Tracee recalled back to the early 90’s when she was a cast member in the Monday Night Madness show at Jewel Thais-Williams’ “Catch One Club” in Los Angeles, California.
She was backstage in the dressing room when then club manager Carlton Youngblood approached her with the opportunity to audition for the new VH1 Miniseries about the Jackson Five.
This was her very first foray into acting on screen playing the “Snow Flake Girl’ dressed in all white shaking her tail feather in the balcony with her sisters on the night the Jackson Five won the Apollo talent show on August 13, 1967.
During Tracee's initial meeting with the Director at the Ambassador Hotel where filming was taking place, she had no prior training on interacting with A List Actors and was really nervous about meeting another one of her favorite entertainers on set, which was Vanessa L. Williams, whom Tracee's Alter-Ego Destiny Your Mistress of Illusions started impersonating on stage ever since Vanessa won Miss America in 1984.
Another highlight was also watching Holly Robinson Peete in action filming her scenes and seeing Laurence Hilton Jacobs hanging out on set back stage.
Little was she aware, Tracee was advocating for human and civil rights during that time when she'd ignored protocol and what was expected when using the restroom that corresponded with her gender identity during a restroom break.
What had happened was while filming her scenes a week later at the downtown Los Angeles Orpheum Theater, upon her return from the restroom back on set, and when asked by the miniseries Director Karen Arthur what bathroom did she used?
Tracee’s unhesitant response was, “The ladies, of course.”
After the Director smiled and called for Action, Tracee was unaware that she was fulfilling her destiny and purpose for being created just the way she was intended by her Creator.
Another very special acting experience for Tracee was also being featured in “Primary Colors”, starring John Travolta and Emma Thompson portraying the Clinton’s.
It was ironic for Tracee being booked for “Primary Colors”, because she’d previously used her very first time getting involved in politics when she’d exercised her right to vote for the very first time, casting a ballot for Bill Clinton in 1992.
