Women's four part

This song comes from the 2006 film Dreamgirls and is one of four new songs composed for the adaptation of the 1981 Broadway musical to the screen. Sung by Beyonce, it is an impassioned bid for freedom from a controlling relationship by the character Deena Jones, and it received both Academy and Golden Globe nominations for best song.

The arrangement divides the melody between all four parts to allow all four singers to participate in defining the song's persona, and retains a flavour of Beyonce's vocal embellishment as a vehicle for the song's emotion. The soloistic nature of the melismas mean this arrangement is more suitable for one-a-part ensembles than larger groups.
