chance to sit down with Ester Dean and she told me this movie helped her be comfortable with herself, how she didn’t want to “act like” a lesbian and “Pitch Perfect” was a challenge that she needed.
“Pitch Perfect” is out in theaters today!
