Brandon Victor Dixon: A Star on TheStreet

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Tony Award-nominated actor Brandon Victor Dixon chats with former actor Cherella Cox, as TheStreet continues its coverage of African Americans during Black History Month. Dixon is playing Berry Gordy in Motown: The Musical, written by Gordy, and now playing at the Lunt-Fontanne Theater.

Dixon is an actor who says he is not afraid of being typecast. The star has played a variety of characters, including Simba in The Lion King. He also received a Tony Award nomination for his role as Harpo in The Color Purple, which has opened up a lot of doors for the performer.

When asked his favorite song in Motown: The Musical -- out of more than the 50 songs from the '60s, '70s and '80s -- Dixon finally picks Marvin Gaye's "Mercy Me." (Cast member Bryan Terrell Clark is currently performing the part of Gaye.)

Check out the video to hear Brandon sing.
