Move on over Tyler Perry, K. Michelle is bringing her R&B pipes to the main stage!
Back in January, it was announced that K. Michelle was working on a musical with VH1, directed by the one and only Idris Elba, and we finally have a clip of the August 19 release titled, “K. Michelle: Rebellious Soul – The Musical.”
Judging from the preview, K. stars in the play as a chick making ends meet by swerving on a pole, and she ends up meeting the man of her dreams in the club one night. What goes on from there is a lot of drama and heartbreak with VH1 describing it as a “hip hopera.”
The dark, cautionary tale is directed by Golden Globe Award-winning actor Idris Elba. Taking center stage in this ‘hip hopera,’ K.Michelle’s powerful ballads capture the lust, love, heartache and redemption of a fierce woman struggling to break the cycle of bad romance. What will be her fate when she catches her man in a lie and her past comes back to haunt her?
