Last year, Withers — no relation to soul singer Bill Withers — earned a Tony nomination for her role in Broadway’s The Color Purple. Now she’s attempting to cross over from theater to R&B. ”Be With You,” the first single from her debut CD, It Can Happen to Anyone, is a sleek and sexy groove that surpasses the album’s dull mix of adult contemporary dance songs and ballads. Not unlike Jennifer Holliday and Heather Headley, Withers proves that gorgeous musical-theater voices don’t always make gorgeous albums.
