We fell in love with Janet Jackson as Penny, the adorable neighbor on the popular sitcom "Good Times." Today, Damita Jo celebrates her 44th birthday. She has a lot to be proud of. From her successful solo career, lead movie roles to multiple Grammy-awards. She will perform for the first time at this year's ESSENCE Music Festival on July 4 in New Orleans. Join us as we wish this fabulous star a Happy Birthday.
