Cheryl Barnes

Singer / Musician of R&B/Soul

Cheryl Barnes is a singer who starred in Miloš Forman’s 1979 film adaptation of Hair as the mother of Hud’s little son.Barnes gave an audition when she showed up at an open casting call. She had no agent and was working as a maid in a motel in Maine. Her song "Easy to Be Hard" took only one take and this is the take you see in its entirety in the film. Her later scene in the desert outside the army base was filmed in Barstow, California where she remained. Hair director Miloš Forman talked her into coming to New York for a few months, as he didn't want to see such talent go to waste. However, Barnes returned to Barstow, where she worked as a piano teacher. She remained friends with Miloš and accompanied him to Prague, where he was shooting the film Amadeus.
