Queen Latifah has the blues in a beautiful new exclusive poster for her upcoming film Bessie.
In the HBO biopic, the actress and musician stars as 1920s icon Bessie Smith, who transformed from a Tennessee preacher's daughter to "The Empress of the Blues."
Bessie also sheds light on Smith's struggles during her rise to fame. Though the star recently said in Uptown Magazine of Smith's sexuality, "It's not like it's a secret with her story. She was just free," her orientation was merely one way Smith pushed boundaries after stepping into the national spotlight.
Four more exclusive posters also reveal the pivotal characters in Smith's world, portrayed by Boardwalk Empire's Michael Kenneth Williams, Scandal's Khandi Alexander, Sparkle's Mike Epps and Oscar winner Mo'Nique.

Looking may have been canceled, but its star, Jonathan Groff, isn't done advocating for the LGBT community – or its representation in entertainment.
The out actor will be honored with the LGBT scholarship organization the Point Foundation's Point Horizons Award for his activism Monday night in New York City. In addition to acting in gay projects including Looking and The Normal Heart, Groff, 30, says advocating for the gay community has always been a passion.
As the star points out in an exclusive interview with PEOPLE: "There's not a lot of gay programming on TV," which is why he's disappointed Looking, which followed the lives of several out gay men in San Francisco, was canceled by HBO last month. (A finale special is reportedly in the works: Groff doesn't have any details yet but is excited "to get to say goodbye.")
