She may be best known as a soul songstress, but Alicia Keys is now planning to launch herself as an actress.
According to reports in the US, the singer is to star in a new Disney ‘tear-jerker’ which her manager Jeff Robinson has written.
“It’s a little bit of Sparkle, a little bit of Lady Sings the Blues” Jeff told mtv.com. “A lot of people don’t know that she’s been acting longer than she’s been doing music. Her mother is an actress.”
Alicia, who’s currently touring the UK, is expected to star shooting the film early next year.
