Brandy on Starring in Chicago: 'I Won't Disappoint'

The Grammy winner talks her first time on Broadway, Whitney and more.

After more than two decades in the business, it's hard to imagine there's anything Brandy hasn't done. She's a Grammy winning singer, an accomplished actress and one of the biggest personalities in the entertainment business. But this year, Brandy is crossing into a new frontier as a Broadway actress. The singer just began a run as Roxie Hart in the production of Chicago.

We sat down with the always energetic Brandy to talk about how her first stint on the Broadway as Roxie Hart in Chicago is shaping up. "It's going amazing," she tells us in our exclusive interview. "I love rehearsal, I love being busy, I love the grind." But Ms. Norwood has found it difficult to separate her music life from her Broadway life. "It's really hard to not bring the R&B to Broadway" she says. "I love the songs, but I want to put my own little thing on them."

Watch our exclusive sit down with Brandy below to hear more about her Broadway excursion, the now-viral video of her singing with Whitney Houston and what she has planned for her next album.
